War for the Planet of the Apes

Recommended Posts

I am fairly stoked for this one taking my son Saturday.  Anybody else dig the new Apes movies?  Love these.  High marks so far.

I likely won't take my son to it, but I am think I will take myself to it next week sometime.  It has been getting some really good reviews as of late.

I'm in! I love this franchise. And to think, it started off with James Franco trashing the CGI, acting and character development.

I cannot wait...the reviews are stellar and this appears to be a reboot that defies most...these sequels are getting better and better.

And hopefully this movie will literally save this round of summer movies for me.  I liked WW and Alien Cov but overall the season has been very average at best.  Till now (I hope)

doesn't get enough credit for being such a good trilogy .

 

 

It really doesn't.  I'm glad we got the three movies though.   I remember watching the first one and loved it, but worried it wouldn't get more sequels.

I liked the first two and thought this was terrible. Slow and plodding, just boring. Probably the worst movie I have seen this year and I see a lot of movies in the theater. I couldn't wait till it was over. I saw the reviews and expected much more. Looked at IMBD again today and there are a lot of 1 star reviews and I fall in line with those people.

I liked the first one but not the 2nd. I will wait for it to be free on HBO. The 2nd one overplayed how smart the apes were. They pick up guns and are instantly better than humans who train with them. Perhaps it's the soldier in me, but apes without guns beating humans with guns in the 2nd one was silly.

I've also always hated how simplistic and one dimensional the humans are. Meh, the 2nd one ruined it for me. Just because they're smart doesn't make them effective tacticians or accurate riflemen. I'll still watch 3 but when it's free.

Oh man your gonna hate how the giant human army dies in this one then if it was not the end of the movie im sure people might have walked out.
