Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Standard

dawnRating: PG-13

Ten years after disease wipes out a large number of humans, a group of intelligent apes finds itself at war with neighboring human survivors.

This is the second movie in the reboot of the Planet of the Apes series. The first movie was excellent and I highly recommend it. This one seemed a little boring to me; there wasn’t much action until the last 45 minutes or so of the movie (and it’s over 2 hours). Still, it was visually stunning, and Andy Serkis (who plays Caesar) is as impressive as ever. I give it an 8 out of 10.

The Giver

Standard

giverRating: PG-13

Jonas lives in a seemingly utopian society. His life is simple until the day he is chosen to learn from the Giver. The Giver teaches Jonas what the real world is like, and through his lessons Jonas discovers just how corrupt his community is.

Lovers of the book may be a little disappointed at the differences in the movie. However, I think the movie was good and the message of the book was presented nicely. It’s a relatively emotional film that tries to remind you of all of the beauty in the world. Even with the changes I enjoyed it and would watch it again. I give it an 8 out of 10.
