War for the Planet of the Apes
Last week we saw the final chapter of the current Planet of the Apes saga. We were extremely excited about this film because we are fans of the previous Planet of the Apes movies about Caesar.
This movie had a much different tone from the previous two movies. The title gives you a good guess on the film's genre. Although don't expect giant battle scenes. The film had more quiet, intense moments as the story follows a small group of apes on a mission within a much larger war.
War for the Planet of the Apes gets E - Exceptional
It completes the story we have been following for the past three movies. As these movies made the Apes the protagonists showing us a different side of this story. You'll be happy with the ending but maybe a bit sad to see the Caesar's origin story come to a close.
Then we saw a much different war film this week.
Dunkirk gets E - Exceptional
This movie is phenomenal. The story is about the careful evacuation of hundreds of thousands of British soldiers on a French beach that was surrounded my enemy forces during World War II. Now that movie description could sound a little boring and it could be a very boring film, that is if it was created by anyone other than Christopher Nolan.
Nolan brings you right into what it felt like to be part of this war. The movie is loud, but also quiet. It's also very suspenseful and heart pounding. You need to see it on the big screen. It's the only way to engulf yourself into the film.
Next up ... Atomic Blonde. I'm hoping it's going to be good. Also we got a bit distracted with all the San Diego Comic Con breaking news and trailers that we may see Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets sometime this week.
