How do you follow up the best (?) James Bond movie of all time? Obviously by releasing this hunk of garbage and recasting the lead with an out of shape and out of touch Sean Connery as James Bond 007.

"My name is Bond, James Bond."

“My name is Bond, James Bond.”

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) REVIEW

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) REVIEW

dawn-planet-apes

Director: Matt Reeves
Written By: Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver
Cast: Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Toby Kebbell

MILD PLOT SPOILERS AHEAD.

Plot: Taking place ten years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Caesar and his expanding nation of Apes have taken refuge in the Muir Woods just outside of San Francisco City. When a small group of humans show up hoping to restore power to the city via the use of a hydroelectric generator, tension is had and Caesar, with the upper hand, forbids the humans from entering the area ever again. However with the dam generator being the only hope for survival the humans have, Malcolm and his group re-enter the woods in the hopes of convincing Caesar they aren’t all bad and can be trusted. Soon, plotting begins on both ends to reclaim the lands and the war between humans and apes is brought to the forefront.

Review: First of all, I beg you, no, I plead with you to please go and watch Rise of the Planet of the Apes before watch Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I don’t say that often to people, but it really is worth it for all the little minors things. Plus Rise was such a brilliant and unexpected film that deserves repeat viewing just to ease you into Dawn.

22 Jump Street (2014) REVIEW

22 Jump Street (2014) REVIEW

22_jump_street-wide

Director: Phil Lord & Christopher Miller
Written by: Michael Bacall, Oren Uziel & Rodney Rothman
Starring: Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Peter Stormare, Wyatt Russell, Amber Stevens and Jillian Bell

POSSIBLE MILD SPOILERS AHEAD…BUT IF YOU’VE SEEN 21 JUMP STREET, THEN NO SURPRISES AT ALL.

Plot: As the warning above says, if you’ve seen 21 Jump Street, then you pretty much know the outline of this one. A new drug known as Whyfy has been making the rounds and after a student is found dead, 22 Jump Street is put back into operation, with a larger budget mind you. Jenko and Schmidt return as undercover cops and once again they need to “infiltrate the dealers, find the supplier.”
