WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES

“These movies aren’t just serious, they’re *serious* in a young man’s overcompensating manner that becomes monotonous.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“It’s clear that Reeves…has studied up on the Westerns of Sergio Leone, films like THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY, since he loves getting in tight on Caesar’s eyes, much like Leone did on Clint Eastwood’s.” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

“…as an example of crisp and compelling storytelling, this WAR is a loss.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES is a nice finish to a trio of solid movies.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES takes every aspect of the films preceding it and improves on it in every way possible.” – Nick Casaletto, We Live Entertainment

“The PG-13 rating disservices the genre, the film has no real target audience, and I don’t expect to be seeing WISH UPON staying at the multiplex for too long.” – Nick Casaletto, We Live Entertainment

“Because WISH UPON is taken so seriously, it ends up becoming a semi-decent comedy.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“…in a brisk 90 minutes it provides its audiences with a few shudders at the real horror show–high school.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

A Ghost Story - Still 3A GHOST STORY

“This little low-budget film begins to contain multitudes, with the white sheet of Affleck’s costume becoming a blank slate upon which we are free to project our own yearnings and anxieties.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery
