Are the new planet of the Apes movies the best blockbusters currently running?
Because I can't think of any others with writing as good. I care about the characters and find them engaging.
The science fiction is clever and well done.
The visual effects push boundaries in ways most others have not.
The stories stand on their own as original movies and don't over rely on nostalgia (they throw in references but they're usually subtle and well done). This is unlike The Force Awakens.
As far as I'm concerned, these are the only movies that maintain my faith in blockbusters. Almost all other ones play it safe and are boring.
I actually preferred the first personally. The second was a really good planet of the apes movie but the first had a more prevalent sci-fi element and jailbreak plotline.
also everything about Caesar was god tier
I actually thought of a cool idea
They need to make the next one take place WAY after Dawn. They need to make Caesar and Koba religious figures, with different factions following their ideals that have been twisted over time. Since apes have no record keeping, it would be believable to think that people like Caesar could become legendary over time.
well, the third is War of the planet of the apes, so it''s most likely going to be Caesar leading the remaining apes against the approaching military men who were called at the end of Dawn. Hopefully Caesar is more of a hardened leader as apposed to his last movie, he didnt quite lead the apes the way he should have. Not saying walking into their camp and murdering them like kolba was right, but he definitely should have seen that the humans were a threat because of their leader.
>McQuarrie is not writing and directing Jack Reacher 2, Edward Zwick (Last Samurai) is directing instead, meaning Cruise wants a different flavor for each film in the series like he did with MI before
>McQuarrie is instead directing MI6, breaking the series' formula of bringing in a different filmmaker with his own style each film
>McQuarrie might be writing Edge of Tomorrow 2
Is Tom single-handedly saving the summer blockbuster?
I shut the movie off at the beginning when the main hero is on his way to negotiate with the savage monkeys after they shot at one.
