Hail Caesar! - A 'War for the Planet of the Apes' Review


It is a rare instance in Hollywood when a remake of a film or franchise surpasses the original, but that is exactly what happened Rupert Wyatt's Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Matt Reeve's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014). Perhaps an even rarer occurrence in blockbuster filmmaking is when the end of a trilogy meets the expectations of two epic predecessors, from Return of the Jedi to Back to the Future Part III many iconic franchises and filmmakers have failed to complete a perfect story.  Could Director Matt Reeve defy the typical Trilogy curse with War of the Planet of the Apes or better yet distinguish itself above its two previous near perfect predecessors? Find out in our War for the Planet of the Apes review after the break...

One Web Short of Perfection - 'Spider-Man' Homecoming Review


It has been over a decade since audiences have been given a quality Spider-Man film with Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 in 2004.  After years of symbiotic let downs, and six sided false promises, arguably the most popular character in modern fiction was given a new hope when Sony reached a deal with Disney to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  

In 2016, the impossible happened when Disney revealed their new Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland, finding what seemed like the first true balance between both Peter Parker and Spider-Man. However as much of the Superhuman Civil War that Holland was able to steal via his slick web swinging and sheer joy.  It was not quite a big enough sample size to reveal wether or not this new web-head was too good to be true; an answer that would have to be settled in Spider-Man's first true Marvel film: Jon Watt's Spider-Man Homecoming.
