    G-S-T Review…Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

    In 2011 Rise of the Planet of the Apes was an unexpected hit, that’s for sure. Rupert Wyatt made a film more about the human connection than the Apes and therefore was able to showcase sympathy and compassion ultimately downplaying the gruesome fall of man. It was a great film and now, in 2014, Matt Reeves puts his stamp on the series with an equally impressive follow up. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes perfectly compliments Wyatt’s efforts with a story that is a contrast in many ways but he continues in an equally engaging and fulfilling way. It’s an astounding film which this time focuses less on humans…

    This Summer, Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In) will unleash the Simian uprising better known as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Actually, as far as the timeline of the time goes, the apes have pretty much won due largely in part to the “Simian Flu” outbreak that has decimated the human population.

    Off the Shelf…'Cloverfield'

    When J.J. Abrams and his son went to Japan he was amazed how many stores still had Godzilla merchandise for sale. Really J.J.? You had to go there to know that;) Well after his trip he intended to make a Godzilla for American audiences. I don’t think he totally succeeded but he definitely didn’t fail either. Cloverfield is really a fantastic film that utilizes “shaky cam” in a way that stands apart from the trite and overdone realtime/mockumentary films of the last 10 years. This style worked so well that it made an already good movie that much better.
