Movie Review: War For the Planet Of The Apes

Pros :
- exciting war drama
- mixing Shakespeare and Joseph Conrad in very outdated good way
- loved the operatic curtain close
- brilliant performance Andy Serkis (he will win best actor at 2017-2018 Oscar)

Cons:
-expository dialogues
-need cooler/iconic scenes and dialogues , eg. Apocalypse Now
-it's 2+ hours long but it should be 4 hours, split it in two movies
-Colonel (Woody H) lacks impact at the end
-the Colonel needs more muscles; looks weak
-the "human" zoo - lacked a believable security design, eg fences
-the helicopter invasion scene had very little pacing/build-up and visual backstory
-absent in national and international geographical cinematographic flavoring and marco screenwriting bits

Coming soon, my review of Christopher Nolan's WAR MASTERPIECE "Dunkirk.


99% of the critics are loving it. But it might be decisive on the "pedestrian" level.


Feel free to post your reviews here. Please comment on the writing and direction.

Coming soon too, my review of story and direction of :

ATOMIC BLONDE which Opens July 28 !!
www.atomicblonde.com
Starring Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella.


Looks good and critics are loving it.


But the LESBIAN scene between Theron and Sofia Boutella might
be too much for some.


And might or might not be acceptable by comic con fans.

Please feel free to post your reviews of the story and direction.

I will post my review after I watch it.

Here is my review of Dunkirk:

Pros:
-intense action
-great sound effects
-awesome stunts
-ace cinematography
-pretty to look at



Cons:
-repetitive action
-too experimental it its unique structure
-this movie was made for critics and fill buffs
-not meant for the average Joe
-we go to war movies for romance, drama and then some unique action scenes. UNIQUE!!!!!!!!
-linear or non linear - please Mr. Nolan give us a war movie with a heart and soul and love and its predictable brutality
-MAKE IT UNPREDICTABLE!!!!!
-don't make movies for boozy intellectualized film critics and war film geeks
-felt like Malick at times
-and why DID 4 couples walk out of the theater?

Pros:

Watch TLOTR and learn how to make movies . And write them.
