Re: Rise of the Planet of the Apes - Blu-Ray Review

This is one movie I would welcome under my Tree. Thank you for the review Dale!

I would have written less but I didn't have the time.

Great movie and Dale pretty much nails the review. Only thing I would change is the recommendation from rent to buy. It's firmly planted in my BD rack.
You sure you didnt edit it

Well in my own defense, I was trying to be as obvious as possible.

Thanks for the review Dale. On your recommendation (edit) I intend to purchase this one. The comments indicate that it is far better than the reboot attempt 10 years ago. I watched that one with no prior influences, having seen nothing of the previous versions. Like all science fiction movies, I watch with the expectation of more fiction than science, and I don't get uptight about unrealistic space missions when watching a flick about talking chimps running the planet. I very much enjoyed that movie, so I have high expectations for this one.

Re: Rise of the Planet of the Apes - Blu-Ray Review

I liked this movie and would recommend it to others. However it was not quite what I expected based on all the previews. It was made out to be more of an action movie and while not dull there was not a lot of action. I would say a 8/10.

Re: Rise of the Planet of the Apes - Blu-Ray Review

I watched this one and while I enjoyed it, it wasn't as good as people were making it out to be. That's just my opinion, of course. I thought Franco didn't do that great of a job and the star of the show definitely was Caesar, but something about him I just couldn't fully believe... I dunno.
