Movie Review: ‘Dawn of The Planet of The Apes’ Starring Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman

As far as reboots of well established franchises go, Rise of the Planet of the Apes certainly ranked among the ones that was (or is, if you still haven’t seen it) very well worth your time. I certainly wish more sequels would turn out like this one. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes leads off […]

We already saw a big shift in the last two weeks when Paramount announced a month before release that “GI Joe: Retaliation” would be postponed nine months until March 2013.  Check out Blake’s thoughts here.  I think that is a special exception though, due to these films being so far from their intended release dates […]
