‘The Hunger Games’ a spectacular adaptation

‘The Hunger Games’ a spectacular adaptation

Thankfully, director Garry Ross gives us a film that perfectly … Read entire article »

‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ a solid prequel

‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ a solid prequel

If you had told me a year ago that I’d really enjoy the prequel to a 1968 Charlton Heston movie starring James Franco and a bunch of CGI chimpanzees, I would have seriously questioned your ability to predict the future. Fast forward to today and I would have asked you for the lottery numbers because Rise of the Planet of the Apes was actually really fun. … Read entire article »
