Rise of the Planet of the Apes
I was surprised that this is actually a pretty good film and a lot stronger reworking of the original storyline that that Wahlberg film a few years back. James Franco works in a lab and is trying to come …

the preview pretty much summed up what I saw and it was a way better film than the last planet of the apes and the thought of a sequel to this makes it even better,, def worth a watch

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
This is my favorite of the series, by far. The reason: it's the most believable...well, except for Freida Pinto whose character really didn't add anything to the story. James Franco has quickly become …

Remakes, prequels, re-boots, re-issues and re-imaginings often fall under one creative and narrative flaw. No matter how good a film is or tries to be, it always feels rather predictable. It is rather …

Watching the first twenty minutes of 127 Hours I was repelled by what I was watching, and not just by Aron Ralston's rope, either.  It doesn't help a review when you want to be uplifted and …

James Franco just keeps rising as one of the most interesting and underrated actors in Hollywood. Ever since seeing him play James Dean in a made-for-TV biopic, I've been watching him very carefully …

REALLY well done film. Went in very skeptical of how they could make a two hour film from a guy stuck under a rock... and a story for which we already know the ending. Both director and actor made for …
