    Terminator Genisys 2015

    ★★★ Watched 01 Jul, 2015

    A dystopian future, where the world is bleak, littered with scrap and where machines rule... But enough about Wall-E, let's talk about Terminator Genisys.

    Genisys is yet another film that hops onto the Hollywood trend of selective sequels, choosing to take place after Terminator 2: Judgement Day and ignoring the events that occurred in T3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation. Not that I blame them. The last two sequels were nothing to write home about and got panned…

I mean this is a story about a relatively unknown group of heroes that features…

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 2014

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 03 Aug, 2014

    There's a lot to like about Dawn. Like a lot of great sequels, the themes are a lot darker than its predecessor, and that in itself lends an emotional weight to the proceedings, adding to the feeling that there is a lot at stake to the events that unfold on-screen.

    There is a more focus on the apes this time around, and the perfect marriage of technical wizardry coupled with nuanced motion performance allows the film-maker to create scenes that…
