    John Wick

    ★★★★

    Seriously, where did "John Wick" come from? It's Keanu Reeves' best film in years. Lacking in any pretense and reminds me (fondly) of Korean revenge films.

    And it's all around killing a puppy. Seriously, it works in an absurd but incredibly entertaining way. Just different enough to be a refreshing action film.

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

    ★★★★½

    This isn't just a good summer film but a legitimately intelligent and emotionally mature science fiction film with mediations on culture, law, and tribalism. The film's emotional core is driven by the performance of Andy Serkis on top of WETA's stunning mo-cap CGI work.
