    ★★

    Strictly for teens - specifically those who haven't seen many horror movies.

    The Post

    ★★★★

    A rousing true story about freedom of the press and female empowerment told classically and entertainingly, without succumbing to histerics, it reaffirms Spielberg's late-career transfiguration from a maker of (unforgettable) escapist fantasies into a chronicler of American history with an unshakable belief in his country's long-standing institutions and core values.

    The Cabin in the Woods

    ★★★★

    Tongue-in-cheek, it disembowels the conventions of the 'Evil Dead'-type of horror stories and, surprisingly, makes for a frightening self-reflexive indictment of the audiences' thirst for human blood onscreen - all masked as silly entertainment.

  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

    ★★★★★

    Majestic, dead-serious epic about innate decency and innate treachery in intelligent species. Character interaction betrays not a hint of foolishness - they all survived devastating tragedies and still manage to go on, even if unable to be completely happy or carefree again. A summer blockbuster tinged with melancholy.

    A Roland Emmerich production this ain't.
