    The Trip

    Another "clever artsy" movie that I'm "not smart enough to understand".

    To which I say: No, you made an uninteresting movie and there's no amount of "voice imitations" you can use to hide the fact that it's boring and it sucks.

    ★★

    I don't know, this just simply wasn't entertaining for me. And the "talking German" jokes were especially flat. But the final speech was excellent though.

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

    ★★★★★

    This is how sequels are done! Everything that was great about the previous installment was improved and expanded, familiar territory is not revisited story wise, new grounds are uncovered and evolution in every way is the forefront of the events shown and explored. And you are not penalized for missing out on the previous installment but rather intrigued to see it if you haven't. The performance of Andy Serkis is beyond words and Toby Kebbell follows swiftly as well. The CG breaks new ground from the first moment and keeps you engaged until the very last.
    Exemplary work and a must see for everyone!

    ★★★★½

    With only a minor complaint related to usual shortcomings of "based on true event" movies (whereby the story feels a bit too much like a "checklist of all major events" without a common string to tie them properly together and provide additional necessary background information) this is a well made and compelling movie that demands to be watched. And on a good sound system because the sound is massive!
