  • War for the Planet of the Apes

    War for the Planet of the Apes

    ★★★★½

    That concludes one of the best modern trilogies we have, along with The Lord of the Rings and The Dark Knight Trilogy.

    Two years after the soldiers arrived at the end of Dawn, Caesar is fighting a bitter war with a mad Colonel out to eradicate every single ape alive.

    This is a long and very heavy movie. Coming back from it I feel totally drained, as it is almost like Ape-pocalypse Now meets Ape-Schindler's List. It has a few…

    Colossal

    ★★★½

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    ★★★★½

    I don't think superhero films should be comedies, history has proven that they work so much better as thrillers. And that's why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favourite Marvel film to date, possibly even more so than The Avengers.

    When someone threatens to cause major damage to S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America has to rethink everything he knows - already trying to adapt to the 21st century, he's making new friends and meeting old ones, thinking of partners lost and…
