War for the Planet of the Apes ★★★★

I actually cheered when we got some poop flinging. We always joke about how King Kong never throws his poop and no other ape or monkey centric fantasy movie includes that. And here it is. In maybe the classiest ape fantasy movie series ever!

Anyway, this one is a bit weaker than the last one. Once Caesar gets caught, the pace of this movie takes a bit of a nosedive and it doesn't help that the villain is so close to Col. Kurtz, that it's almost laughable. (Nothing against Woody Harrelson's performance.)

But damn, his POTA movies, put Matt Reeves on top of my "directors to watch" list. I might even check out his LET THE RIGHT ONE IN remake, although I hated the original.
