War For the Planet of the Apes

So the original Planet of the Apes films are some of my favorite films, i rank it right under Star Wars as my favorite sci fi franchise. I absolutely love the series, sure each one may not have topped the last, but overall, they are all great. Tim Burton, fuck you, yours sucks, but luckily Rise of the Planet of the Apes came out, and it was really fucking good. It was a remake of sorts of Conquest for the Planet of the Apes, along came the sequel, Dawn and it was just as good, it was basically a whole new story, so we all knew it was not trying to be the originals, which is for the best. Now we get War For the Planet of the Apes, and this is a great fucking film, GREAT. The dynamic with the apes is great, they are genuine characters, and the subtitles really brings a new touch, as the first half, is basically just them searching for Woody Harrelson. The comedy is funny(Steve Zahn is what Jar Jar should have been) . The film looks beautiful, it is masterfully shot, and shows how good blockbusters can be.There is alot of heart here, human wise, apes wise, everything works. Lots of sweet nods to the originals, the end having their new home sets up the main city from Planet of the Apes, the music is far more in tone with the originals, hell even if it wasn't a nod, it still sounds great, plus the coolest easter egg of all......NOVA!
