A South Korean filmmaker, a bizarre plot, Tilda Swinton with cartoonish teeth, and cannibalism. What could go wrong? Well, not much.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Andy Serkis is back, covered in CGI fur, and doing an amazing job. A simple plot, emotional storytelling, and solid directing make this film one to see.

A little independent film. I missed in it theaters, but caught up with it on Netflix. Yes, some course language and some offensive behavior. But, on the whole, a sweet, meaningful, and enjoyable film.
