Rise of the Planet of the Apes

When it comes to film genres, I have to admit that science fiction is not on top of my favorite. My hubby on the contrary, is a big fan (I guess it is human nature for them to like these kind of stuff, no? lol~~) So when he suggested the Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I was like, hmm… but he persuaded me and even assured me that I’m gonna like it. Given that he knows me too well, I decided to give it a try.

Well, he’s right. What a great film!

It turned out that the Rise of the Planet of the Apes is not a simple science fiction film just loaded with CGI/Special Effects, but a very powerful and emotionally driven one. The action scenes are simply spectacular, and most importantly, the story at the movie’s core is very engaging.

I am not going to reveal any spoilers here, but even if you’ve never seen a Planet of the Apes film or you aren’t a fan of the whole series, this film is still a worth see if you want something decent yet interesting. My hubby said the 1968 original science fiction classic is even better. Okay, that one is now on my must see list. ;-) What’s your recent favorite movie?

    I can’t name favorites, I watch every single movie there is and I have many I like. Yesterday I saw The Iron Lady – I’m a huge fan of both Margaret Thatcher and Meryl Streep, and it was very nice.
    A few that stood out for me from 2011: Alabama Moon, Hanna, Submarine, Money Ball, The Help and Jane Eyre.
