Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

This sequel to the 2011 "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" is thoughtful, brutal, and operatically committed to its premise.

Land Ho! Poster

Land Ho!

Review by Glenn Kenny

Rage Poster

Rage

Review by Glenn Kenny

Affluenza Poster

Affluenza
