War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)Directed by Matt ReevesThe opening of this third entry in the rebooted "Planet of the Apes" series recaps the events of the previous two movies in the series. An experimental serum intended to cure Alzheimer's disease in humans results in most of humanity getting wiped out, and a race of super-intelligent apes being created. The apes, led by Caesar (Andy Serkis) want peace but conflict inevitably arises, sparking off a battle between the apes and humans. Caesar and his tribe of apes go into hiding – but a band of soldiers led by Colonel McCullough (Woody Harrelson) want to find and capture them. For me, this rebooted "Planet of the Apes" series has to be the prime example of movies that consistently exceeded expectations. Each of them has been better than the previous, and this third entry was the best in my opinion. I've given very few details about the storyline, but suffice to say, the movie is very engaging. It's epic and dramatic, with great characterisation (whether that character is a human or an ape). Most of the film focuses on the apes, so the performances of the actors have been motion captured and rendered as visual effects. The effects are amazing, so true to life that you'll never once think that what you're watching is actually not real. Andy Serkis I think deserves an Oscar for his incredible performance as Caesar. The movie looks gorgeous, and the music by Michael Giacchino is excellent too. The only criticism I have about the movie is that it's a bit long at 140 mins, it could have been trimmed down a bit. However, that doesn't take away from the fact that is movie is brilliant. I'd rate it a 9/10, highly recommended.This is a sketch of Caesar, from the movie. I drew this with pencil and colour pencil on paper, and this is a scan that I'm posting.This is also an entry for this weekend's @instagram Weekend Hashtag Project, #WHPISpyEmojis. #🦍 #274 / 16-Jul-17
