MOVIEGUIDE REVIEW: http://www.movieguide.org/reviews/dawn-of-the-planet-of-the-apes.html#.U8ftd6gWGCQ
DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES has a very strong emotional ending that makes the movie excellent and covers over a multitude of flaws. A virus has almost destroyed mankind in the last 10 years. Meanwhile, a species of genetically enhanced chimps, gorillas, orangutans, and other apes are living in the forest. Led by Caesar, the apes encounter a human party trying to get a nearby dam restarted to restore power to San Francisco. When one of the humans shoots one of the apes, one of Caesar’s advisors tries to start an all-out war.
DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES would have been better with some judicious cutting. The beginning has too much exposition. Also, some dialogue is on the nose. That said, the movie gets much better as it goes along. The ending is terrific. Even better, the movie is a thoughtful exploration of redemptive moral virtues, including compassion, family and self-sacrifice. Regrettably, the movie contains some strong foul language and very intense battle scenes. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution to DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD
WARNING: Light Nudity and Moderate Violence
MOVIE TRAILER: http://youtu.be/npvJ9FTgZbM
MOVIEGUIDE REVIEW: http://www.movieguide.org/reviews/thor-the-dark-world.html#.U8fvTKgWGCQ
THOR: THE DARK WORLD tells how the Dark Elves once tried to use the Aether, a powerful energy source, to destroy the universe. Thor’s Asgard ancestors stopped the Dark Elves and hid the Aether energy. In the present, Thor is pining over the Earth scientist Jane Foster. A fluke allows Jane to find the Aether energy, but it infects her body. This alerts an evil Dark Elf of its whereabouts. He attacks Asgard and steals the energy. Now, Thor and Jane must find a way to stop him. Against his father’s wishes, Thor recruits his untrustworthy step-brother, Loki, to help them.
THOR: THE DARK WORLD is almost the perfect popcorn movie. The story builds excitement and fun as it develops. It relies on action, character, humour, and romance rather than violence or sex, leading to a satisfying conclusion. THE DARK WORLD has a strong moral, redemptive worldview. Doing the right thing is lifted up, as is being ready to sacrifice your life for others. There is some foul language, pixilated naked crazy man and violence, so THOR: THE DARK WORLD warrants caution.
