You can tell from the beginning that the director and write is the same one of the movie "Once",John Carrey, the plot has a lot of similarities: A set in a city (this time New York); A guy and a girl that meet and music helps them to cope with their problems and get carried away. Also in both movies they want to record an album so they look for other musicians to be able to fulfil their dream. If you like Music and New York , it's a very enjoyable movie. We loved the music and the setting but it lacked originality; in my opinion it should have had a different twist.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes:
I loved the first movie , Rise of the plant of the Apes and I also liked this one, although not so much as the first one. In this film you see a mature ape " Caesar" , who still feel a connection with the human but all will turn out nasty when Koba's lack of trust, would make a war start between the Apes and humans. In-between, Caesar shows his compassion and also humans Malcom and Ellie start to develop a special relationship with him and they will help each other. There is a lot of interaction between humans and apes and fast scenes of the Apes fighting. Definitely recommended to see it in the big screen so that you can get more involved in the fast scenes of the Apes and humans.
