Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on December 27, 2011

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is both a lot better than it looked and still not all that good. Between the trailers and the fact that you know that eventually apes rule the world, everything that happens is completely expected.

I don’t really like James Franco that much as a serious actor. He was good on Freaks and Geeks, pretty good in Pineapple Express, and excellent playing himself on 30 Rock, but otherwise? Not really a fan. I do like Freida Pinto, and I wish she would bring her hotness to more movies that are actually good. But the star of the movie is Andy Serkis and the motion capture technology they use for the main ape. They do a great job with it. That’s not really enough to make me enjoy the movie very much, but it’s impressive nonetheless.
