I loved Rise because of the emotion it packed in, this one needs to do the same. I love action movies, sure, but I also love when they add in an amazing story and emotional dialogue, which is what Rise was, and am hoping Dawn is. Great review.
TheAbaryMan369 - 7/9/2014, 7:19 AM
And yes, a Reboot reboot would be [frick]ing genius
TheAbaryMan369 - 7/9/2014, 7:22 AM
And as of now, Mr Sunday Movies is #9 on the list of top YouTube movie critics on Watchmojo, scoring higher than their own site. LOL, but congrats. 562 votes is surely impressive

@Abary That's awesome! Hopefully they'll decide to make it into a video, it'd be great for his channel.
MrSundayMovies - 7/9/2014, 7:58 AM

Good review, @ Mr Sunday! Seeing it on Saturday!

TheRealRemyLebeau - 7/9/2014, 8:10 AM
@MrSunday I expect a realremy review. I hear that film has an A cinemascore and projected to earn $150 million opening weekend. ;)

Hollywood Inserts Gun Control Subtext in New Planet of the Apes Movie.

http://www.infowars.com/hollywood-inserts-gun-control-subtext-in-new-planet-of-the-apes-movie/

This film demonizes the 2nd Amendment, boycott this film.
SuperCat - 7/9/2014, 8:15 AM
LMAO!!! @ TheRealRemyLebeau
TheRealRemyLebeau - 7/9/2014, 8:18 AM
Shut up @spacepope. Nobody cares. Your 2nd Amendment right is intact as is mines. Kids see these films remember that. :D
GodzillaKart - 7/9/2014, 8:29 AM
@SpacePope: Stop reading "infowars". It is making you a touch stupider than you would otherwise be.
Doopie - 7/9/2014, 8:32 AM
people want to boycott for subtext now? what's wrong with gun control? fewer guns means fewer deaths. I'm all for Americans having their rights fulfilled but there are an awful lot of innocent dead people, many of whom are children, that wouldn't be dead if guns (and ammunition) weren't so readily available.

Does the second amendment cover ammo? I know it say the right to bear arms but what if ammo were banned?

Really?!?!
Doopie - 7/9/2014, 8:37 AM
I like the idea of not getting shot in the streets. Whose side does that put me on?
SpacePope - 7/9/2014, 8:38 AM
@Doopie.

Every state where guns are banned the crime rate is the highest, look at New York and Chicago they have the highest gun deaths even though both states banned guns, when the citizenry is disarmed only the criminals have the guns.

The top men were classical liberals. The bottom men were/are statists.
Doopie - 7/9/2014, 8:46 AM
New York and Chicago have very high populations which may mean the numbers are slightly off. The more people packed in to a city, the higher the crime rate is going to be.

Stopping the shipment and sale of illegal guns is also part of gun control. It doesn't just mean your average citizen can't have a gun.

The only people who should have access are the police and armed forces but even then they can be abused.

I love America, it's a great country but each time I go I worry about the number of guns and who has them.

Having said that I did go to the gun range when last there and it was a lot of fun - but that was a controlled environment.

@doopie
While I don't agree to with boycotting a movie for supposed subtext, I couldn't disagree with your view more. Banning bullets defeats the whole purpose of of the 2a in the first place. While I agree that innocent people die by guns, there is also innocent people that are saved with guns. Should we ban gas because cars have contributed to innocent deaths. In a perfect world you can snap your fingers and say no more guns equals no more violence. We just don't live in that world. America has more guns than people at this point. You can't just snap your fingers and make them all disappear. I'm sorry but as long as they got theirs, I'm gonna keep mines.

"The only people who should have access are the police and armed forces but even then they can be abused."

[frick]ing statist statement.
Doopie - 7/9/2014, 8:53 AM

I fully understand the position that pro-gun people take and yes guns can indeed save lives. It's a very tough problem. There is obviously no magic wand we can wave that will remove all guns or (most importantly) people's intention to shoot and kill others. I really don't think America will ever change it's policy but eventually you've got to ask yourself - how many school shootings will it take? how many lives lost?

There is of course the old saying that guns don't kill people, people do. I think there is some truth to that - it's people who want to kill others not the gun itself, but without the gun it is that much harder to wreak such catastrophe.

"Stopping the shipment and sale of illegal guns is also part of gun control. It doesn't just mean your average citizen can't have a gun."

and how well is stopping the flow of illegal guns working for chirac and Detroit. The control part of gun control is only for those people who obey laws. Criminals don't give two shits about the law.

Ammosexual gun fetish retards, take your crap outta here! Don't want to see it.

Ramiel

you are an anarchist then? self governance is a great idea but rarely works in the real world.

fortycals

well don't you think the authorities should be trying all the more harder to stop the flow then? the net needs to be tightened. If those cities suddenly over turned the ban do you think gun-crime would go down? You could argue that criminals would be more fearful of retaliation/someone having a gun also but the criminals don't give two shits
fortycals - 7/9/2014, 9:10 AM
@doopie
See but guns don't make it just easier for the bad guys, it makes it easier for the good guys also. In most of these recent shooting as soon as they meet armed resistance, they normally shoot them selves. Besides the easiest and most deadly way to kill is a home made bomb. You see what a pressure cooker did in Boston. What alot of people don't take into account is that evil will find away. It's up to the good to be prepared to deal with evil.

Just visit gunssavelives.net
The website documents the numerous incidents where guns in the hands of citizens has resulted in saving lives.

^^^Here is a list of school shootings prevented or stopped by armed people.

" If those cities suddenly over turned the ban do you think gun-crime would go down?"

Look at crime statistics from dc. As soon as the ban on guns was lifted, all crime started to decline. Now that ordinary people could at least have guns in their home, they were less likely to be burglarized. The bans don't affect criminals, they don't care. They only affect law abiding citizens.
Doopie - 7/9/2014, 9:24 AM
I am in full agreement - guns can and do save lives but that doesn't negate the fact that they also end many. And yes, someone who really wants to kill a bunch of people will find a way regardless of their circumstance. Labelling 'good guys' and 'bad guys' is a bit difficult. A responsible gun owner can kill some one in a moment of madness. Guns are dangerous because human beings are dangerous.

Look I'm not American and far be it from me to say what your laws should be so I'll leave it at this - if we lived in a world where everyone had a gun, I would not feel safer
fortycals - 7/9/2014, 9:44 AM
@doopie
I can can agree that the the world isn't so black and white to be able to label good/bad guys so definitively. What I do know is that I shouldn't have to depend on others(police and military) for the protection of me and mines. I grew up in dc, during the crack epidemic, when it was known as the murder capital. I know what can happen in the time it takes for the cops to respond. I have seen people convicted on gun charges anyway, when it is a cut and dry case of self defense. There is a big difference in feeling safe and being safe.
Doopie - 7/9/2014, 9:54 AM
I have been to DC, I did not feel safe. I don't want to disrespect the city or anything but to me it seemed like a bit of a dive. When there's an armed guard on the door to McDonald's, you know something is up.

I understand your point about not wanting to rely on others to protect yourself and it has got to such a point in the US that it is impractical to remove guns for that very reason.

Perhaps it's because I am from a country that has very strict gun laws I feel this way, but had the Constitution not outlined the right to bear arms America would be a totally different and (in my opinion at least) a better place.

I suppose the bottom line is that people will always kill people regardless of the weapon used. It's a scary world though where it is as easy as pointing and squeezing.
