After my screening of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, I tweeted:
Just saw DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. So, this officially now is the best movie summer since 2008, right?

So, yes, I'm a fan. Dawn isn't as singular as 2008's The Dark Knight and Wall-E but, hey, it's pretty damn wonderful. Intelligent, grown-up, thoughtful, deeply moral: How often can you say these things about a studio blockbuster?
I reviewed the film for Deadspin.
