I'm seven years late to the party, but I saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes of the Dawn of the War for the Planet of the Dawn of the Apes of the Apes AKA the first one.

I really enjoyed it! The mocap performance from Andy Serkis was a real treat - it's stunning how far digital performance has come over the last couple of decades and I think Gollum was a big part of it. Great stuff.

That was cool! It looked a bit mechanical at points - I suppose that'll be down to not having the accuracy of a proper mo-cap suit - but video games have really benefited from Hollywood's progression with digital performance. I wonder when we're going to hit the uncanny valley in full force... can't be long now.

Their is a Star Wars Ray Trace Tech Demo which I thought was real to begin with, it's that good. I'm on my phone now otherwise I'd put a link in.

I absolutely loved Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The two sequels are good, though nowhere near as good, but that first is a magnificent film.

That's cool! Visually, that's tough to distinguish from the film itself. I think the animations give it away though - there's a slight unnatural jerkiness to their motion, especially when the Stormtroopers get a shock when they see Phasma, that shows we've still got work to do before nailing that level of true realism.

I had plans for a big hike to the mountains today, but it was absolutely pissing down with rain. I walked to the cinema to see if i could prepurchase tickets for Infinity War on Friday . . . and ended up watchinf Pacific Rim Uprising.

Was it clever or revolutionary? No. Was it good, cheesy, popcorn fun with a likeable cast, emotional beats and some entertaining twists? Yep. Did it use a popular meme in a way that was funny but also appropriate and didn't take me out of the moment? Haha, no! Did it have a cute little homage to Gundam which seemed like a heartfelt acknowledgement to an obvious inspiration without undermining the film's own story or trading on borrowed affection? Yep. Is John Boyega as effortlessly cool as Idris Elba? Obviously not. Did I get to watch a big Kaiju film where monsters smash up Tokyo and fight on Mt Fuji while I'm actually in Japan? Hell yeah!
