Oz_The_Great_and_Powerful-2013-Movie-banner

SYNOPSIS: A small-time magician arrives in an enchanted land and is forced to decide if he will be a good man or a great one. REVIEW: Why oh why did Hollywood decide that a prequel to “The Wizard Of Oz” (1939) was necessary?

Film Review: Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes (2011)

Rise-of-the-Planet-of-the-Apes-Pictures[1]

SYNOPSIS: An origin story set in present day San Francisco, where man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. REVIEW: I think it’s safe to say that The Black Saint was feeling at best, dubious when he heard of this reboot of the “Planet Of The Apes” series.
