WAR FOR PLANET OF THE APES: Score: A+
Rated PG 13, 140 minutes
WAR FOR PLANET OF THE APES is the first movie of 2017 that I have awarded an A+ rating. If the Oscars were being held today, this is the BEST PICTURE OF THE YEAR. Technically, it is a stunning achievement. Visually, it is breathtaking. The screenplay is rock solid. And Andy Serkis (as Caesar) should finally receive his well deserved Oscar nomination as Best Actor of the Year.
