Movies We Watch

Movie: There Be Dragons

"All wars begin long before the first shot is fired and continue long after the last bullet has done its job."
Set during the Spanish Civil War and tells the story between two friends Manolo and Josemaria Escriva who later becomes a Priest who during the civil war starts Opus Dei (God's Work.) This movie is about betrayal, love, hatred, friendship but most importantly about forgiveness. This movie moves slow but the ending is so powerful and it hit too close to home for me; I cried and cried at the end of this movie, very powerful. The Dragons are the ones that you can't let go from within ourselves, the dragons are the ones who keep us from moving forward, from forgiving.
5 Stars.

Movie: Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Chimpanzee's are captured and seized from their natural habitat and used as lab rats to find the cure for Alzeimer's then suddenly something goes wrong and all of the Chimpanzee's are killed but not before finding out a baby Chimpanzee who has been born with the drug given by his mother, now dead and Ceaser is now raised by the Doctor who later leads the first EVER Chimpanzee revolution from mankind. This is a great prequal to the original Planet of the Apes movie. I love animals and I can't stand it when animals are being abused. Great movie and I bit off all my nails! Ceasar is home! and E.T went home! I hope there's a sequal to this one, they sure led you to believe that!
5 Ape Stars
