Movie Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

The old saying goes “everything old is new again.” Except when it comes to the summer movie crop of 2014, in which all the retreads, reboots, and remakes seem like those that came before.

This particular cycle of cinema began in 1968 with the original film Planet of the Apes, which spawned four sequels, two TV series, a 2001 remake from director Tim Burton which was less than well-received, then 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which I recall was actually pretty good. Now comes the 2014 Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which is pretty much a casserole of plot points, social commentary, and high-tech action scenes in yet another effort to mine bags of box office coin from a proven commodity.

Hosted by Hari Sreenivasan

The spring 2014 drought in California drove home the danger that societies face when water supplies run low.  But in places such as sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, drought doesn't just put a crimp in a comfortable lifestyle, it is often a cause for war.
