I’m trembling right now…shivering…after watching this new official trailer for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. This is some undreamed of awesomeness right here, kids: apes on horseback, Ceasar speaking, the apes building a comminuty and a sense of family – and Gary Oldman trying to rally humanity to rip it all away in a mad quest for revenge and survival. Holy shit. It’s haunting and epic and cool and it just shot up to about equal status with Guardians Of The Galaxy for my number one most anticipated film of summer 2014. Just wow!
Jeff is the defining voice of his generation. Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.
