Movies 2014: Why You Should Be Excited for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

The new Planet of the Apes franchise returns in 2014, and once again, humans are not the stars of the show.

And that's a good thing. We need to be reminded sometimes that civilization is one good plague away from ruin. Everyone knows that humanity can destroy itself, but people often forget that humanity is made up of fragile sacks of skin that can be destroyed by damn near everything else on this planet.

So enjoy the story of Caesar and of apes versus humans. Marvel at the technological advances in acting and storytelling. Celebrate that science fiction doesn't completely suck anymore.

Just remember the truth the movie is speaking the next time you go to the zoo. Don't taunt the animals. You never know if the greatest ape that ever lived is planning the rebellion right in front of you.
