Every day as we count down to the 87th Academy Awards I will take a look at one of the films that has been nominated. 21 days remain until the Oscars air on ABC50 so today I watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has been nominated for the Academy Award for its Visual Effects. Ten years after a pandemic disease, apes who have survived it are drawn into battle with a group of human survivors. This is the sequel to the 2011 film Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. The visual effects are amazing, Caesar and all of the other apes in the film look photo realistic. While I can not help but find this movie completely ridiculous I did enjoy it and was toughly impressed by the special effects. 

As always, don’t forget to tune in on Sunday, February 22nd at 7pm to ABC50 and watch Neil Patrick Harris host the 87th Academy Awards.
