Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the most depressing blockbuster movie of the summer. It’s an absolute bummer and I loved every minute of it.
That’s what the Planet of the Apes franchise has always been. They’ve always offered us social commentary on our world, while giving us a nihilistic gut punch in the end. They were always a true bummer.
Spartacus concluded its run with a great season and a superb series finale, that was perfect in every way. Spartacus was a joy to watch over the years. With episodes delivering a solid mix of violence and sex that left viewers fully entertained. The violence and sex is just icing on the cake. At it’s core, Spartacus is a great drama filled with great characters and some of the most memorable lines of dialogue on TV.
