The WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES (and moviegoers’ attention) took many prisoners/fans this weekend, as the “humans” united for an all-out warfare. Feeling a bit conflicted by his demotion to a slightly-less profitable locale, SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING remained a welcomed addition to the cinematic neighborhood while the unfriendly DESPICABLE ME: 3 was still despicably delightful. The BABY DRIVER kept to his own successful lane while THE BIG SICK left moviegoers queasy but quite entertained.
As the Summer of 2017 sped by, the neighborhood remained friendly despite that whole humans-versus-apes war occurring throughout the movie planet. On earthly terrain, animation continued to be a crowd pleaser as the getaway to a successful vacation for the older crowd led to a sickeningly entertaining stopover.
