Movie Critic Review: Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Review: It appears from the way this movie ends that it marks the beginning of a new series of species-exploring kinds of scenarios. But it is a good movie indeed especially if you love computer-generated imagery(CGI).

You get to see a battle between humans and chimps on The Golden Gate Bridge with magnificent scenes and sounds!

The movie, undoubtedly, makes for the weak scenarios that caused the failure of both the 1968 The Planet of the Apes (starring Charlton Heston) and the 2001 version made by director Tim Burton but keeps the same central ideas tackled by its predecessors about mankind and other species.

The story here is a sci-fi tale of scientist testing new drugs on animals. It is told from the view point of the chimps who revolt against humans and human vanity after their leader has his brain developed through the effects of an experimental drug used on his deceased father.

Experimenting with animal brains and artificial intelligence might not be without bad consequences to humanity. I believe the movie is trying to convey this message but mostly it tells about a shared eagerness to freedom and acknowledgement by both mankind and other related species.

The movie uses, in an amazing manner, the technology of computer generated imagery which is good enough for you to see emotions and responses exchanged between man and monkey.

The film is rated excellent and is playing in most movie theatres. It is also available for adding to your library.

  1. Best movie ever! Very realistic if humans keep using animals as a testing field for science. Highly recommend everyone to see this move. 5/5

An Entity Unknown By: Mohamed Hamad- Translated From Arabic

Text by: Mohamed HamadTranslated by: Mustafa Mudathir

There is a tiny mystery;
an entity unknown that hymenates our souls for reasons undisclosed with a plasticine of thinness a sleazy film of boredom to blunt our insistence in dealing with existence. And verily those same songs,  enchanted as they are that ornament affect, the deepest and inmost, are turned to mere phonations that tend to bore at most.
The things you sought with passion are now dispelled around you devoid of early value, or heavily under-rationed. You like it, oh! no more, the stretching on your bed Nor do you like rising and nothing is surprising.
Your cup of tea, whose edges

MovieGlobe: Japan's Version of Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet (2007) JapanOriginal Article by: Fateh Mirghani-Japan

I have just finished watching the masterpiece of Shakespeare” Romeo and Juliet “in its Japanese version.
The quality of the movie is great and the soundtrack, injected with a little Japanese folklore music, has given it a sensational dimension and Eastern fascination!
Basically, the theme of the movie remains the same as the original play, and that has been a particular Japanese notion in dealing with other nations’ cultural products. Part of the reason may lay in Japan's sensitivity to other nations’cultural products- given the long standing historical disputes with its neighbours, and part of it may lay in a fierce sense of homogeneity that has come to characterize Japan as an island nation-state since time immemorial. Thus the Japanese, unlike the Americans, don’t seem to have the temerity to ‘Japanize’ others’ cultural stuff. The movie “Renaissance man”  can be cited as an example of American boldness. The …

Thursday Evening

Short Story by Ali Elmak* Translated by MM
Getting off the tram, he slipped. Was it the right or the left foot that skidded? It did not matter!  All that mattered really, all that he cared for at that hour, at that moment, was that he fell and soiled his pants. those characteristically beautiful white pants which he had preserved for Thursday evenings; for the soiree gatherings which started by hanging around in the market; loitering for short or long periods; then to the cinema house; any film and peace be upon him. Then, was this bad luck or what? Did he really need to take the tram for such a short distance? “That was a fair reward for your laziness” he said to himself. As for those pants, they were turned into a dusty colored thing. The more he shook those tiny particles off, the closer they became attached to the pants. Oh what a gloomy evening for you!  "Is this what concerned you?" thought he.
