[Insert Ape Pun Here] Kloipy has seen Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ kicks off with a rousing hunt scene. Instead of the apes chasing down humans, we are treated to a nearly wordless 10 minutes sequence in which the apes in formation, stalk and take down some elk and nearly escape a bear attack. Though the hunt turns into chaos it is also apparent that the apes had continued to evolve from ‘Rise’ by the fact that they have now established hunting tools, some wearing war paint, some riding horses, and a colony in between the giant redwoods. This society has families, a sort of school, some laws that they have put together, and at the top of the chain stands Caesar. He has taken the leader position and rules it well. Read More…

Kloipy’s Stephen King Series: Creepshow

Creepshow is everything that a good horror movie should be. To me, it is a flawless film. It manages to be scary, funny, and entertaining from start to finish. When I think of horror, the most prevelant thing that comes to mind are EC Comics.

Creepshow manages to catch this exact tone so perfectly that it has become one of my most loved horror films of all time. Read More…

Kloipy’s Stephen King Series: Stand by Me

I was lucky enough to grow up in the time before the internet. I lived surrounded by forests and mountains. Each day growing up was a day spent exploring. Each discovery felt important, each step filled with the importance that childhood can bring to it. The days seemed as long as my shadow on the grass at noon. And at night, with the windows open, I’d listen to the songs of the crickets, the sweet whisper of the wind through the fields, and I count the stars until I fell asleep. TV at the time wasn’t important, it was my friends, and the tantalizing thought of what lay beyond that next hill. Read More…

Kloipy’s Documentary Series: Lake of Fire

Tony Kaye’s ‘Lake of Fire’ is shot in black and white, which is ironic because the subject matter is shown in those terms but the message tells you that it can only be gray. The subject is abortion. I think they should show this movie in every Planned Parenthood and Birthright across America. A discussion of the topic can’t be truly had unless you see both sides, and that’s what Kaye’s film does.
