It’s been over 30 years since James Cameron’s The Terminator debuted and now comes the fifth installment in the Terminator franchise: Terminator Genisys. When The Terminator hit theatres in 1984, it changed the way audiences viewed science fiction films, cyborgs and most importantly how powerful a line of dialogue can be (i.e. “I’ll be back.”) […]

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Review: Starring Jason Clarke, Andy Serkis & Keri Russell

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the first film of the year with significant sci-fi and CGI achievement. It’s hard to believe these apes are not real and instead actors are behind the CGI characters. Using motion capture suits and cameras that capture the facial expressions of the actor, animals have never looked […]
