The plane movies were initially planned to be executed in a trilogy form. The first, planes one came in late 2012 and now the fire and rescue is due for release in 2014. The show rotates around the character Dusty crop Hooper, who decides to change his career due to some issues. To be precise, Dusty initially worked in a corn field farm. After some years, he develops some mechanic problems with his engine which turns out to be really nasty.
After some consultations, his is declared unfit by his friend chug .This disadvantage discourages him, since he always dreamt of being an air racer. With shattered dreams, he decides to join the scene of firefighting. Fortunately this time, the moon is on his side, and he emerges successful in his tasks. In the course of time, a fire erupts at Piston Peak National Park. Hereby, they form a team with blade ranger, dipper, wind lifter and cabbie that is dedicated to saving the forest from wild fires. Does he succeed in his mission successfully? Watch out on 18 July 2014!
The film is short comedy with a wonderful story line. Bearing in mind that it lacks vulgar language, it is suitable for family view. Especially for small kids.
The only prior disadvantage to the movie is that it might not provide the expect zeal. Planes 1 one was highly rated but when it was released, it seemed somewhat boring to some. Nevertheless, for the planes 2, only a benefit of doubt is issued. We are yet to view and rate it.
So far few trailers have been released by Disney. From any angle, the film is set to be a big hit based on the funny scenes in it.
“Is the officer recording everything?”
(Policeman still recording that).
In conclusion, the planes 2: Fire and rescue, is a comedy film that is yet to be released. For the trailers, it sets a big platform stage, especially for kids. Have you booked your IMAX ticket?

The movie was schedule for release on 27 June 2014 after being faced with previous delays. About the movie? Well, still the producer Michael bay is on the spot light once again. “Good job”. The script writer, Ehen Kruger, has done an exquisite job too. However, there is no perfect movie, right? Likewise the age of extinction is forced with some cons. In general, most sites and cinema ratings rotate around 3.5 stars, why? Check this out!
The characters in the age of extinction are pretty the same old ones. Except the fact that only new dinobots and autobots have been added. The main characters are:
Mark Elhberg-acts as Cade Yeager’s father.
Stanley Tocei-acting as Joshua Joyce-the head of the K.S.I who initiate building their own transformers.

Sophia Myles-acting as Darcy drill-he is Joshua Joyce’s geologist assistant.
Ling Bingbing- acting as Yue Ming, he is the field leader of the cemetery wind.
T.J .Muller-as Flannery, he is cade’s best friend and a mechanic.
The main autobots are Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Hound, Crosshairs, Drift, Ratchet, Head foot and brains.
The dinobots are the latest characters who have been initiated into the movie. The sad thing is that most of them die, if not all. They are: Lockdown, Galvatron, Stinger, Junk heap and Traxes the Chevrolet.
The story line does not actually continue from where is stopped, no. A new series of invasions have begun.
Firstly, the movie starts by mark Wahlberg meeting an old injured semi-truck friend-Optimus prime who seemed chased. Optimus says that he has been attacked, notably by some humans. He decides to hide him in his backyard garage. Later on, the police come looking for him. “Where is Optimus prime?” obviously, he doesn’t spill the beans. From here, Optimus sends a signal that the remaining transformers on earth must hide since, an agency is after their demise. Just to mention, Optimus feels betrayed by humans since he had helped them win over Megatron and his allies four years back in the battle of Chicago.
However, as some humans are ever great full to Optimus for his help, some are after his engine! Humans have become obsessed with unlocking the cyber-tetrons secrets on earth. With these, a new breed of transformers arrive. In real sense, they are controlled by hungry humans who wanted to take over the world. Unfortunately, things go haywire. New enemies arise from dust. The transformers try to get rid of humans completely, hence the name” Age of extinction”
This time Optimus comes out of hiding and decides to take the battle with his new human friends in fighting the opponents of his kind. Will he succeed?
CONS OF THE MOVIE.
Just like all movies, the age of extinction has a lot of harsh/rude/vulgar words in it. Definitely, not recommended for small children.
Secondly, the movie was clearly predictable on what would happen next. The earth would be re-attacked.
In conclusion, the transformers four, despite its shortcomings, is one of the best movies in the cinemas. For the die-hard fans, it can only get better.
DAWN OF THE PLANET OF APES- MOVIE REVIEW.
Is it possible for a monkey to ride a horse? Well, to be precise a talking monkey, to ride a horse? If you don’t think it’s possible, then you need to watch out for the movie-Dawn of the planet of apes. The film is an American scientific and fictional show based on ape and human rivalry. Additionally, it is a sequel to the ape’s series that was release early in the 21 st century. In 2011, another movie “Rise of the apes” was showcased. Now in 2014, the Dawn of the planet of Apes serves as the final blow to the sky-rocketing ape kingdom and downfall of man. Just to mention, the movie is scheduled to be released on 11 July 2014.
The cast members of the film are quite a bit different from those who starred in the previous ape movies. Below is a list that includes the prolific characters:
The director: Matt Reeves.
Jason Clarke –he is one of the survivors of the simian flu (ALZ-113).
Gary old man-as Direy Fus, he is the leader of the human race that want to kill the apes.
Keri Russell as Ely-she is Malcom’s second wife.
Codi Smits-acts as alexander.
Jocko Sims- as Werer
Kirk Acenedo- acts as Caner.
Kevin Rankin acts as McVeigh
Keri O’Donnell acts as Finney
J.D Evermore acts as sniper.
Andy Serkin- as Ceaser-he is the main leader of the apes.
Judy Greer as Cornelia-she is Caesar’s wife.
Terry Notany-as Rockets, Caesar’s best ally.
Kevin Conoval- as Maurice, ceaser’s lieutenant soldier.
Toby kebbel-as Koba, he is the most ruthless of all apes. He reprimands ceaser of being good to the humans.
Doc Shaw-Acts as Ash rockets.
Dawn of the planet of apes is a movie that exhibits the antagonistic picture between the ape and human society. Each wants to become the dominant species on earth. To begin with, the story line starts when a certain virus, ALZ-113 spreads along the earth. Unfortunately, it was communicable and Incurable. This resulted in the demise of most inhabitants. Luckily apes, were not on the same platform and survived the ordeal. Additionally, the monkeys were on the brink of genetically developing. This served as a big advantage as they became like humans. They had advances in speech, could stand on two feet, hold and handle objects with ease and majorly, had the ability to reason like people.
The movie starts when humans are in an old abandoned building near a forest. On realizing that the humans were here, the apes turned out in numbers for attack. However, ceaser stopped them and a partial deal was achieved. Peace was to be maintained between the two species. After a quick successful deal, one monkey dies in the hands of a human. It was portrayed as murder by the rest of the ape society. “We must rid of humans in revenge”, their lieutenant said. The battle commenced. Ape vs man. From the forest to towns, bloodshed everywhere. Heavy machinery from guns to grenades are used by both races. Despite the killings their two leaders, ceaser and Jason Clarke remain true friends to the end.
The shootouts began early in April in the town of Campbell River, in British Columbia. The island of Vancouver was a favorite since it bordered the equatorial forests. Afterwards, New Orleans was selected as the war-chamber due to the advanced city life and six parks flags.
The movie was selected to prepare the closure of the 36th Moscow film festival.
In conclusion, the film-Dawn of the planet of apes is certainly one of the best movies yet to come. From the 3D graphics to the story line. Clearly it deserves a 4.5 star rating, or what do you think?
