    This was less cliched than I expected. I enjoyed the redemption theme and the young woman growing into her own power. Thoroughly enjoyable with fun music and scenes from NYC,which always evokes good memories.

    I enjoyed the pace, style and theme of BEGIN AGAIN. A music themed movie will always be a hit with me. My only criticism is that the character DAVE KOHL is too close the name DAVE GROHL.

    A very enjoyable movie, well acted and filmed with great skill. While not a summer block buster type of flix, the multi- level plot and sub- plots were believable and mostly well portrayed.

    I went with my husband & son to see this movie, and it is the best movie we have seen all year thus far. The make up, theme, acting, editing, producing, directing all came to together in such unison that is made the entire movie completely entertaining from beginning to end. Even if your not a fan of the Planet Of The Apes Series this is truly a movie done extremely well. One sad fact is that it correctly, but indirectly points out is one of the many evils done by man against our innocent wildlife and animals in general for research and inhumane experiments. On the other hand it also shows the good side of humans who fight to protect and preserve these magnificent creatures given to us as a blessing from God. I believe the movie also points to the fact that we all need to be humanitarians whether it be to animals or the human race. If this movie doesn't win some Oscars I will find it very fishy indeed.

    I am planning to go see PLANET OF THE APES on Thursday. Regal gives you 5 extra points on Thursdays. It looks like the movie starts at 11am. That is Wednesdays show time, Thursday is not showing as of me writing this because the website is showing PLANES, SEX TAPE AND THE PURGE starting Thursday night. So if anyone would like to join me on Thursday for the first showing of PLANET OF THE APES (not in 3D) feel free to show up and have some fun.

    Well..the decision has been made for me. I need to be in Corona at 1. With the start and duration time of the movie not doable...unless...someone has a super sonic bi-locator device I could borrow. Lol

    See you next time.:)

    Once again, I'm the one going against the grain. I better change my ways or you guys will leave me out of the picture and forget to invite me to lunch again.

    Even though I'm not going to see the movie the group chose is it okay for me to make a comment on a movie the group didn't chose?

  • Joanne

    Okay. I'll be good. I choose Begin Again too! (I love you guys!)

  • Gretchen

    Begin Again is my choice. I don't need a lot of fighting this soon after Transformers.

    Robin said, "Anything but Planet of the Apes." This is going to far for me as I have seen several of the Ape series over the decades. However, I'll go for the Musical Drama of Begin Again.

      I liked the first one and even the Mark Wahlberg one but this one doesn't sound that great to me.

  • Susan D.
