Video Reviews: Dawn of Apes! Planes! Deliver Us From Evil! Earth to Echo!

Monday, July 21, 2014 8:30 AM Comments (3)

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes continues to dominate the U.S. box office, while Disney’s Planes: Fire & Rescue, like the live-action sci-fi family film Earth to Echo, barely took off. In addition to the 60-second reviews of all these films below, David and I review Dawn and Planes as well as and the musical drama Begin Again in our latest episode of “Reel Faith.” (Find out where and when to watch Reel Faith — and check out our new website.)
