Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, 2014 - ★★★★

Who'd have thought that one of the biggest films of the year would be a largely subtitled, Shakespearian tragedy about a rebel uprising and the futility of war (with CGI Apes).

Nice to see Andy Serkis getting the top billing for a great performance. The effects work better than Rise because it's mostly the apes world so they never look out of place. Godzilla may be more of a roller coaster ride but this is likely to be the smartest mainstream film of the year.
