It's not like these are bad, but they're just the definition of bland and forgettable, milquetoast filmmaking; tailor-made for redditors to make gay youtube videos about how these are underrated thought-provoking masterpieces or something, when in actuality they have the themes and complexity of a college freshman's essay.
And also the cautionary tale of why you should never over-rely on cgi - the first film aged like milk and looks like pure dogshit now, and while the newer films may still look impressive, they will follow the same fate eventually.

    Rise and Dawn are both solid sci-fi movies, with Dawn being a legitimately excellent entry into the genre. Nobody's going to defend War as cinema but hey for the third movie in a trilogy it does pretty well for itself.

    These movies are actually great and they keep getting made because A. people like them and B. they're relatively cheap for sci-fi blockbusters. Matt Reeves' skill at efficiently shooting these movies well within a reasonable budget is why he was allowed to make the most recent Batman movie.

      This is just dumb, what the frick does this even mean. You definitely just saw that it was widely liked and because you hate joy have to reflexively be contrarian about everything. Your word choice of “milquetoast” and “college freshman essay” also out you as a pseud.

    I don't get these movies and why they continue to be made. Maybe I just don't like looking at monkeys. Every time I see them on TBS or whatever they aren't bad, just basic action type modern movies. Who sees these movies?

      They genuinely got some great character writing to them. Action takes a pretty big back seat as well for most of the run time so I have no idea what you're on about. Caesar has had one the best character arcs in the last two decades in cinema. That should tell you something.

        Caesar's narrative arc is Moses and then Jesus

        I guess its just hard to take seriously when a bunch of monkeys are walking around acting human. One was on the other day on TBS or whatever and I saw a chimp push a chopper off a bridge acting like he was bad ass or something. It was just stupid.
