War for the Planet of the Apes — A solid post apocalypse movie — 7*/10

For a flick with "War" in its title, there isn't much of it or action for that matter. However, like its two predecessors, in this reboot there is a strong sense of finality to it, strong emotional perspectives, as well as dirty, raw animosity, so you could say this is a proud continuation in the name of this franchise and I would agree.

The only thing I didn't like is that they introduced a comic relief element that clashes too strongly with this film and the two previous. Beyond that, great acting, solid special effects and powerful camera shots will entertain you without any issue.

Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn and Judy Greer.

Spider-Man: Homecoming — A solid reboot of the franchise — 8*/10

The whole Happy-Stark-Parker thing is a bit annoying. The story is pretty involved with lots of stuff happening, but low-key for a superhero flick, at least we didn't go through the origin once more. Good action and special effects if, again, low-key. Overall, nice feeling to it and solid entertainment, one of the good Spider-Man. Watch out for those scenes during the end credits and after.

At first, I wasn't happy about the choice of actor for Spidey when I found out in the Avengers, but now I think he's great, perfect even. The perfect balance of humble, witty and courageous. Loved the choice of aunt May. Nice change there.

One very bad thing, though: no spider sense at all!

Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr.,

Transformers: The Last Knight — On the level with the rest — 6*/10

If you want to see the Transformers, you'll be served. Michael Bay kept it on the level. However, I don't like it when the rewrite "history" and make it all about the Transformers. It's even worst when they rewrite the movie history. That being said, it's fun and entertaining.

Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock, Anthony Hopkins, Josh Duhamel, Stanley Tucci and John Turturro.

Baby Driver — Solid car action flick — 8*/10

It's a movie for car chase lovers. Great tempo, tight action, well built nicely acted characters (if simple), good visuals, delicious dialogs, and very interesting story (if not complex).

Ansel Elgort, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm, Eiza González, Lily James, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx.
