I'm not exactly sure how it happened but I found myself watching Dawn of Planet of the Apes. Even odder: I enjoyed it! Very much in fact. I kept trying to feel superior to it, but the truth is I was very drawn into the action and the conflicts. The only thing I didn't like was the unnecessary but thankfully slight development of the emotional story line between some of the humans. Of course I was rooting for Caesar and his family the whole time.
