Matt Reeves got all the glory for the rebooted Planet of the Apes movies, which pushed the boundaries for what a genre film about talking apes could accomplish. But nestled alongside Reeves’ masterful Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes was Rise of the Planet of the Apes, a morally complex blockbuster directed by Rupert Wyatt.

BlacKkKlansman Clips

Alongside the giant shark swimming into theaters this weekend in the form of The Meg, director Spike Lee is coming back to the big screen with what many have called his best and most accessible film in over a decade (though our own review finds the film to be a little clumsy while also enjoyable and outrageous).

BlacKkKlansman follows the real life exploits of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. But that’s not his crowning achievement. Stallworth set out to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s by going undercover in the racist organization.
