A Little Bit of Heaven is an eye opening, emotional roller coaster of a film opening this weekend against The Avengers.

"Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" on the surface appears to be a "throw away" summer film, a haphazardly thrown together money grab, grasping at nostalgia for its acclaimed predecessor.  Much like its storied roots, however the film will shock and awe with it's stunning plot twits and revelations only adding to the mytho...
