    The genetically enhanced apes from the previous film "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" inherit a post-apocalyptic San Francisco in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes."

For fans of the original films this is the "Planet of the Apes" movie you've been waiting for. For every other theater-goer it's an unrelenting action spectacle that grips you visually and emotionally from minute one.

In the last "Planet of the Apes" film, a virus unleashed a super species of highly intelligent apes nearly wiping out humankind in the process and that's where we pick up 10 years later in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes."

Actor Andy Serkis makes you sympathize with a virtual animal in a way you never thought was possible. He's also the actor that brought King Kong and Gollum to life.

"The Americans" star Keri Russell fights for the human resistance, alongside "The Dark Night" star Gary Oldman and "Zero Dark Thirty" actor Jason Clarke.

While they're all rock-solid performers, the apes are definitely more fun to watch, even if an animal riding another animal and firing a machine gun looks quite ridiculous.

    New York's smallest piece of private land

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
