The Angry Birds Movie (2016, dir. Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly)

Misfit birds have to channel their anger to rescue the eggs stolen from their village by piratical pigs. Unexpectedly superior animated comedy packing in buckets of slapstick, porky puns, and a little pathos into an engaging 90 minutes of game-based fun.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014, dir. Matt Reeves)

Ten years after the events of Rise, apes and humans come into contact with each other. Superior monkey military parable fun, with hawks and doves in human and ape camps alike, arguing for armageddon and peace respectively. Inevitably, though, war erupts.
