Recently, every evening, Nick, my step-son, asked me when we will watch the Planet of Apes again. He is pretty hooked and, especially this time, I was sharing his enthusiasm. Indeed, at the end of the previous installment, [spoiler] Charlton Heston himself launched a doomsday bomb destroying Earth. Heston thought he managed to put an end to the sequels but the producers obviously outsmarted him.[/... read more

I love how cheesy this seems compared to today's movies, and the fact that the outdated aspects of the movie (giving a pregnant woman alcohol, for example), do not take away any of the enjoyment of this movie, the third in the Planet of the Apes franchise. Cornelius and Zira grow on you through each successive movie, and you want to see them live...

This movie also has a younger Eric... read more

The world is shocked by the appearance of two talking chimpanzees, who arrived mysteriously in a U.S. spacecraft. They become the toast of society; but one man believes them to be a threat to the human race.

" Year: 1973 What it predicted: Maan. Here we go. So apes became super-intelligent in the future and time travel back to 1973 where they become instant celebrities. In later parts they would go on to start wars and all sorts of crazy stuff. What happened: Well, I can't be sure, but I'm guessing apes remained apes instead of super-apes. Accuracy: Zeroh."

"19.1. Kolmannessa apinaplaneetassa raiskataan jo ensimmäistä - ja jopa toista - osaa melko rankasti. Ensimmäisen osan message tuli siitä, että ihminen tuhoaa itse itsensä, ja tässä pohjustetaan sitten ihmiset vastaan apinat -sotaa. Seuraavat osat taitavat sitten olla pelkästään tuota sotimista, joten tämä taitaa olla se käännekohta sarjassa, että välttämättä edes minä en pysty sulattamaan enempää. Tästä huolimatta kolmas osa on vielä ihan helvetin hauska, koska sen al"

" The Ups: It may not be logic that the Apes would manage to take a shuttle and travel back in time, but at least it manage to make sense of making a sequel after the ending of film 2. The apes become the heroes. Much humor. The Downs: Poor Zira. She believed so in man and this is what became your destiny? It makes a lump in the throat and another downbeat ending in the Apes-saga."

Indeed, at the end of the previous installment, Charlton Heston himself launched a doomsday bomb destroying Earth. Heston thought he managed to put an end to the sequels but the producers obviously outsmarted him. So, how did they do it? Time travel of course! Indeed, if Taylor and Brent managed to go in the future, why not send a few apes back in time? It was a pretty neat idea and something really different from the two previous installments even if you miss the whole Ape civi” read more
