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I love how cheesy this seems compared to today's movies, and the fact that the outdated aspects of the movie (giving a pregnant woman alcohol, for example), do not take away any of the enjoyment of this movie, the third in the Planet of the Apes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

"First viewing - Jan. 12th Apes Wednesdays I was pleasantly surprised how well this film was crafted in the wake of its predecessor. It takes the original story idea & flips it on its head, then uses the premise to explore how humans treat things they fear mixed with the arc of celebrity. The cast is fantastic, & I was mildly amused to see a certain soap opera actor in a prominent role. This time around they do a better job of exploring & fleshing out the characters, especially with regard to th"

"Three future-apes — Cornelius (Roddy McDowall), Zira (Kim Hunter), and Dr. Milo (Sal Mineo) — fly back through the same time-warp that brought astronauts to their Earth in the first Planet of the Apes. They land in 1973, where they’re treated first as curiosities, then as celebrities, and finally, as public enemies. The simple premise-flip doesn’t just retool the series and bring new energy to the franchise; it gives director Don Taylor a chance to introduce some striking new imagery, pl"

The future kind of sucks. (421 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: Apes from the Planet of the Apes, arrive on Earth, and end being experimented on, they also discover the horror that is "disco." Year it takes place: 1973"
