FIRST IMPRESSIONS

I used to post full reviews on this site right after seeing movies for the first time, but just found it too damn difficult. I think most will agree that the more times you see a movie, the easier it is to form a concrete opinion. So I've decided to revise my reviews, holding off on full ones until I see the movie multiple times. But, since they say the first impre... read more

A classic

Last year, I have watched all the Star Trek movies and, this year, I have decided to do the same thing with the Planet of the Apes franchise. I’m pretty sure I saw this flick when I was a kid but it was definitely a very long time ago and I had forgotten most of it. What a grand Science-Fiction tale! I actually had a hard time convincing Nick, my step-son, to watch it with me but within 5 minute... read more

Brilliant sci-fi classic...

This is an absolutely brilliant sci fi classic! Planet Of The Apes was released in the same year as 2001: A Space Odyssey and together they have become two of the greatest films of it's genre. Personally, I prefer Planet Of The Apes but I still really like 2001: A Space Odyssey. I find most science fiction films have very effective and shocking endings and twists. Planet Of The Apes has one of tho... read more

Kyle Ellis posted a review 8 months, 2 weeks ago

“This film is absolutely wonderful, much better than the uninspired Tim Burton re-imagining(that saddened me as I like Burton, well his early movies anyway). This though is the real deal, much better told in terms of story, and the script is clever and sly. Planet of the Apes certainly looks good, the special effects and cinematography are excellent for their time, and the ape make up is simply marvellous. And of course the twist ending still delights(and shocks). And I think the acting is good, with Charlton Heston appropriately square jawed in one of his more interesting film roles and as the apes Roddy McDowall and Kim Hunter really do shine. The direction is engaging and focused as well, and the score is terrific. The film may start a little slow, but that is nothing compared to how ped” read more

What I've been watching Jan 22 and a bit before (38 movies items)

"I rarely re- watch films but after seeing a fascinating documentary on youtube about this classic I thought Id see how this film stands the test of time, I had originlly watched this in the 70s or 80s Still largely good. The soundtrack is suitably alien and the ape masks are still great. Possibly the weakest part is the ape buildings which almost look Flinstone-ish. Lost of snippets of humpur in there...and of course it has that iconic ending One of my favourite moments is watching the apes in"

Movies...Most Memorable Movie quotes (43 movies items)

"'Get your stinking paws off me, you damned, dirty ape.'These were the first words ever spoken to an ape by a human in 1968's "Planet of the Apes,” when Charlton Heston's character George Taylor is captured in a net. Today, you might hear it from anyone who feels they're being unjustly persecuted by another person. "

"Re-watch - Dec. 27th I really wanted the kiddo to see Planet of the Apes because it's a great film but also because of its influence over other sci-fi/fantasy films that followed in its wake. She liked it well enough, but clearly wasn't in love with it. I found it amusing that about 20 minutes into it she said something to me that indicated she had figured out what was really going on, though of course I didn't acknowledge whether she was right at that point. Who knows, maybe she will like it m"
