Planet of the Apes

Planet of the Apes (1968) and Mean Machine

In this hodgepodge of an episode, Sean and Roy each chose a random film that the rest of us had not seen. You read that correctly, many of us were watching the original Planet of the Apes for the first time. Oddly, both of these film have been remade or are remakes several times over. Not so oddly, only one of them really stands the test of time. I think you  can probably guess which one. 




War for the Planet of the Apes

When I first heard about Rise of the Planet of the Apes years ago, I never would have imagined that it would be the beginning of one of the strongest franchises around. Can the latest film from Matt Reeves follow in the footsteps of Rise and Dawn? Is this the performance that finally gets Andy Serkis an oscar nomination? Why does a movie like 12 Feet Deep exist, and why did Drew watch it? So many burning questions. I guess you just need to listen to find out the answers.
