I haven't seen it but it has bullcrap written all over it. I wouldn't have touched it with yours.

I saw it. It was ok, funny enough but like most of the "parody" reboot movies (think Ben Stiller and Starsky and Hutch) are horrible let downs anyway so I went into it with that mind set.

Saw an ad for another apes movie. Really? They're still doing that? Must be some people who like those pieces of poo.

I remember in the first one, poo went down on the golden gate bridge. Then, in every other franchise that year, poo went down on the golden gate bridge.

My guess is, one of the special effects firms did a really bitchin' render of the golden gate bridge, and all the studios poo their pants over it.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

I saw Escape from the Planet of the Apes in the theatre.  It was meh.  The first one, that I subsequently saw on tv, was at least a campy triumph of wacky futurism and anti speciesest screed.  You can't beat Charleston Heston for overacting.  He's a champ.

Since I was young and impressionable, the Statue of Liberty encounter truly blew my mind.

I think William Shatner beats him.

They're neck and neck, for sure.

The Oscar for overacting in a drama - the award goes to .... Jack Nicholson!
The Oscar for overacting in a comedy - the award goes to ... Jim Carrey
The Oscar for overacting in a TV series (fiction) - the award goes to ... James T Kirk/ TJ Hooker/ Denny Crane
The Oscar for overacting in a TV series (reality) - the award goes to ... the presenter of The Apprentice
The Oscar for overacting in a TV commercial - the award goes to ... the NRA spokesman (and sometime ape co-star)
Haven't seen the last 2 but the other 3 are spot on.

You've never seen old orange-faced 45 or "Damn Dirty Apes!"?

Just saw Damn Dirty Apes on YouTube. Yeah, I remember that now. Still can't place orange-faced 45.

Ticker (2001).

That movie is so atrocious that daily I think about how the world didn't need or deserve it. It really should have been shot at birth.
