Planet Of The Apes (2001)

Hello Bitchin' Followers!

So it's January 4th, 4 days into the new year! Lets hope its going well for everyone so far! Now i had a couple of hours spare this morning and i noticed that Planet of The Apes was about to start on the movie channel and because i watched the newer 'The Rise of The Planet of The Apes', i thought it would be interesting to watch the prequels sequel! 


To start off, I've seen this movie before but it was so long ago, i couldn't remember much of what actually happened in the movie although i knew the basics. 

The film itself i would rate a 6/10. It was nowhere near as good as what i remembered and left many unanswered questions linked to the prequel that was released late last year. Now im not a huge Planet of The Apes fan and i know there has been many more films in this franchise than the 2001 and 2011 films but at the moment im not too convinced about watching them.

What did you guys think of Planet of The Apes (2001) and The Rise of The Planet of The Apes (2011)? Should i watch the other movies and will they explain many of the holes left in the story?

  1. It`s been quite a long time since I saw Planet of the Apes. I must have been 10 or 11 back then. But I do remember finding it pretty good.
    I haven`t seen the sequel yet.

  6. The 6/10 is fair. I was rather disapointed in it and I'm a big Tim Burrton fan and appreciator of the Planet of the Apes Films. The new one was pretty enjoyable.
    The first one is fucking awesome. It's pretty dated so to be able to enjoy it you'll have to be able to appreciate how original it was at the time and how influential it is. Rod Serling is a genius. So it's worth a shot.

  9. I mostly remember being generally uninterested with the recent Apes flicks... I liked the old ones though because they were ridiculous

  21. thought it was a great prequel and there seems to be a sea of them at the moment but this one stands out!

  22. I really liked that film when I first watched it. Probably because it was so much better than the original Planet of the Apes one with Charlton Heston in it, which really sucked because he is such a lousy actor.
