Planet of the Apes (1968)

monkeyrating: 7/10
#Even though panda wrote this, one cannot miss the pun of this movie being rated by the monkey

genre: adventure drama mystery

waddabout: A team of astronauts travel ahead in time and crash land on a bizarre planet where speaking apes are the dominant species and man is the mute animal hunted and kept in cages!

isay: This is one of Charlton Heston’s most famous movies! the ending twist is EPIC! and his last lines in the movie have been voted as the 66th best movie quote ever!!! more than enough reasons to not miss out on this one!

pandarespect to: The makeup department deserves great respect for giving a decent monkey getup to all the actors. That is what sells the movie to the audience.
After the 2001 remake the monkey makeup might seem a bit lame to the younger viewers but back in the 60’s it was the best makeup job anyone had ever done. The script is tightly ploted, though the movie is slow at times lee way has to be given for its age. In the 60’s this was a very fast paced movie!

#The 2001 remake is much faster and tightly narrated since it’s from our era.

trivia note: Though it wasn’t initially planned The franchise was a HUGE success and has since sprouted 4 sequels, one remake (in 2001) and a Reboot (in 2011) which is yet to be released starring james franco and frieda pinto with the beast being played by andy “king kong/Gollum” serkis.
