I remember when nick at night started.

Lancelot I think usually came on after laugh-in and right before doby gillis.


Loved that show

The best thing about the new Planet of the Apes movie is that if you don't like it, it's perfectly acceptable to throw your poop at the screen.

Same with Transformers 4.

So is the next movie going to be called Day of the Planet of the Apes?

/Followed by Twilight of the Planet of the Apes

After Day of the Planet of the Apes is Land of the Planet of the Apes then Diary of the Planet of the Apes.


Finally saw Rise the other day.  I had skipped it for a while because of the bad taste of the Burton Apes film.  Rise was surprisingly good.  I'm going to have to check out Dawn sometime soon.  I wonder if they keep the series going for another movie or two, if they'll revisit the disappeared Mars craft that was mentioned in Rise.  Or if that was just a fun easter egg with no intention of paying it off.

The spacecraft mentioned was the one Taylor & Co. crashed in, I believe. So it's a direct tie-in to the original movie.

I get that.  That's why I'm not sure if it's just an easter egg, or if they might want to actually use it later.  If they have another sequel that's set some time after there's only apes left and no intelligent humans at all, it would be a way to introduce a few humans for the movie.

"A couple of people said very clearly, 'Are you sure they should watch this movie, won't they learn to take over the world?,'" said Myrtle Beach Safari Owner Bhagavan Antle, according to the U.K.'s The Daily Mail. "There were several people actually concerned about that."

Yeah, nobody bothered to explain what facetious means to this dude, obviously. Jesus, just because they don't wink and nod, it doesn't mean that they aren't joking with you.

Unless I'm supposed to believe that subby truly believes that this will give the chimps "ideas" as well.

The Burton one wasn't that horrid. People need to relax a little.

As for the story, you should try and get ahold of the book, I got it in a box full of books a buddy gave to me years ago, it's a great read, and not horribly long.

And "That Bit Of The Day When You're Wandering Around, Thinking About What To Do Because It's Too Late For Day-Time Stuff, And Too Early For Night-Time Things, Let's Call It About 4pm, Of The Apes"

Damn.  I've been mishearing the title this whole time.
I thought it was "Don,  of the Planet of the Apes"....

Imagine the Middle-Earth crossover, "Elevensies of the Planet of the Apes".

Let me know when production begins on "Stop the Planet of the Apes: I Wanna Get Off"

Let's just agree to disagree on that one. I thought it was a mess and the ending made zero sense.

I have considered giving the book a shot for a while. Maybe I'll go ahead and track a copy down.

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Planet of the Apes

I'm not some peta freak but does anyone else find this kind of farked up? Theater food is shiat for humans, I imagine it's worse for these apes. And they were probably scared if they really did sit through the whole film.

/lighten up, Francis
//may go see it this weekend
///chimps were better behaved than kids

So, which one of the apes is named Dawn?

"Yo Dawg, I Heard You Like Apes..." would also work.

Bad monkey! Sorry mam, when I get that monkey home, I'll spank him!

Dawn comes before sunrise, but Rise of the apes was before Dawn of the apes, so the titles are going backwards in time while the stories are going forward.  Who'd they put in charge of continuity? Some pre-smartened feces-flinging damn-dirty ape?

Kind of inappropriate movie to take a couple of 2-year olds too. Yeah, I know that the adults are too dangerous for a publicity stunt like this, but still bad parenting/guardianship/etc.
 
2014-07-16 09:58:10 AM  
Not sure why it's got the "stupid" tag. Does subby think that if he hints he's got a sense of fun that we won't think he's cool?
