Re: Rise of the Planet of the Apes - Blu-Ray Review

maybe I was thinking too much about the original series, but story wise I was not impressed, it felt to be to be carried along on the strengths of the CGI, which I found very good btw. I'm rather middle of the road on this one I suppose but, put it this way, I will not be taking time to watch it again.

I watched this and thought it was a good movie. I always tend to like the prequils when they explain the origing of movies that have already been released. I thought the sound quality was excellent. I would definitely watch this one again. My wife would tend to disagree with me though.

My dad used to be huge Planets of the Apes fan, so I low expectations for this movie compared to the one that came out in 2001. But... I agree with everything you said, cheesy lines and all! It's about time we saw a somewhat intelligent approach to the sci-fi movie world. The picture and sound was definitely agreeable with my HT!

I've just added this movie to my "to-watch" list. I am a fan of the original Planet of the Apes. I also like Frieda Pinto.

It's very different from the original planet of the apes movies, but quite good nonetheless.

Re: Rise of the Planet of the Apes - Blu-ray Review

I finally watched this movie and quite enjoyed it. I've seen the original Charlton Heston, but not the 2001 remake. So, this particular movie is a REBOOT. If you discount the originals, and don't look for a continuity, then it is most enjoyable. I had to look up the word REBOOT.

- which according to wikipedia:
In serial fiction, to reboot means to discard much or even all previous continuity in the series and start anew with fresh ideas. Effectively, the writer(s) declare all established fictive history to be irrelevant to the new storyline, and start the series over as if brand-new.
