Planet of the Apes

Planet of the Apes ★★★

This was… fine. Nowhere near as good as the original ones (other than #5- anything is better than that). The original Ape movies felt like they all had something important to say, and this just felt like a random collection of scenes haphazardly pieced together. No theme or point whatsoever. Also, relegating Pericles to only the beginning and end felt like a mistake. This was HIS movie. Everyone else was just lucky to be there.
