At 13:32 you can see Svengoolie signing autographs.
Why you gotta be so hard on Dick, huh?
so Silence of the Lambs is passable, because you only care about Hannibal, and he’s in 17 minutes, out of 100-ish
Tell me, how does cynicism feel, good sir?
John Lithgow is a genius! Gave me nightmares after Dexter season 4 and still made me cry like a baby over his disease in this movie. That´s gotta be talent..
that guy from the thidh rock looks like a serial killer. I would imagine,that if he would be a such a monster, they would call him the TRINITY. It’s a good example that when you cast people, you don’t have to cast people based on “how they look” but how good actors are they. In Dexter, the “thidth rock dude” was amazing as I always though that he’d be a funnyguy or some super villain from cliffhanger…me bes drunk so me opinion is messy,
Because there’s a lot more to a movie than a good performance. You can have a great performance in an utterly shitty movie. It happens, and not all that rarely.
Thank god they broke that damn vase.
fuck off its their review not yours
For your information, kind sir: Planet of the Apes was based on a French novel titled La Planète des singes, published originally in 1963. It was written by the same Frenchman who wrote The Bridge Over the River Kwai. Author and Frenchman Pierre Boulle is not known for being a stoner.
Wait, Joe Dante? Didn’t he make Small Soldiers, the movie that made Andy Dick murder Phil Hartman?
I was thinking of that same article, and I was gonna post it. Cracked is the best website to ever exist.
To be fair, the people who know that probably sum up to the number of 10 in all the planet, so…
It’s not a prequel, it’s in fact a reboot. Or at least so it says on the Wikipedia page. There are plenty of nods to the original Charlton Heston movie, but still…
‘Sorry, we’re unable to play this episode.’ WHATS GOING ON I CANT WATCH ANYTHING!?
“I think he might be a sex pervert” as opposed to what other kind of pervert?
Those interviews were excellent, as opposed to incredibly awkward like I was expecting.
“Who the hell cares if you call it a sequel, prequel, reboot, reimagining, readaptation, reshoot, or whatever. It’s got a name that people recognize.”
– Every Hollywood studio exec
Like Rich Evans said once:
” “It says Star Wars! Here’s my money!” or “It says Spider-Man! Here’s my money!” “
It says Planet Of The Apes! Here’s my monkey!
Take your stinking paws of my monkey, you damn dirty exec!
Yeah, that word basically means someone who twists something for their own personal benefit.
Did anyone else notice the ghost thing that flashes up at 20:34?
I like the jungly music in the episode. Appropriate and nice to listen to. Reminds me of playing Civilization 3.
The grin on Mike’s face after he smashes the vase is priceless.
The message in the movie is terrible: Science and humans are bad, nature is good. What philosophical tripe.
Not all the humans in the movie are bad. Obviously some of them have to be bad or there wouldn’t be a story.
The idea that this movie is simply pro-nature and anti-science is absurd, because science is what empowers the apes to fight for their freedom.
Don’t forget that other time he lived with a sentient apeish forest dweller trying to assimilate to human society…
Bingo. This goes doubly so for the sequel where we see good and bad humans AND apes. It’s amazing how much subtlety was used in a movie about a super-intelligent chimpanzee.
Take stock of the humans in this movie:
• Draco Malfoy – A vindictive miscreant.
• Various, stereotypical greedy middle-managers and clueless corporate boardroom members.
• James Franco, who through his incompetence causes the entire downfall of mankind.
• James Franco’s dad from 3rd rock, arguably the most innocent character as he’s a victim of a terrifying disease.
It’s tripe. Watch Plinkett’s review of AVATAR and his point about how the Na’Vi are designed to be utterly faultless and sympathetic contrasted against the paper-thin stereotypes of the military and corporate overlords. It’s the same deal with this movie. This movie, like Avatar, asserts (wrongly) that all humans are bad, incompetent or irresponsible with science.
Edit: for what it’s worth, the sequel to this movie is much, MUCH better because it sticks to a plot driven directly by character-motives instead of getting preachy.
I must be one of the few that likes Silence of the Lambs more because of Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling than because of Hopkins as Lecter. Buffalo Bill is pretty awesome in it too.
I thought ROTPOTA was okay, James Franco was indeed a nonentity and the movie could’ve been smarter but the movie is essentially engaging and has some good moments I have to admit though that as a whole it wasn’t very memorable, just adequate.
I wish they would do more Con videos in the future, this one was hilarious “it was great to meet some of the fan”
It makes me cry that Robert Picardo doesn’t know what a Dalek is.
” At first I thought, ‘Oh no. It’s… this.’ ”
I remember the first time I saw this episode, the vase was behind them and I thought: “Oh my God, that fucking vase again, I bet they’re going to keep that in there without ever talking about it forever just to screw with fans.”
And then Mike just hit it. I laughed so hard someone came inside thinking I had accidentally hit myself with something.
Oh my gawwwwd what was that brown spooky ghost at the end?
