It’s been 20 years since the remake and 10 since the reboot, so what better time to dive back into the Apes franchise than now? We already covered the remake way back in episode 2, but now we’re finally taking on the original. It’s 1968’s Planet of the Apes - a movie that seems to be ironically making a statement that’s the complete opposite of its intentions. Does this classic sci-fi adventure film hold up? Tune in to find out. Other topics of discussion include Nathan’s immaculate recounting of the sequels, the concept of a “dad movie”, lower jaw acting, and much much more. So get your stinkin’ paws on this episode, you damn dirty listener!
Planet of the Apes (1968) stars Roddy McDowall, Maurice Evans, Charlton Heston, Linda Harrison, and Kim Hunter. Directed by Franklin J. Schaffner.
