25:20 Planet of the Apes 3979HT

Heston's laundry bill for the first two movies: pretty much zero.

Nice Forbidden Zone effects: flames, cracks in the earth, Taylor vanishing into thin air.

Much more on the antiwar theme this time.

Cornelius does NOT begin as a heroic figure at the war rally. Wimp.

We're all loving that Zira can't really tell the difference between Brent and Taylor. After all, all humans look alike to her.

Apparently Cornelius hitting his wife was essentially OK in 1970, at least in a movie.

I'm surprised you guys haven't commented on the fact that Roddy MacDowall isn't playing Cornelius this time out!

it's funny you should mention that ... we JUST sorted that out before you read this ... special K was under the impression that mcdowall was in 4 of the 5 films and missed this one ... i didn't know and we had to look at the credits after seeing a cornelius go by.
