27:20 Planet of the Apes (2001) 5021HT

Dynamic range on modern DVDs is actually a problem when you're in a less-than-perfect acoustic environment. It's hard to hear Helena Bonham Carter or the hissing ape dude when they're acting very quietly.

An early impression is that there are a lot of characters to keep track of. This might be a reflection of my tiredness. But it might also be true.

It's amazing how much better the makeup got in 30 years. But the acting did not get better.

Things the spaceship looks like:

- a whistle
- a hair dryer
- the wings on the Golden Age Flash's helmet

Ape City reminds of elf villages in Lord of the Rings.

I'm a little confused, and my firewall of not-tired is slipping. Good thing I'll have 3 more chances to figure it out.

Nice pointy red hats on the chaser apes.
