Planet of the Apes

I just got back from the premiere of Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes. Reviews pour in from across the country: "The most anticipated movie of the year." "A rouser, a screaming-banshee fun house." "When it's good, it comes close to being great." I have 3 words: "Rent the original." Besides its far under par special effects and poorly written plot that could have been written by primates themselves, the movie was not anywhere near as entertaining as the original. Parts of the movie made absolutely no sense and seemed to come from nowhere. As with most sci fi, you don't ask questions, you just go with it. But this is just rediculous. I think we've learned that nothing beats Charlton Heston running around in a loin cloth.
