S8: Episode 2: Planet of the Apes (2001)

August 16, 2019

Tim Burton’s “Planet of the Apes” continues this season of remakes, reboots and re-imaginations as Mark Wahlberg battles Tim Roth for the affection of Helena Bonham Carter in the time traveling, semian, sci-fi caper from 2001.

Paul Giamatti shows up to trade slaves and sell drugs. Michael Clarke Duncan and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa are friends who become enemies, only to become enemies who become friends.

Rick Baker ups his game from our last episode and delivers some outstanding ape costumes. But alas, the movie kind of stinks. Bad for them, for for you and me. Join us for this episode as we travel to the “Planet of the Apes”. Not that one, this one.
