Planet Of The Apes (Bonus Episode)

August 5th, 2017

Dr. Zaius! Dr. Zaius! That's right folks bonus level episode time this week and we're doing the 1968 Planet of the Apes film suggested by Brent! 

The movie stars Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall and directed by Franklin J. Schaffner. The movie stars Heston as George Taylor who after a snafu of a space exploration mission him and his crew end up on a planet that is ran by apes. Taylor is captured by the apes and imprisoned but once he re gains his speech after being shot in the throat he tries to explain to them where he is from...however the apes are not having any of it due to being so set in their ways.

It's a great film in so many ways. From the acting and makeup all the way down to the set design. There are many underlying tones and messages of this movie and this is one of the many reasons that makes the movie so great and why it's stood the test of time. 

I diegress, so take your stinking paws off of whatever you're doing you damned dirty apes and go listen to this episode!
