The Planet of the Apes (1968)
This is the grand of them all. The movie that still rises above and beyond all the incarnations following it. The idea may now look novel, but that's only because back in 1968 this movie thrilled the world. The innovations in make up still stand up to this day. The story (written by Rod Serling) is also filled with speculation, philosophical observation, and a challenge to 60's sensibilities. Add a tiny bit of tongue-in-cheek wit along with stellar performances by most the cast and you have yourself a classic.
Beneath the Planet of the Apes
With the huge success of the first movie a sequel had to be made.Read more ›
1. Planet of the Apes - 5-Film Collection (includes Planet of the Apes; Beneath the Planet of the Apes; Escape from the Planet of the Apes; Conquest of the Planet of the Apes; Battle for the Planet of the Apes)
2. Planet of the Apes - 2001 Tim Burton remake starring Mark Wahlberg
3. Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Each of these movies come with a wide variety of special features and supplements. One of the most notable extras for "Planet of the Apes" are the audio commentaries with the actors, makeup artist John Chambers, and composer Jerry Goldsmith. For those who love the music, included on some of the discs are isolated score tracks (in DTS-HD 5.1). One of the great things about the blu-rays is that you can go behind-the-scenes of the making of the movies. In particular, it's a treat to see the complex makeup work that was used to achieve the look of the apes in the early films (and the visual effects work on "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" is also extremely interesting).
*At this time of this review, this bundle is the Gold Box Deal for $27.49. Amazon's prices change frequently, and in some cases it may be cheaper to buy the movies individually.

|is this one disc with all 3 in collection?||
It's actually 7 films in 3 separate packages with 7 BDs total (plus apparently 1 or 2 DVDs though the description says 7 discs total). The middle package in the picture is actually a 5-BD set containing the original 1968 Charlton Heston film and its four sequels (1970-73) -- apparently the 2011... Read More

See my answer to the other question. The 105 minutes is *just* the 2011 reboot; it's actually three separate packages (one containing the original five 1968-73 films, plus one each for 2001 & 2011).
