The next morning, that same television station would play all of these original movies and my dad and I would spend almost the entire day watching them. Up until now, I have not been able to watch them because I do not have cable. Now that I have been able to get this entire collection on DVD I am resuming this tradition in my own house with my own children. I know it's kind of funny to get sentimental about movies with apes and humans killing each other, but these movies are special to me. And I can't believe what a wonderful deal this was.
It is worth noting for fans that "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes" and "Battle for the Planet of the Apes" are presented here in both theatrical and unrated versions. The unrated versions are improvements upon the theatrical versions, immensely so in the case of "Battle". These unrated versions are also more violent than the theatrical versions, so if you have children, the theatrical versions may be preferred.
My only gripe regarding this release is that the picture quality is not as pristine as it could be, given the technology of blu-ray. There are occasional age related artifacts visible, especially in the sequels, but the picture quality is certainly no worse than if you had seen the films on TV in the 70s and 80s. I am happy to overlook the minor and infrequent visual flaws, given the age of these films and the very reasonable price. If you are a true fan, it's difficult to go wrong with this purchase.
The "Planet Of The Apes" Legacy Blu Ray collection. All 5 apes movies on Blu Ray plus a bunch of extras AND the killer part... Both versions of "Conquest" and "Battle"...The theatrical version and the director's cut, with additional scenes. In essence you are getting 7 "Apes" movies and a ton of extras for 20 bucks. You can't beat that with a stick! Read the ad description...
