Father and son span generations with Planet of the Apes movies.
on September 9, 2017
About a month ago I watched the original Planet of the Apes with my son, who ended up liking it more than he thought he would. So, after watching the trailer we gave this re-imagined version a try, and I was amazed to find it as enjoyable in its own right as the original.
I typically feel burned after watching re-imagined classics because they so often just don't work, but this movie does. And, it really rewards those who have seen the original movie series from the late 60's and 70's. There are "easter egg" types of things all the way through, so my son and I had fun seeing allusions to the original as we were watching this version. My son even caught one that I didn't. Too much fun.
