Review Of The PLANET OF THE APES Franchise (Original 5 Films)

Episode #205: Planet Of The Apes I
Jon reviews the original five films in 20th Century Fox’s long-running “Planet Of The Apes” franchise: the 1968 original starring Charlton Heston; its bizarre and stupid follow-up, “Beneath The Planet Of The Apes”; the quirky sci-fi time travel story, “Escape From The Planet Of The Apes”; the pseudo-futuristic rebellion-focused film, “Conquest Of The Planet Of The Apes”; and the final entry in Caesar’s story – “Battle For The Planet Of The Apes”.

Tonight’s Films:
• Planet Of The Apes (1968) – Still remarkable, a true sci-fi milestone, 9/10.
• Beneath The Planet Of The Apes (1970) – A pointless repackage of its superior predecessor, 4/10.
• Escape From The Planet Of The Apes (1971) – Amusing and thought-provoking picture, 8/10.
• Conquest Of The Planet Of The Apes (1972) – A worthy entry with meaningful themes, 6/10.
• Battle For The Planet Of The Apes (1973) – Isn’t interesting or necessary enough for non-fans, 5/10.
