Week of the Apes

So me and my new roommates have been ripping through the Planet of the Apes series this week.  It all started when we were browsing through my VHS collection looking for something to watch.  After finishing the original Planet of the Apes we realized that we had to watch the whole series.  So a few nights after we watched Beneath the Planet of the Apes, which happens to be my favourite of the series.  “Escape” is the third installment of the series and mostly goofy except for the explanation of infinite regression halfway through the film and of course the epic ending where everyone dies.  Otherwise, this movie is marred by dated and cliched moments, a 70s funk soundtrack and Zera and Cornelius wearing 70s attire.  Easily the weirdest of the series.  I couldn’t find the actual footage of the infinite regression scene, but this is a remix that has the dialogue in it.  Very very trippy to think about.

Next we’ll watch”Conquest of the Planet of the Apes” and finally “Battle for the Planet of the Apes”.
