Just Some Thoughts On The Original Planet Of The Apes

  1. For started, they land after their long journey on my birthday!
  2. Inside the space ship, Captain Taylor, while flying through space at the speed of light, is SMOKING A CIGAR!!
  3. Although they land in water, their first reaction is to get away from it. Later they check their rations and find that between the three of them they have 8 ounces of water. Water from earth, from 2,000 years ago. They don't even have a sip from the fresh water lake they're in.
  4. They're on a seemingly dry, barren, desert of a planet (apart from said lake it's very deserty) and after walking for hours, they finally find a sign of life. A plant. A scrawny little excuse for a plant. What do they do? Immediately dig it up. Welcome to our planet, Americans.
  5. During Taylor's trial, we see three orangoutangs feeling distraught, and then briefly see this shot. Classic!
    See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.
  6. If you haven't seen this movie, I won't spoil it for you, but the last five seconds is worth watching the entire movie.
