Rise of the Planet of the Apes is poop throwingly awesome

best scene in any movie ever.

I'm not really in the habit of reviewing movies (at least movies that aren't on SyFy at 3am), but this weekend I was able to see the new Planet of the Apes movie and let me tell you, it was awesome.

Forget the awful (but at times entertaining) Tim Burton remake, Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a straight up prequel to the 1968 classic. In fact in an obtuse sort of way it makes for a better sequel to that movie than Beneath the Planet of the Apes does, even while it ignores the convoluted continuity built in the 1970s sequels.

See this is why I don't review movies. 4 sentences in and I'm already talking about Ape continuity. Back to my point, it's a real good movie and if you're a fan of the Charleton Heston original, it's a great movie. It's got everything you want from a big summer action film: action, heart, apes, a lack of Michael Bay. Just go see it, you won't be disappointed.
