Join me and Drew of Trek.fm as we experiment on our own brains with the help of James Franco and a ton of CGI until we see apes everywhere. We analyze the structure of the film and compare it to the old Apes movies, the sequel, and “Flowers for Algernon”, Deep Blue Sea, and Dragonball Z. And we wonder who the hell “Rupert Wyatt” is.
We puzzle over some minor plot holes, try to “fix” the film, and create our own sequels and crossovers. I question James Franco’s salary and taste in vehicles; Drew compares James Franco to C-3P0; and we both try to figure out who the villain is.
Note: we get the dates of the King Kong movies wrong. The original is 1933 and the remake was 1976.
We are watching the Blu-ray version. Start the film after the logos but before the 20th Century Fox title card on the countdown.
