THE ORIGINAL 1968 PLANET OF THE APES IS WIDELY CONSIDERED ONE of the FINEST SCI-FI MOVIES EVER MADE -- IT WAS a HUGE BOX OFFICE HIT, and WAS NOMINATED for MULTIPLE AWARDS. TIM BURTON's 2001 REMAKE of PLANET OF THE APES...NOT SO MUCH. IT WAS ALSO NOMINATED for MULTIPLE AWARDS, INCLUDING THREE RAZZIES®, ALL of WHICH IT "WON."

BUT the 1968 FILM SQUANDERED ITs AUDIENCE'S RESPECT by METAMORPHOSING into ONE of the 1970's PROGRESSIVELY TACKIER MOVIE FRANCHISES, SPAWNING a STRING of EVER HOAKIER, LESS CLASSY SEQUELS, CULMINATING in a DECIDEDLY MEDIOCRE TV SERIES. and the TOTALLY TACKY 1975 CARTOON SERIES RETURN TO THE PLANET OF THE APES.  

WHEN the 2001 MOVIE REMAKE WAS ALL BUT LAUGHED OFF the SCREEN, IT LOOKED LIKE THIS FRANCHISE WAS AS DEAD as CHEETAH, the TARZAN MOVIES' MUGGING RESIDENT CHIMP. 

BUT LEAVE IT to 20th CENTURY-FOX (WHICH IS, AFTER ALL, a RUPERT MURDOCH ENTERPRISE) to TRY and REVIVE the DEAD MONKEY. RESORTING to a COMBO PREQUEL/REBOOT, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES HAS SOME of the WORST-LOOKING CGI APES WE'VE EVER SEEN, TOP-LINES a CAST of ACTORS WHO ARE (FOR the MOST PART) ATTRACTIVE BUT NOT EXACTLY RELIABLE in TERMS of PICKING GOOD MATERIAL, and WAS HELMED by SOME UNKNOWN WHO WAS LIKELY PAID a PITTANCE for the TASK. 

IN SHORT, THIS LOOKS LIKELY to BE ONE of the BIGGER RAZZIE® SURPRISES in a SURPRISINGLY RAZZIE®-LADEN YEAR

BUT WHY LET US HAVE ALL the FUN?  HERE's a LINK to JOIN IN OUR BABOON-BASHING DISCUSSION of WHAT COULD BE 2011's BIGGEST PILE o' MONKEY POO...

and sniffed it...why does it smell like RAZZberries?!?"
