Sure, I know all about those damned dirty apes, but only second-hand. I've never actually seen Planet of the Apes or any of its sequels/prequels/remakes. Frankly, I'm not sure I'd be able to watch it without thinking of the Troy McClure-starring stage musical version from The Simpsons.
I know, right? How have I not found the time in the last 15 years to catch up with this one? I'm pretty sure my brother even has it on DVD. No excuse!
I'm a big Orson Wells fan - as actor, as director, as writer, whatever - so I really don't know why I've never managed to see this one. Obviously, this is a situation that must be rectified as soon as possible.
There are countless reasons why I should have seen this by now - I love the book, John Ford is one of the most masterful directors of all time, Henry Fonda is in it, the list goes on - and yet... here we are.
Who hasn't seen The Good, The Bad & The Ugly? Uh, me. Why not? I dunno. Better get on that, I guess.
