    Man. Planet Of The Apes is something that I totally missed out on when I was a kid. I mean, it was all around me but I never bothered to check it out. I actually never saw the movie until a few years ago. Dood, that ending is by far one of the bleakest ones I’ve ever seen. Tremendous.

    Oh yeah! I had quite a few geeky pals who talked about those flicks a bit. But just never bothered to check ’em out myself.
