Planet of the Apes

The next Planet of the Apes movie isn’t coming out until next year but this list is ready so I’m posting it.

I read the original novel by Pierre Boulle years ago and enjoyed it a lot. I read some fairly recent graphic novels by Daryl Gregory and Corinna Bechko and enjoyed them too.

Ape fever was so high in the 1970s that there were 2 TV shows. The live action Planet of the Apes (1974) gets 3/5. I haven’t seen the animated Return to the Planet of the Apes (1975).

As for the movies, I’ve seen all of them — the first 6 more than once. Here’s the list.

The original series

  • Planet of the Apes
    • 1968 -> 5/5
  • Beneath the Planet of the Apes
    • 1970 -> 4.5/5
  • Escape from the Planet of the Apes
    • 1971 -> 4/5
  • Conquest of the Planet of the Apes
    • 1972 -> 3.5/5
  • Battle for the Planet of the Apes
    • 1973 -> 3/5

Tim Burton’s version

  • Planet of the Apes
    • 2001 -> 2.5/5
