I've been told by numerous people that as the "Planet of the Apes" series goes on it gets worse and worse. I happen to disagree. I think this is the best installment of the first four. This is basically the story of Caesar, the ape child of Cornelius and Zira from the first 3 movies. He sees apes being used as slaves and starts a revolution to over take man. The concept and story is pretty simple, and very well done. Made in 1972, it's cool to see it's take on the future(as the movie is set in the crazy futuristic year of 1991). The new movie "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" looks like a re-imagining of this movie, and I think that's the best choice. This is really the best way to restart this franchise for a newer audience. I'm glad I've gone back and discovered this great series of films, as they hold up fairly good almost 40 years later.

The civil rights movement through the lens of a sci-fi apes revolt in the streets movie. Really really interesting and fully of a lot of insanity (and silliness)
