  1. Which movie is my favorite?
    That’s an easy one. Definitely the first. It broke new ground. And with Heston’s classic lines and the big reveal at the end, makes the first by far the best for me.

  2. While I love the first one, everyone else seems to also. I will go with Conquest of the Planet of the Apes ESPECIALLY if you use the original ending where it was all dark and severe. They tacked on the last bit and you can tell it doesn’t belong. Without, that movie is just a punch to the face of awesome.

  3. The original Planet of the Apes is my favorite, because it introduced me to an amazing world and left me with a brilliant ending, that while it seems derivative, really set the bar for a twist ending that is completely valid and shifts the worldview for the characters without dismissing the rich story that was presented before the twist. (Yes, that was one LONG FUCKING SENTENCE.)

  4. What a tough choice! Number 1, 3, 4, and 7 are all neck-in-neck. Traditionally, Conquest has edged out the others though, but I might have to reconsider it now with the excellent Rise. I like seeing the Apes take over and I love Roddy McDowell’s portrayal. Plus those jumpsuits are cool. The music for Escape and Conquest are excellent also. Man, my opinion just continues to fluctuate…I’m actually going to go with Escape (today). It’s one thing to have some weird future, but to show how it all started is way cooler. That opening scene where they take off their helmets is great. It really took the series in a whole new direction too. Plus, killing off the main characters is gutsy and tragic, especially given the “lighter” middle chapter. While the “Mama” ending isn’t much of a surprise like the Statue of Liberty, it’s still powerful, because you know what has to come next…

  5. I just saw Rise tonight and HOLY BALLS! That movie was awesome! Sure they had the recognizable “get your hands off me…” line which was a fun nod, bu the “No!” and the black clad police on horseback calling back to Conquest. GOO! What a phenomenal addition to the franchise. It completely washes out the stank that Tim Burton left in my mouth.
