Murnau's "Nosferatu" is to seethe vampire movie before it had really seen itself.
July 27,3: Because given some of the belligerence and out right anger I witnessed tonight at a public sneak here in Austin, Texas… Well the film is going to have a very loudly vocal HATE MOB that will scream assaults at the film without ever thinking about what they are seeing… From where it all comes… And why it is that it is the way it is.
There are very few absolutely fantastic beyond doubt aspects to this film, which I like quite a bit, but do not love, but may come to. Sure, there are many other people responsible for the make-up beyond just him, but it is with his techniques and guiding hand that the make-up becomes ALIVE.
Had nothing else worked, I would have simply stared in awe at this work. Watching Roth work within the make-up is just… Wow. Watch the way an Academy Award winning cinematographer photographs supreme make up… This looks a hundred times better than computer generated characters. Now, while make-up alone would get me to watch this film again, admittedly I entered film fandom wanting to grow up to be just like Lon Chaney Sr.
But beyond that we have a wonderful score by Danny Elfman. He accepts that in a strange bizarre cosmos of infinite possibilities that this could be one of those possibilities and decides to simply try to get out of there. He came searching for his monkey and got more than he bargained for.
The Apes and all the fuzzy species of this planet rule. David Warner as a senator filled me with a delight I was not expecting. Glen Shadix is a GOD.
An utterly amazing achievement. Shadix transforms the make-up, as very few actors in history have into a place to become born anew.
I have never seen Shadix resonate quite like this… Regal and boisterous. The sort of greatness that too briefly hits the silver screen these days.
Problems with the film.
Oh yes, there are many. Once again Tim Burton shows that he is not meant for action filmmaking on a grand scale. Burton has exhibited only once in his career the potential for this area.
But here, there is no fluidity of action. It is just a messy jumble of flying apes. Hey, I love apes, I think the furry bastards rule… But I simply could not handle all the leaping about stuff.
The pummeling of enemies was wonderfully apish. The human characters that were native to the Planet of the Apes were just tediously boring.
What was gained by having the humans talking? Nothing they talked about moved the plot forward. Nothing they said gave us insight into their characters. Keeping them mute, but understanding language would have been stronger.
Burton understands the odd, the strange, the unusual. However, he is bored with humans in general. Here in this film we see the key flaws of Burton and the key joys of him as well. Burton is a fetish filmmaker.“War for the Planet of the Apes - Official Movie Novelization Book information Type Novel.
At the end of the battle on the Planet of the Apes, we have learned that the planet is the way it is because the Oberon crashed, thereby releasing the animals that were genetically engineered, who eventually revolted against their human masters, and took over.
Jul 05, · So, as Karen Shragg's new book "Moving Upstream" so clearly points out, human overpopulation is the "upstream" source of all human environmental harm.
