Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes is a very frustrating movie for me. It has a great cast including Tim Roth, Paul Giamatti, Glen Shadix, Kris Kristofferson, David Warner, Michael Clarke Duncan and a great cameo by Charlton Heston and some of Rick Baker’s most amazing make-up work, which is saying a whole lot.
But the humans in the movie… Good God, the humans! Estella Warren almost single-handedly kills the movie and Mark Wahlberg turned on his big-budget bland lead levels to 11.
Burton’s movie is all over the place, but I can’t hate it for two reasons: Tim Roth’s performance and Rick Baker’s make-up. Roth is on another level here and there are just some really fun performances from a great collection of character actors… but that’s not enough to overcome how crappy the rest of the movie is at the end of the day.
But since we have Rise hitting today, let’s look at the last attempt to reboot and appreciate how good we have it this weekend! Here’s Tim Burton and the great Paul Giamatti!
