burtons PofA 2001

Whatever feelings you may or may not have for the latest incarnation of Planet of the Apes, there are few people on this or any monkey-ruled planet that would exchange the rebooted franchise for another visit to Tim Burton’s 2001 version. As is befitting a turd of this caliber, the folks over at Screen Junkies have decided to give it the ‘Honest Trailers’ treatment. Scroll on and click the video thingy for a more accurate look at the Apes movie we have tried so hard to forget.

Oh Tim Burton… what happened to you? I remember those movies of my childhood, the brilliant Beetlejuice, the enchanting Edward Scissorhands, the preposterous Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, the bitchin’ Batman… Alas, these movies are gone now, along with, apparently, Burton’s talent.

So the next time someone says to you, “These new Planet of the Apes movies are terrible!” always remember that it could be worse. Much, much worse. So says Aperaham Lincoln.
