Movie Reviews

The "Apes" movies doesn't get any better than this.
06/13/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You all know the storyline and characters, so I will just comment on the BluRay quality, and why you should get it.

I had read the reviews and as I have found in the past with most reviews, what you read is based on a single persons view of what they saw, how they heard the film, and on the TV and sound system they used. I was expecting to see the original DVD versions cleaned up a little and transferred to BluRay. I figured it would be a little better because of the higher resolution of the format.

But instead, I saw the Planet Of The Apes films come to a new life. The picture is stunningly clean and clear. The brightness and colors are perfect and vivid. They look as good as the first day they ran in theaters, and sound far better. Each disc has a bunch of extra bonus featurettes, which most are in HD.

The audio is all in 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio. The original stereo soundtrack of the 1970's was never designed for home theater 5.1 surround sound, but the remixing of the audio tracks have lots of discrete channel separation where it counts. It is not the earth pounding, glass shattering audio quality of today's surround sound movies, but it is pretty damned good. It has depth you never heard before from DVD's or in the theaters.

The box these movies comes in is a disappointment to me. Take 3 standard DVD boxes and stack them on the table. Then take 3 more DVD boxes and stack them next to the others. That is the size of the case for these movies. It opens in 5 flaps with the discs mounted on 2 of them. They are each held onto the flap by a round rubber nub that is difficult to remove and replace the discs onto. I am afraid of scratching the discs. It's a nice rugged case, but because of it's oversize, you can't just put it on the shelf with the rest of your DVD's. It is way too big. I would have rather had 5 of the normal blue boxes to fit on the shelf with the rest of my collection. Or 5 of the thinner blu boxes in one cardboard case the size of normal BD boxes. I may even buy 5 empty BluRay boxes and use them to store the discs.

The big case holds a large hard cover book that gives a history and background into each movie, and a look ahead at the new Planet Of The Ape's (2003) movie disaster with Mark Wahlberg. The book is sort of cool, but I could have lived without it. It didn't tell us anything we didn't already know.

If you are a big fan of the "Planet Of The Apes" movies like I am, and you have a nice HD TV and full digital HD surround sound system, buy this new BluRay version of the movie series. You will not be disappointed in any way. It is well worth the current [...]. price here on Amazon."
