Well, it looks good but I don't like changing the origin for humans destroyed themselves to they made the apes that destroyed them.

Yeah it looks like a good movie. Not sure it looks like a good reboot of the Planet of the Apes movies. But we will see, can't be worse then the Mark E. Mark version. lol

I prefer to think of it as the Tim Burton movie, which was the worst thing about it.

I love me my Planet Of The Apes! I'm not sure about this new attempt, but it's gotta be better than the shitty Burton version. I've been hearing about it for a while now and have been crossing my fingers.

After seeing this teaser I'm a bit mixed. It looks halfway decent and the weta cgi is pretty impressive, it's just that it's a whole new thing. It doesn't fit with the old series, yet it kind of makes sense. We never really found out how the apes evolved like they did; obviously Caesar couldn't have done it all alone and by the fourth movie they were all evolved. I guess I just have this fanboy wish that they could make it fit into the old canon, even though I know it could never happen.

Fingers still crossed.

Yeah, they kind of left that hanging, didn't they? I guess you're forced to believe the ape evolution was natural and Caesar just helped them along.

Yeah, I never bought into these movies. We wipe out entire species of animals by acident, nevermind when we want to do it. How could apes defeat the human armies makes no sense.

If I can get past the CG apes, then I might give it a whirl.
A buddy of mine read the shooting script last night and says it's pretty solid. He and I have very similar tastes, so who knows?
I'd love to see a return to the John Chambers make-up, but I can see where a studio would be reluctant. Plus WETA does a fantastic job.

Fine. We ahve enought assault rifles in the world to arm most civilians. Now what?

Or failing that.. the magical wonders of airstrikes.

Oh and tank drivers are armed most of the times.

Well if I accepted that apes took over the world in the old series, I can suspend disbelief again.

I love that last shot of the ape (Caesar?) sitting there looking around with a menacing look...creepy as fuck.

"Gorilla" warfare. (See what I did there?) They raid weapons caches and interrupt supply lines, while seamlessly navigating wilderness and some urban settings in ways we can't even wrap our heads around......all the while luring us in with our over confidence and underestimation. Superior armies are great to have, but not required for victory against a determined enemy. Lest we forget Vietnam....

The thing that always got me was the old TV series.
The reason the apes evolved or gained prominence was that all dogs and cats were destroyed in a plague. Hence, Apes were first domesticated as pets. but! after a while humans realized apes could be made to do more than just be companions. they could be taught to SERVE. and were eventually made into slaves.
The problem?
In the very first episode an ape boy is urging his pet. to hunt a human down. the pet is none other than A DOG!!!!

lol just a little nitpic!

Wich the US kinda won on military terms. The Tet Ofensive was what hapened when the vietcong tried to take on the US army head on, and they got their asses kicked for their efforts.

The apes work in conjunction with Skynet to take down humans.

"Head on" a superior military force has the upper hand. But Guerrilla Warfare is about creating a battle of attrition and minimizing the larger war machine to the point of breaking.

You gotta get this idea that sheer might is all it takes, out of your head.

If superior force is all it took, then the war in Afghanistan would of been over when the Russians were the ones fighting it. We wouldn't have had to run from Vietnam with our tails between our legs even after we initiated a draft.

All it takes is one ruptured hose, one slipping belt or one imbalanced cog to render a machine useless. The War Machine is no different.

Yep. That's how the Irish brought one of the greatest empires in the world to the bargaining table.
Heck, it's how we did it.

Regardless, guerrila movements usualy have bigger power backing them with weapons, support and logistical training. The apes in this case have none. A guerrilla movement needs help to survive, usually in the form of support from a bigger nation.

They could scavenge weapons, but it would still not be enough. With no external backing any guerrila movement is doomed to fail, mostly because of atritition and because the other side has more guns and men.

But I read the spoilers for the movie and the way the apes win makes sense and its not stupid.

But...But....my shield has a +12 monkey reverberator so the Apes couldn't possibly win.

When the Apes or Zombies rise up, keep that overconfidence. While you're being enslaved or eaten, I'll make my get away and fight smart.
