Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Went and saw this yesterday. Pretty good flick. The digital Apes were amazing. Their Facial expressions were probably the best I've seen in CGI so far. The Story was OK.....not great.....but OK.

they even had a few references to the original POTA movie which satisfied a geek like me.

I'm actually looking forward to watching Apes when it comes out on BluRay!

You know they make movies in color now-a-days too.....but that happened after you gave up on "The Talkies"

Sounding like rather than buying the BluRay for $20, I'll wait for OnDemand for $3 (nonHD).
