I so want to see it in theaters (as opposed to online like usual) but nobody here seems to have any interest in going with me.

Saw Planet of the Apes.       Awesome. Epic.   Very much glad I saw it in theaters. Also, if you've seen the original, there are so many homages to it I'm sure I missed some, but they werent distracting. Absolutely a good standalone film, doesnt need any of the other films.

I'ma sit in the back row during a weekday matinee after it's been out a while for Captain America so I can fap to Chris Evans' waxed chest, all glistening with fresh sweat...

In the last two weeks...
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Canterville Ghost*
Arsenic & Old Lace*
Burke & Hare

Enjoyed all of them, but the best movie of bunch was my old favorite with Cary Grant, followed by Canterville Ghost.

*We're subjecting the kids to old movies. They usually complain for the first 10 minutes, then get over the "but it's not even in color" and start to enjoy themselves.

Arsenic & Old Lace

We watched it a few weeks ago. (Again - We watch it a couple times a year.) Inspired the name of our new kitty. (Mortimer Brewster Shaw)

Yes it was. They need to do a sequel with the two armored dudes. They stole the show.

Enjoyed Rise of the Planet of the Apes. 

I'm a huge PotA fan, and it surprised me how different the movie was.  I knew it wouldn't be the same story, but it pretty much totally doesn't fit into the PotA universe, as far as storyline.  That's okay, but it's not what I expected.  I counted eight homages to the original series.  A couple of them were iffy.  The most obvious were a couple direct quotes and a few names (one which wasn't exactly the same.)  Watched it twice, back-to-back, and picked the eighth up that the second time.  I'll avoid spoilers, so I won't say much about it, but the ending was an interesting twist, however passe and unbelievably ironic--can't explain, though.

In what way doesnt it fit into the original universe? I saw the first two original movies, and it fit just fine with those IIRC. Now the other one where the apes actually rise up I dont think it probably matched perfect. They had to change to fit the times, we are more afraid of viruses and such these days.

Enjoyed Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  

I'm a huge PotA fan, and it surprised me how different the movie was.  I knew it wouldn't be the same story, but it pretty much totally doesn't fit into the PotA universe, as far as storyline.  That's okay, but it's not what I expected.  I counted eight homages to the original series.  A couple of them were iffy.  The most obvious were a couple direct quotes and a few names (one which wasn't exactly the same.)  Watched it twice, back-to-back, and picked the eighth up that the second time.  I'll avoid spoilers, so I won't say much about it, but the ending was an interesting twist, however passe and unbelievably ironic--can't explain, though.

In what way doesnt it fit into the original universe? I saw the first two original movies, and it fit just fine with those IIRC. Now the other one where the apes actually rise up I dont think it probably matched perfect. They had to change to fit the times, we are more afraid of viruses and such these days.

First off, there was yet another movie after the movie this one more or less completely rewrites.  It would be fully orphaned by this story.  Secondly, however, the first three in the series are also chronologically after it too.

In the original universe, most humans were wiped out by atomic war (assumption stated in the first, and heavily reinforced in the second), and pets were wiped out by a virus (stated in Conquest, AND Battle, if I recall correctly.)  There are no pets in the original canon (with the possible exception of Escape, which would make sense, but I don't recall any), and the surviving humans are mutants.  Surviving ape and humankind seem centered around New York in the original...Muir woods is pretty far from that.  Clearly, in the original series, the talking apes came from the future, not from some science program.

They've rewritten the story.  Again, that's fine, but it's not consistent with the original universe, for those who expected it to be.  

FWIW, I'm still trying not to spoil it.  Oh, and they didn't "have to change it to fit the times."  There are still plenty of nuclear warheads to fully scorch the earth's surface, and politicians stupid enough to order them used.

Guess I need to go back and watch the movies of old that I havent seen yet.

Priest.

It was a little cheesy and predictable, but since I went into it with very low expectations, I had a lot of fun watching it.

Paying comcast $5 for it instead of $10/person probably helped my satisfaction with the movie, as did having good old-fashioned evil vampires. There have been far too many 'vampires in love' stories out there lately, IMO.

Just saw Duck Soup with a few friends.

Its a Marx brothers flick that has no discernible plot, a few musical numbers in it, and stuff. It wasn't their best work, but still funny.
