First watch (2011, August probably)Edit

FormatEdit

At home.

JournalEdit

I probably watched it because Rise of the Planet of the Apes was coming out. I think I liked it a lot, a la The Thing. I was certainly interested in the plot, and sought out its sequels, eventually watching Escape from the Planet of the Apes, the third film.

RatingEdit

Can't remember, probably 2.

Second watch (March 2013)Edit

FormatEdit

At the villa on holiday, semi with Luke.

JournalEdit

I wanted to watch it with Luke so I could watch Rise of the Planet of the Apes with him, and fancied watching it with everyone on the holiday, but it was proving difficult to get everyone to sit down for a movie so I just slapped it on and watched it by myself while everyone else was busy. Darren started watching over my shoulder and commenting now and then, and Luke eventually joined me. It was very good, again :)

Third watch (3rd April 2017)Edit

FormatEdit

In my apartment in Osaka, at first with Mum but then by myself.

JournalEdit

With the release of the second trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes and its increasingly close release, I guess I thought of this movie again while looking for something to watch with Mum while she was at my apartment in Osaka in March/April 2017. I put it on while I was sorting the photos from one of our days out, and after about 15 minutes she exclaimed in disbelief at how awful it was and why was I putting her through this :D

So I watched the rest of it by myself after she'd gone home. It's a fun movie :) Mum said it was like watching a terrible play but it's just an old movie!! She's the one who likes old movies more than me...
