Categories: AltLeft, AltRight, Architecture, Art, Movie Reviews, Uncategorized

The original Planet of the Apes sequels may have had lower budgets and far fetched premises (even moreso than the first installment) but they became more imaginative and at times the line between hero and villain became somewhat blurred, leaving speciest (human) audiences conflicted about whom to root for.
