Dawn of the Planet of the Apes | Review

Monkey Trouble: Reeves Get a Crack at Famed Cinematic Simian Franchise

It’s kind of wild to think how much cinematic mileage (now eight films and two television series) has been milked from Pierre Boulle’s 1963 novel, Planet of the Apes. After 2011’s franchise reboot, Rise of the Planet of the Apes became a surprise moneymaker (after also surpassing critical expectations), its inevitable sequel has arrived—Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. That said, Matt Reeves, known for his Let Me In remake and Cloverfield, gets to follow in Rupert Wyatt’s footsteps. For better or worse, it’s an assuredly solid chapter in the continuing saga with this material, though sadly bereft of the more inventive narrative surprises of the last film. Even as staunchly predictable as its plot is (though, it’s worth noting that it means to highlight the calculable nature of humans and primates

What monkeys mean in the movies

Friend, killer, lover, specimen ...

The guinea pig

Cinema persistently tries to achieve what science so far has not: make a man/monkey mashup. In The Doctor's Experiment; or Reversing Darwin's Theory (1908) men are turned into apes, while in Balaoo the Demon Baboon (1913, twice remade) a doctor has a go at the reverse, with the side-effect of turning them murderous. In 1932's Murders in the Rue Morgue, women are injected with ape blood (they die); in Return of the Ape Man (1944) Bela Lugosi swaps John Carradine's brain with that of a gorilla (again, doesn't go well). The Man Without a Body (1957) tells of an impressionable gent who submits to the ministrations of a scientist who has been seeing what happens when you play switcheroo with monkey heads.

Zach Galifianakis drops in on 'Conan' (literally) and calls Donald Trump 'the bully of the world'

Zach Galifianakis drops in on 'Conan' (literally) and calls Donald Trump 'the bully of the world'
Now this is how you make an entrance, people. During Monday night’s Conan, Zach Galifianakis — one of the trio of handsome Hangover Part II men gracing our cover this week — decided to take the whole “dropping in” to a talk show thing to the next level.

After Conan O’Brien announced Galifianakis, there was a brief pause before the funny man descended — well, more like plummeted — to the set like a bearded angel. Major props to Galifianakis for committing to the bit (from the looks of it, that was no stunt man) with both the initial fall and the stumble afterward.

Horses in film: Why the long face?

It's because Hollywood has put horses out to pasture, and the days of the great equine role seem to have passed. Joe Queenan mourns the disappearance of Hollywood's mane players

At a certain age, actors – both men and women– start to complain that they are no longer offered the roles they once were, that the scripts they are sent by their agents are not equal to their talents. But isn't that even more true of horses? Horses used to be prominent figures in films, rearing their glorious heads and shaking their magnificent manes in everything from Fort Apache to Ben-Hur, not to mention idolatrously horse-centred motion pictures such as The Man from Snowy River and National Velvet. But the arrival of a new movie such as Secretariat drives home the point that horses no longer occupy the position of power in Hollywood that they once did, that a movie featuring
