    Question Planet of the Apes

    I just recently rewatched my copy of the latest Planet of the Apes movie, can anyone please explain to me how when the mark walburgh guy went back in time and got to earth, it had been taken over by the apes. Now it is my understanding that the entire crew of his ship died looking for him so they wouldn't have brought any smart apes back with them...so itsj ust one more thig to boggle my small mind,
    Give me a bad reputation!!!

    >>went back in time and got to earth

    I thought they went forward in time and 'popped' out in reverse order.
    That is the mothership went into the time thingy last but came out first. Then Mark W and finally the ape (he went into the time thingy after).

    When Marky Mark gets back to Earth, the power of his Guess Jeans altered time so that the Apes had taken over the world. I'm pretty sure he goes forward in time, since there's a monument to General Monkey saying that's where he was buried.

    I can't believe you bought that piece of crap.

    I haven watched the movie (I'm not much of a movie buff anyway) but I did watch the original Planet of the Apes and I loved it. Some guy named Burton(?) starred in it.

    If I remember correctly, the producers of that crappy movie just added that ending on there just to make people think, even though they themselves have no idea what it means. Thats some great movie production going on there!

    I heard Tim Burton stole the idea from Kevin Smith.

    Does anybody know if the guards in Space Quest 2 are supposed to be the Apes from that movie. I mean, it was Xenon.
