Complete Collection of Planet of the Apes DVDs

You simply cannot beat this collection of Planet of the Apes DVDs. It literally has every single thing you could possibly want. It has the original movie, which was outstanding and really is the best individual movie of the entire genre. It has all five of the sequels, which at times border on the cheesy, but if you are an Apes fan and loved them as a kid, you'll certainly want these as well. It has the ENTIRE television series, which I loved as a kid. It has all the animated (cartoon) series, which I don't care for too much. And it has the 2001 remake of the original Planet of the Apes. And finally, it has a disc with all bonus features.

All the discs are of very high quality reproduction with no problems.

You just can't beat having such a comprehensive collection that includes everything you would want if you are a Planet of the Apes fan, and then some.

What did you think of this review?

Does it have the making of the original movie documentary too? That would make it the absolutely most complete thing you could ever buy on the APES. Roddy McDowall hosted it and it was included with the last set that was issued.

Yes, it certainly does. It has EVERYTHING!

I am in awe. This is the one we've all been waiting for.

It is definately worth getting.

I plan on getting it as soon as it becomes affordable, meaning it turns up used on amazon. So it may take a good long time but I'm learning to wait since I no longer have any other choice.

About this movie


Amazon com
While provoking neither the decades of spin-offs of the Star Trek franchise or the cultural staying power of the Star Wars universe, Planet of the Apes nonetheless lives in the hearts of many a Sunday afternoon TV-watcher. A high water mark for prosthetic movie magic, this primate-vs-man epic--spanning four movies, a TV series, and an animated series--was as integral to the 1970s as Led Zeppelin or muscle cars. So how to properly pay tribute to a science fiction franchise about intelligent apes roaming a post-apocalyptic earth?

In a freaking ape head boxed set, man.

It's true. 20th Century Fox packaged the entire run--movies, TV series, animated series, and the 2001 Tim Burton remake--in Caesar's head. Actually, the 14 discs are efficiently packaged in a fold-out book that slides into the bust's back. The bust is smartly dressed in green canvas, with zippers that don't actually lead to pockets. The hair is a luxurious mane that could have been wasted on at least three toupes. Put this masterpiece of DVD packaging on a shelf and watch it catch the gaze of everyone who walks into the room. Unfortunately, the set does not come with any supplemental reading material; an essay or two on the impact of Planet of the Apes would have been nice. The set is limited to 10,000 copies and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity. For those who don't want to commit to the full ape head experience, most of the discs in this set--sans the animated series, TV show, and ...
