The Soulless Minions of Orthodoxy - Alternative DVD Commentaries


Josh & Justin are The Soulless Minions of Orthodoxy. We record commentaries for classic and contemporary films. 

Feb 17, 2011

Planet of the Apes is a classic piece of Sci-Fi. But what about its sequels? We're taking a look at the third film in the franchise. Overall we enjoy this movie quite a bit, however, we do attempt to deconstruct its plot and characters a little bit in an attempt to make sense of some of its loose story threads.

Lol.

Time Travel... what a great subject. It's so fun to talk about.

You're right, all he says is that something very very bad(a galactic catyclism I think he calls it) must have happend that popped the apes to a different time line.

I guess I'll have to agree with you guys that it's not the most understandable explanation. It's like some deranged guy runs up to you and shouts: "INFINITE-D! PARALEL TIME LINES! BIG-BADA-BOOM! You know! TIME TRAVEL!" And expects you to know what he's talking about.

Hi, Arnold. Right off the bat I just want to say thanks for listening. I see what you mean by Hasslein's explanation and his use of imagery to emphasize to his point. That's all well and good in my mind and makes perfect sense. I just thought that he never really explained how they actually travelled to the past. He seemed to skirt the issue. But that's me. We're just jazzed that you like our show. Hope you keep listening.

Hi,

I enjoy you commentaries, but I absolutely disagree that Hassleins time-travel explanation is gibberish. In my opinion it's the best explanation I've ever heard in a movie. He basically says you need to be a 4D entity to be able to percieve the world outside of time. He does that by reducing the world to the 2D painting and the 4D entity to the painter. Who is both observer and participant.

Greetings,
Arnold
