Planet of the Apes

Tim Burton took on this remake in 2001, failing to replicate Schaffner's powerful 1968 science fiction adventure. While the makeup and effects were better, Mark Whalberg's performance wasn't comparable to Charlton Hestonand Burton didn't examine the fears and issues of late sixties society as Schaffner did. Flick pick: the original.
