Mary and Max was REALLY good, but my fiance has Aspergers so maybe I'm biased.
Anyway, Rise of the Planet of the Apes....HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, especially if you are a fan of the original! I was really iffy on it at first, still having a bad taste in my mouth from that Burton stinkbomb, but this one was excellent!
I even noticed the homages to the original, like at the end when the cops are beating the apes with batons from horseback trying to get them to run into the line of fire on the bridge, choreographed exactly like the scene at the beginning of the original when the apes were hunting humans.
I appreciate little shit like that.
Actually, much of the movie mirrored the original, but with apes in the cages rather than Heston. Will watch again, loved it.
