1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    But..they're monkeys. It's not like they know how to use guns and stuff. And how is it that they managed to take over the entire planet? Wouldn't they need to fly planes? At the very least, they need to know how to operate a computer.

    No, they're apes.

    No. Did they explain how the "apes" supposedly took over?

    Yes.

    It was actually quite good. This remake stuff is utter crap.

    I'm sure the people involved with the original are shocked by its staying power. I mean, they're pretty damn schlocky movies when you come down to it, but 40+ years later it's still a valuable franchise. It just goes to show how powerfully the underlying story resonates with audiences - even if we're almost wiped off the face of the planet, humans will still triumph!

    I'm glad they dropped the time travel angle for this one. "Battle" never made a lot of sense to me - he goes back in time to find that chimps and gorillas have already been domesticated and mastered tool use etc, and they're just waiting for him to teach them how to speak?

    But at the end of Beneath the Planet of the Apes, the nuclear bomb goes off. The world is destroyed. Everything that ever lived was wiped from existence. I'm not sure that's a triumph.

    LMAO I forgot all about that.

    Anybody remember when The 4:30 Movie on WABC New York? They did an annual PotA marathon for many years that I always used to watch.
