I just watched Rise of the Planet of the Apes and I thought it was fantastic. I have to admit that before viewing this flick I was a Planet of the Apes virgin. I know, I am as shocked as you are. Now I have to go back and watch the original and the sequels from the 70's. I heard the 2001 remake sucked so I won't get my hopes up when I eventually watch that one.
In my opinion you really can't go wrong with prequels. There is always a story to tell and Hollywood many routes to go. Unfortunately sequels are harder to live up to because it is tough to top the original. I'm excited about The Wizard of Oz prequel that comes out next year. It tell the story of The Great Oz.
I have a great idea that I have mentioned in the past that someone should come up with a series of at least a trilogy and start at the end and work back to the beginning. Star Wars kind of did that but not entirely. Each movie would leave you wanting to know how you got to that point. They would be prequels to prequels. Someone will eventually have to run with this idea, Hollywood is running out of ideas. Remakes, prequels and sequels seem to be mainstream nowadays.
What do you think Hollywood should do? Do you have any film ideas?
