If Rise of the Planet of the Apes proves anything, it's not that blockbusters can be smart or that James Franco did deserve that Oscar nomination, it's that CGI apes can be super mega realistic. In fact, they can be more emotionally engaging than most human actors.
Which begs the question: why don't more movies feature CGI apes? We could keep Andy Serkis motion capturing on a loop throughout the year and use computerised chimps in EVERYTHING.
They could replace Matthew McConaughey in all of his rom-coms. Or be digitally substituted for Roger Moore in old James Bond films. If we embrace this revolutionary new technology, we could improve any rubbish movie just by adding apes. (Yes, even Moonraker.)
But just in case you're not convinced, here's conclusive proof (read: pathetic excuse for Photoshopping) that I'm right.
Failure of the Launch of the Planet of the Apes
Rise of the... Moonkeys?
Get your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty misogynistic ape!
Roses are red, violets are blue, these apes are rising and... oh, whatever.
This planet was Earth all along? THEN MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T BE LIVING HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERE
