To me it looks like they nailed the tone perfectly...not too campy but just campy enough with apes on horesback and stuff. Cool to watch them go from normal apes in the first one to what we see here.

I'm glad James Franco isn't in it. He's a mostly terrible actor

Truly. I like the guy because he's likable but seriously you're right, the dude can't act.

I dont know if James Franco is a bad actor or if James Franco just illustrates perfectly how ridiculous acting as a profession is. What I mean is that technically his work is up to snuff but the idea is that the work of acting is kind of silly in itself. Its like he reminds us all that acting is just a bunch of douchebags getting millions of dollars to lie on camera. Hollywood has deluded us into worshipping these douchebags. Franco reminds us that these people are just dumb douchebags who usually have narcissistic personality disorders (there are good actors who are good as artists first and actors second. those people are rare.)

That said I like some of his roles. His work with Rogan is pretty funny, when hes being self-aware of how silly he is.

And I dont think it needed to be said, but Oldman > Franco and most other actors. He can turn lead into gold.

Yeah Franco can be funny for sure.. like I said I like the guy.. and that's because he can make me laugh and all that.

He's a comedy actor though because of his personality. I don't think he has the capacity to really get into the serious role.


What i mean by 'good' actor is someone who can take on different roles and really sell it.

Also, mentioning Rogan. He's better than Franco, acting wise.


He really half-assed Green Hornet though.

Jason Clarke is awesome. Will be good to see him in what appears to be more of a lead role.
