 Planet of the ApesFEB. 8
THE DAY WE ALL WENT A LITTLE APE
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
We all go a little ape sometimes. For the world it began on this day, Friday, February 8, in 1968. That was the day 20th Century Fox released their Hollywood adaptation of the novel, MONKEY PLANET, by author Pierre Boulle (Bridge On The River Kwai).

Retitled as PLANET OF THE APES, it was Pierre's first science fiction novel. As far reaching and questioning of humanity as anything from Philip K. Dick: having read it a few times, I cannot tell the difference in stylistic imagination.

For me, PLANET OF THE APES is the novel Philip K. never got around to writing.

You think Philip K. Dick's writing is too crazy for your tastes? You wouldn't believe the backstory to author Pierre's vida loco. Even after his Spy game, after his time as a POW in World War II was over (captured and imprisoned by his fellow Frenchmen who didn't know what side he was on and he couldn't reveal it to them), the man who couldn't stop making history. History kept being thrust upon him.

Have you ever heard of the blacklisted Hollywood 10? Communist Dalton Trumbo and that bunch and the bizarre censorship contortions that the Hollywood Academy were putting themselves through in the 1950s and 1960s (yeah, I know the Academy is going through all kinds of hell now on matters of both gender and race - seems they are never on the "right side of history", eh?)?

In 1958, the Academy awarded Pierre an Oscar for the screenplay to Bridge On The River Kwai (pay attention Star Wars fans. That's the movie that made Obi Wan Kenobi an A-List star). Except Pierre didn't know how to write movie scripts and he didn't speak or write English. So who did? Two writers on the Hollywood Blacklist!

Now that you you've got a feel for the depth of inertia behind this wave, here is our review of 1968's PLANET OF THE APES.

FUCKING HELL! Dallas is Dead!
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
Dallas Mayr, aka Jack Ketchum, wrote brutal Horror stories. He didn't see them as such. At most he'd admit that his novels had "Horror elements". Dallas often wrote about what scared him personally, so many of his works were based on actual criminals, crimes, or events.

He was never heavy-handed about it either. Dallas was literary so his work never veered into the theatrical or dry pedantry.

If you didn't know Dallas, this is the last Interview we did with him.

Dallas Mayr.

What does Rotten Tomatoes Have Against John Carpenter?

It began when Rotten Tomatoes Twitter wished John Carpenter a Happy Birthday While acknowledging he is dead!

Rotten Tomatoes Mistakingly Says John Carpenter Is Dead

Rotten Tomatoes Tweet

Except, of course, John isn't dead.

John was droll enough to tweet back,

However, at Rotten Tomatoes, they ignore his bar-setting, influential main body of work to focus on movies like... SILENCE OF THE HAMS?!?

John Carpenter on Rotten Tomatoes

He didn't write those! He didn't Direct or Produce those! He had little more than a gracious walk-on part.

What are you up to, Rotten?
