I love that you have to enter a birthday to watch the trailers, and all but one of these was rated G. :)

I didn't know about the subsequent four films. Any good?

Now the site says this deal is "Only Available for Store Pickup." So the deal is available to you only if there is a Best Buy in range that has one in stock

John Huston and Paul Williams starring in the same film. Only in the Seventies, baby!

@rookie3001: Personally, the third film is my favorite of the series.

On the others: The second seems tacked on and feels more like a star trek episode, but has some neat moments. The third and fourth are have interesting concepts and complete the story, but are really slow moving at best and boring at worst.

For reference, the remakes are of #1, 4, and 5. Which makes sense because chronologically they go 3, 4, 5, 1, 2.

The Best Buy right around the corner had it in stock. Rock'n great deal. Will watch with my kids when they are old enough in a few years. Loved Austin Stoker in Battle for the Planet of the Apes-

@pe5t1lence: If by remakes you're talking about the last 2 (not included in this set) I would say that the one from Tim Burton in the 90's isn't even worth the time you would take to view it.

The one that was recently made (2011?) was fantastic but it's really an overall prequel that kicks off the initial timeline loop that then moves forward with these movies. I would say that one is intended to be part of the chronology of these 5 movies in this set. Yep, I love this franchise :)

Just want to add that some blu-ray players will have trouble with the first disk (continuous intro loop). Just be aware of that.

@pe5t1lence: I agree with jfrade.

You can't input the two most recent remakes in with the orginal series.

Also, I disagree on part 3 being the best film. To me, that film is the goofiest and cheesy of all 5 movies. I mean, apes walking around in modern day times being movie starts...wft? It's laughable, at best. Apart from the first film (the best), Part 4, Conquest, has the most action and deeper plot lines. It was originally rated R prior to the movie needing to be cut to get it down to a more acceptable rating, if this tells you anything. In addition, the undertones of the movie reflect segregation and racism of the 1960's, making the film extremely relative and compelling.
