I didn't see a thread for this, so I thought I'd bring it up. Some guy "re-imagined" (I put it in quotes as some might not find that term fitting, I think it is) Planet of The Apes as a Twilight Zone episode. I haven't seen it all, but I figured it would want to be seen by you guys.
Below is some info taken from the youtube video.

Planet of the Apes "re-imagined" as an episode of The Twilight Zone. Why?

Rod Serling, creator of The Twilight Zone, also co-wrote the screenplay for Planet of the Apes. Which is why the movie plays like a two-hour episode of the show, complete with social commentary and shock ending.

Thanks to digital video editing, I was able to re-edit the movie as an episode of the show. Opening narration comes from the episode "Elegy." Closing narration comes from "The Shelter."

You can read the full "making of" story at http://www.theforbidden-zone.com/media/tzone.shtml


Conveniently, it's small enough it doesn't even need a torrent. Enjoy and I guess post your thoughts here.

Oh, I saw this a while ago. I was wondering if it might pop up on this site. Its pretty neat, well done. I wish the video quality was a bit better, good stuff though. Definitely worth a viewing.

In the shooting script and the novelization of Return Of The Jedi, Obi Wan explained that he had entrusted his brother Owen with raising Luke. Obi-Wan and Owen were brothers up until Episode II, when George Lucas.. changed his mind.
