The fans from this week's episode of Cinemania were on the Talk forum, talking about why they love Planet of the Apes. David, blogging under the pseudonym Ape Fan, said that the film was really the first An Inconvenient Truth: "The film was so far ahead of its time in dealing with the harsh reality that man himself will one day be the cause of his own demise," he wrote. "POTA is the ultimate disaster movie. Climbing to the top of an upside-down ocean liner is child's play compared to dealing with talking Apes that want to cut pieces out of your brain." Jessica echoed David's sentiments about the film's foreshadowing. "The series conveys the notion that the more compliant and backwards and slow mankind gets, the more we open the door for a better species to take over," she writes as jstlykawmn. She goes on to say that the film had a profound influence on her: "John Chamber's make-up creations have influenced my interest in make-up but it is Roddy McDowall who influenced me as an actress!"
