    Planet of the apes better have done well after they stuffed it in my face for God knows how long. It was like I couldn’t turn my tv on without seeing at least one or more planet of th ape commercials. But I gues that’s good promoting.

    @Subash: You’re just jealous that she’s successful internationally and your precious Bollywood goddesses are not.

    I don’t get the hatred for Freida Pinto. From what I’ve been reading, some Indian people don’t like her representing Indian women because she’s not fair skinned. Which is absolutely bulls*it. She’s beyond beautiful. I hope she gets more work and we get to see way more of her.

    Awesome movie btw.

    Freida Pinto is stunning, one of the prettiest actresses out there. Indians sound like a bunch of self-hating people with their stupid comments about her!

    ALL of the original “Planet of the Apes” movies were great.
    Happy I was a kid and around to appreciate original ideas without CGI and entertainment shows that give away movie making secrets BEFORE movies are released.

    Everyone was shocked in 1st movie when the apes appeared on horses and captured people like animals.

    Charleton Heston’s last line in the movie after spotting the Statue of Liberty in the sand…”damn you all to hell” … priceless.

    Couldn’t pay me to sit a theatre today..everything is a remake..and not that good.

    im indian i have dark skin. so don’t generalize that all indians hate her or are jealous of her. also not all indians worship fair skinned people. i just dont like her because she cannot act. pure and simple.

    Freida Pinto has the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen on another human being. She needs to find an older boyfriend. Dev is cute sure, but he’s too young for her.

    IDK Freida looks pretty fair skin to me and is good actor…. Ryan Reynolds = Box office poison.

    Karen Says:

    Good for Freida. The other Bollywood actresses are mostly light-skinned (for India) bimbettes who are also extremely false. You can’t have a 2 second conversation with them without wanting to kill yourself. Freida doesn’t need any validation from Mumbai. She’s ok.
