1. One I think.
2. Probably, especially if BOG recommends it.
3. Call of the Constipated Ape.

1. All of them, multiple times, including the steaming turd of a remake starring Marky Mark.

2. You betcha, it really looks interesting.

3. "Fall of the Planet of the Apes". The battle wouldn't be between humans and apes, it would be infighting and poor decisions that would doom the furry buggers. The next sequel would be "Rise of the Planet of the Cockroaches".

Related Rufus Trivia: I LOVED these movies as a kid. A couple of brothers in my neighborhood had a bunch of Mego Planet of the Apes figures and toys. We would stage battles between their apes and my stable of Mego superheroes. There were very specific ground rules in place to ensure a level playing field. I was only allowed to use superheroes without "super" powers because if Superman were allowed to join the fray we'd have a bunch of heat-vision fried monkeys in a matter of seconds. I could only use Batman, Robin, Green Arrow, Captain America and The Falcon. Sometimes my old Hasbro GI Joe would join in after I'd draw a mask on his face with magic marker and name him "Giant Man".

Forgot to mention one of the greatest homages to these movies in pop culture history. Check out The Simpsons Season 7 Episode 19 "A Fish Called Selma" and see Troy McClure starring in the Planet of the Apes musical "Stop The Planet of the Apes, I Want to Get Off!". You will never listen to Falco the same way again.
