It's an off-week for the MovieFilm Podcast, but Brian Hall and I are here to inaugurate a brand-new feature for the show: the MovieFilm Commentary Track! Yes, due to popular demand, at periodic intervals, we'll be selecting a Movie That Matters from years past and offering up comments and conversation in real time as we watch right alongside you.

For our very first yak track, just in time for Friday's highly-anticipated release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, we've selected the 1968 original that got the whole franchise started: Planet of the Apes, starring Charlton Heston and directed by Franklin Schaffner. So cue up the film, grab some popcorn, and get ready to join in on the chat! We're back next week with our regular MovieFilm installment to talk up Dawn with spoilers galore.
