It is no surprise that a great movie like the Planet of the Apes would settle for a sub par musical score The Planet of the Apes 1968 version scored by Jerry Goldsmith is considered to be avant-garde and his score was considered to be groundbreaking and innovative The Planet of the Apes 2001 version scored by Danny Elfman for many was taken as a great musical score In comparing the early film and its new version I found that both composers were able to portray the theme of the film to the best of their abilities I appreciated their work in these films they are very talented musical composers Jerry Goldsmiths music in The Planet of the Apes was considered to be bold and original in the world of film Goldsmith is well known for hits like Patton and Chinatown The film The Planet of the Apes itself helped depict the outcome of the music in The Planet of the Apes 1968 version To me The Planet of the Apes was a disturbing dark and thrilling movie The music that Goldsmith provided for the film matched the intensity of the film His music was very progressive in every scene It seemed to get bigger and louder as the action progressed Listening to the music that Goldsmith composed was really mind-boggling Even though it was dissonant his score was able to capture the upside down world in which apes were the masters and in which the humans were the slaves The theme of disorder and chaos in The Planet of the Apes really worked in the film The sounds of the film were distorted unrecognizable sounds There were these sharp whooshing sounds that sounded as if it were a knife that was prominent in the film The sounds were heightened in the suspense and lead us to yearn for more and be more interested in the film The music was very dramatic Mickey mousing
