With War for the Planet of the Apes wreaking havoc at the box office, let’s take a look at where the rebellion first began!  This badass scene shows Caesar finally standing up and inspiring his fellow primates around him to do so themselves.  I love the way the score swells up before the first word ever spoken by any ape rings throughout the sanctuary.  We as the audience sit in the silence that follows, mirroring the looks of astonishment from both man and ape, and it still gives me chills to this day.
