Illinois readers, a question: is it fraud to raise the price of an item before a storewide sale begins?

Saw "Planet of the Apes", by Tim Burton. And I feel I'm not stepping too far out of line when I say it will take home at least one Oscar in March-Best Makeup. Which is not to say the makeup was the only point of quality-it's a damn fine film. Burton handles the material deftly, with a couple of (perhaps too clever?) asides to the audience that put you in mind of the first film-the second ape-spoken line, for example. The performances are, on the whole, good, with particular accolades due to Helena Bonham Carter as the preeminent pro-human ape. About the only thing I'm having trouble with-and at this point, it could be me-is the surprise twist ending. I'm not quite sure, logically, how it fits into the rest of the picture. But it's definitely worth seeing for yourself and making your own decision.
