In this podcast, we're talking about "War for the Planet of the Apes", in which director Matt Reeves and stars Andy Serkis and a bunch of other CG monkeys are so incredible that you end up rooting against your own human species.
Andy Farnsworth, Tysen Webb and Aaron Zundel talk about what they liked about movie (hint: a LOT)--even though Tysen hadn't seen it yet (no spoilers outside what is in the trailers). Andy hasn't seen the first two movies in the trilogy. It leads to an interesting discussion to why the "Planet of the Apes" films keep getting made and what is it about the story that speaks to us.
In War for the Planet of the Apes, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.
The movie stars Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Amiah Miller, Karin Konoval, Judy Greer & Terry Notary
