Episode #233 – “Dunkirk” & “War for the Planet of the Apes”

Dunkirk of the Apes

Christopher Nolan’s films are always an event. Whether it’s a Batman movie or a movie about rival magicians, a Nolan flick is definitely worth tuning in for…and “Dunkirk” is no exception! His latest film is a true-life war epic and by golly, it’s his shortest film yet! That can only mean one thing…the tension will be at 11 for essentially the whole movie. We also review “War for the Planet of the Apes” this week…yes a dual-review episode! What a time to be alive.
