Ep. 331 - War for the Planet of the Apes, What Is It Good For?

• July 17th, 2017

Suppose they gave a War for the Planet of the Apes and nobody came? These are the questions we're asking ourselves on this week's episode of The B-Movies Podcast, where film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold try to figure out why everyone's calling War for the Planet of the Apes a masterpiece when it's probably the least interesting film in the whole 50-year franchise. Oh yes, we're going there. Strap in.

Also on this week's episode, Bibbs and Witney eulogize the late, great George A. Romero and Martin Landau, and review the new releases Lady Macbeth, Wish Upon and Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, which is just unbelievably freakin' awful, folks. Like... WOW.

• July 8th, 2017

It's been six months and 2017 has already been one of the weirdest years for movies on record, with some of the best movies of the year coming out in the first six months already, and some of the worst movies of the decade coming out in that exact same span of time.

Also this week, Bibbs and Witney review the latest blockbuster Spider-Man reboot, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the acclaimed new supernatural drama A Ghost Story. They also have a few NSFW words to say about this whole "post-horror" nonsense people are spewing online, and they also find time to read YOUR limericks, which you've been sending us for weeks!
