// "War! ((huh!)) ((yeah!)) What is it good for? APEsolutely nothing..." //
On this installment of MULTIMEDIOCRITY: The Broadcast!, Talley and Doofin are joined by film critic and film lover Blake Stubbs to discuss, dissect, and dispute the masterpiece-iness of two of this month's most evocative theatrical releases, Matt Reeves' powerful trilogy-closer WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES and Christopher Nolan's harrowing World War II tale DUNKIRK.
The guys also get hyped on a few 1980s-heavy highlights from San Diego Comic-Con, including Stranger Things season 2, THOR: Ragnarok, and the Spielberg-helmed adaptation of Ernest Cline's pop culture-soaked novel, READY PLAYER ONE. All that, plus some pondering on the future of Marvel and DC's respective cinematic universes, thoughts on the new lady lead of Doctor Who, and the invisible outrage surrounding that casting choice. "Apes. Together. Strong."
