This time, we’re concluding our look into the Planet of the Apes reboot trilogy and War for the Planet of the Apes and along the way we ask, is this a war film or a sci-fi film, is this more like Heart of Darkness or Bridge on the River Kwai and what’s the future of this franchise? Let’s dive in…

On this episode, we examine how charismatic and devious Woody Harrelson’s character is, how Caesar is betraying the central tenets of his existence, how a sci-fi film manages to also be a war film, how Caesar’s legacy can live on after his community finds peace, how we can avoid the world depicted in these films and why this trilogy managed to be overlooked year after year.

Listen to the full episode for Sean and Chris’ choices of Lens Flares, Red Shirts as well as a new entry for This Week in Toxic Fandom and our rating.
