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.
