The Cinemaholics have two big movies to review in full on this episode, first with War for the Planet of the Apes and then The Big Sick, which both hit theaters this week. The latter is Matt Reeves’s conclusion to the Planet of the Apes prequel reboot trilogy, which has been one of the better blockbuster franchises in recent years. As for The Big Sick, it’s the highly anticipated and acclaimed romantic comedy from Kumail Nanjiani and Emily Gordon.
But that’s not all the Cinemaholics discuss, of course. Will Ashton takes some time to unpack his thoughts on Lady Macbeth during Mini Reviews, and both Will and Jon Negroni talk about A Ghost Story from A24. Finally, Maveryke Hines shares his experience watching Netflix’s recent standup comedy series, The Standups, along with a full-length comedy special that’s now streaming.
