Surprise, surprise another Tuesday is upon us. As promised last week war is coming and by war I mean War for the Planet of the Apes. Shockingly there is no steelbook or limited edition available.

Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless colonel (Woody Harrelson). After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both of their species and the future of the planet. – 20th Century Fox

This year has been a really good year for movies. War for the Planet of the Apes is one of my favorite movies of the year. In my opinion this is the best one of the trilogy, the magnum opus. Many movie goers were unhappy with the lack action in a movie with war in the title but War for the Planet of the Apes is so much more. This movie has heart, a whole lot of it. This movie is beautifully written and shot. There’s barely any humans in it but who cares the apes are better than humans. Honestly this may have been one of the most emotional movies of the years. Matt Reeves made a masterpiece, something I’m certain many people wouldn’t expect to be used to describe a Planet of Apes film. One last thing, Andy Serkis absolutely deserves a best actor nominee after this movie.
