Under The Scope | Movie Review: Dunkirk

In an unusual turn of events, the latest Scope Summer movie review is historical in nature (rather than super-hero, fantasy, or cartoon action.) This time around, Jared and Shane get to talkin’ about Chrstopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, a World War II epic if there ever was one.

It’s a risky film for a late July release…does that mean it’s not quite up to Oscar standards? Well, let your Scope hosts take you through a fantastic review to help you get all the answers!

The Scope Dunkirk review never expected an Agent Carter connection.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: War for the Planet of the Apes

Nothing makes a Scope summer movie review better than talking chimps. Luckily for Jared and Shane, the third (and final?) film in the Planet of the Apes reboot, War for the Planet of the Apes, is in theaters right now. Talk about an itch being scratched!

Starring Andy Serkis and Woody Harrelson, this grim special effect extravaganza tries to answer this question once and for all: Can smart monkeys beat not-so-smart humans in a fight to the end?

Well, take a listen to your Scope hosts talk about that…and if this is a movie worth your hard-earned dollars.

The Scope War for the Planet of the Apes review loves a good Steve Zahn ape appearance.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: The Big Sick

Jared and Shane are back with another summer movie review. And it’s a film both your Scope hosts picked to be one they most wanted to see.

The movie is The Big Sick, the autobiographical story of how comedian Kumail Nanjiani met his wife, Emily. But it’s not your typical love story (you might have gathered that by the title of the film.) 

Does this film have what it takes to be one of the best movies of the summer…and year? Well, take a gander at the review and find out!

The Scope The Big Sick review never underestimates Ray Romano.
