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!

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!

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