The Breakdown of "War for the Planet of the Apes", "The Big Sick", "To the Bone", "Chasing Coral", "Pixels", and Remembering George A. Romero


It is a huge week on The Breakdown as we have five big movie reviews including the much anticipated final chapter to what is one of the best trilogies ever, War for the Planet of the Apes. We also review a modern comedy that is actually getting critical praise and tries something cutting-edge like being funny in The Big Sick. We also look at Netflix originals in To the Bone and Chasing Coral. As well, we pay tribute to the man who created an entire horror subgenre in the zombie movie, George A. Romero. As always if you love the show then please spread the word so we can grow and get even better.
