Very Bad Wizards, episode 126: The Absurd. From the scatologically fascinating discussion on “oral illusions” at the beginning, to a review of Nagel’s essay on the absurdity of human existence, this was a great specimen of good podcasting. If you’re into that sort of thing, of course. ★★★★★

War for the Planet of the Apes. This is the 3rd movie in the modern re-imagination of the Planet of the Apes franchise. I had waited for some time for it to be available to rent, but the wait was completely worth it, IMHO. Still amazed by the quality of the CG in this movie — I was completely drawn into the story and taken in by the expressiveness of the apes’ faces. The plot, however, was a bit weak, but I feel that the quality of the CG and the almost constant action and fast pace almost completely hides the thinness of the story. ★★★1/2
