M. Scott Morris (9:49) joins Derek and Brad on today’s episode to review “War for the Planet of the Apes.”
Scott said the third movie in the reboot trilogy of the sci-fi classic is both very intense and very funny. It also has sweet, tender moments that set you up for grief, but also bring you into the story. Overall the movie is a dark ride, but a worthwhile one, Scott said, with good acting and seamless special effects.
Also on today’s show, food editor Ginna Parsons (18:35) reviews this week’s food section. The Cook of the Week is New Albany High School student Mikael-Olivia Knowlton, who has learned to cook without wheat, soy and artificial ingredients. Instead, Knowlton uses things like honey, coconut oil and almond milk.
Ginna also shares a recipe for country-style fried corn. She said it was a cross between creamy and fried.
Derek (27:19) has the highlights of the weekend entertainment scene. Elvis Tribute Artist Travis LeDoyt has a fundraiser concert for the Tupelo Elvis Fan Club. Tupelo Community Theatre Off Broadway has a production of “Love, Loss and What I Wore.” Also, “The Lego Batman Movie” will be shown at Ballard Park, and the first Horror Con of Mississippi will be held at the Tupelo Furniture Market.
