Opens with an American spacecraft crash landing on what is believed to be another planet. Where humans are considered to be animals and eight rule the world. The audience -- that movie and I was among them. We start and at the ending win there's a scene with the top of the statue of liberty. Sticking crooked. Out of the shoreline. Which meant that the -- the American astronauts. Had actually landed on earth in the future. In the future apes rule the land. This is not that far in the future. Now all of the planet the apes movies since 1968 have had -- the profound messages and the Jewish people don't of the planet of the -- as a strong message about humankind. Again this is not as for the future and it's at the original planet of the -- but he still said it in the future. With all the intensity. Concerning the gun control gun rights debate in America. I pushed really shocked were sort of watching this movie and picked up on a real powerful anti gun message. In dawn of the planet of the -- I'm surprised that there wasn't more. Set about this quite often before movie comes out as somebody has seen a preview of it. And they just start blasting the move before it's a political overtones. I am really surprised that nobody so. Maybe somebody wrote about this and talked about it but I didn't read it see it or or here. But there's a very powerful anti gun message -- on the planet of the apes. It's an anti gun message. But it's a message more about. How humans use guns. How humans need guidance. Rather than meets the promotion of stricter gun control. In don't have -- plan to -- the majority of the human population has been wiped out by simian virus. After experiments debt advanced the brain some apes escape the laboratories where humans experiment on them. And form their own civilized society in the forced outside of San Francisco. There's a small colony of humans that live near the decimated -- Cisco area. They venture out into the woods and attempt to restart a power player to restore limited power to the city. On their mission into the forest we humans encounter the apes. And they're stunned. By the heat's ability to communicate. -- talk. And the gates are shocked and threatened by the presence of humans because they know humans have guards. There's fear and if -- distrust. Between the apes and humans on on on both sides. And really that's a kind of a metaphor for current -- tensions in the world today. Did you see -- of the planet of the apes what message did you get from the movie if you are join us with a comet this morning -- numbers 2601870. Toll free 8668890. Point seven. And a text amber is a 7870. Beyond the age however in -- of the planet of the apes are more civilized in humans. And -- promote the idea that apes do not kill apes like humans. Kill humans. Beers a test of the eight civility very early in the story -- a human shoots and kills a young eight. And a very sound of a gunshot. Was so foreign to the society of tapes. That they immediately reacted with with fear of humans with guns threatening their their peaceful world. Some of the -- demanded revenge and expressed hate for humans. And humans were fearful of the possibility of an invasion by the apes. There were some tapes that tried to promote a peaceful coexistence. And VH live by this idea that -- don't kill each other. Humans do and to me that center and a strong message about. About humans. Win. A human says it's. To another that just the slightest -- makes him sick to his stomach. The audience immediately is drawn into this judgment -- judgment that is is really part of the world we live in today. -- of the planet of the -- really does illustrate the flaws in in humanity. What stood out to me most was the obvious message that humans need guns. And the humans. Read all the -- because the -- did -- guns they need -- point reporting out. They don't they don't have guns they don't need -- like it's something or -- I can't believe they do all they do with just spears. Gods were not part of their society so I think this was the strong anti gun message but again it wasn't about controlling the sale distribution or the availability of guns. It was more about. Why human beings. Need guns and the willingness to use guns against each other. In order to protect their society the apes did -- -- be human colony. Which used to actually set to on common street near to a link here in New Orleans but the movie is set in in San Francisco. It was also interesting to pick up on who was to blame for the world that existed in the movie. Some of the apes that had been research facilities and -- experimented on by humans. They were bitter resentful and they wanted revenge against the humans for treating them that way. Some of the humans blamed the -- for the simple virus that destroyed most of humanity. Now. The -- that had due to live in in research captivity obtained a gun from a human and shot another eight. It was promoting peace so you know I can just think of numerous people throughout history. Who had been shot. And killed. Because they stood for peace. That eight was acting more like a human than an -- in the movie. There were some tapes that hated humans because they would subjective experience but the general message wise. That humans do not forgive. And apes in general. Are more compassionate. And this was one of outstanding. Messages to me in the movie. That. Animals. Are more compassionate. Than humans. Animals don't murder. Animals don't hate. Animals don't judge. Animals don't need guns to maintain a civilized society. They need less technology. And yet. We issue means. Seemed to need those things. We hate we merger. So based on this movie you know the next time someone tells you your acting like an animal. I take it as a compliment. Did you see -- the planet of the -- A lot of people saw this weekend as one of the top movies at the box office what was your impression the movie and in my the only one who got a message out of this movie about about guns and about humanity.

Character wise costume makeup wise it was brilliant it's a science fiction movie and I'm not a science fiction. -- I've admitted that that's not my favorite genre but I love this movie does especially because there were so many great messages it. And one of the strong messages to me was a strong anti gun message which aren't surprised I didn't hear about before the move. Here is a Texan reads it showed the movie showed showed -- humans have the false sense of security. When carrying a weapon. It was also about fairly struggles and similarities of man an eight. Trust was also talked. And it was also very much about judgment. And how there are some people who don't judge has some people who were highly criticized. Because they don't -- they're people who were criticized because they want peace. And -- we have a history in this country of denouncing people and in some cases killing people. Who stand for peace. Here is Texan -- to stop telling us the movie plot -- this is this is like watching a trailer I don't believe I'm really exposing anything about the movie that would cautioned not wanna see it. But tonight to talk about movies that I see. I'm being careful not to reveal any of the intricate to story lines but if and if this is your philosophy that you don't wanna hear anything about a movie that I would suggest that you would not look at previews or. Complain about just seeing the trailer. Here is attacks of people were killing each other before guns. It's if something comes out.

I'm scoot him for Garland here's another WL news updates with Chris Miller. We are expecting a stormy day in New Orleans -- throughout south Louisiana and south Mississippi in the rain has it hit the immediate New Orleans downtown area yet but there's a rare July cold front moving in this direction. There is some rain and I've already got some -- of people that say please tell people to turn on their headlights. In the rain. It just amazes me that some people will get behind the wheel of the car. And not turn on their headlights and some won't turn their headlights that turn on their flashing lights which is also the wrong thing to do.

Point seven your tax receipts have creativity. -- talking about this movie that I thought was a profound movie -- of the planet of the -- have much of it was shot in New Orleans -- you wouldn't know blades seeing it in the movie if you if you know the buildings you'll recognize a few buildings. But it was an elaborate sets on common street. And I guess this would be dismissed before two inevitably it's it's the best way to describe scifi fans will love dawn. Because of it the scifi on the giants but if you're not a scifi fan I thought there was a lot of a lot of important messages in the movie. And the the scifi aspect of the movie doesn't really distract from what is an amazing story about. About humanity. Here is attacks that reads Escude I think you're over reaching with the anti gun thing but other than that I agree with most of your blog. And the scope blog is on our website at -- if you -- icon it's titled apes movie had its powerful. Messages about human nature. Here's a text at the message of the movie was guns don't kill people do. And when I say there's an anti gun message in the movie I was very clear to say that it's not about gun control. It's about. The need that humans have for guns. It did we are that so many of lesser evil we need guns to protect ourselves from each other. And with the movie pointed out to be from a philosophical standpoint -- Here we have these these animals. In the force the -- And they were more civilized than humans. They didn't have guns they do need guns. They didn't have power. They do need power and -- accountant about the technical power electricity. And and beat the humans were in all that they could get along without the power. I mentioned earlier that animals don't murder and a -- a couple of text about this saying that that's that's absurd. Ever watched a cat they don't always eat what they kill. That's true. But in general animals don't don't murder. Here's a text to say animals don't murder is ludicrous a -- line. Wind. Taking pride. We'll kill. The dominant male and all of the cops kill not eat that's murder to me. Well I understand that but it's it's. It's out of an instinctive protection. There's not there's not a motivation of of hate the way the region in human beings. And that's the main thing that I'd I got from the movie. Here's attacks the movie sucks downtown New Orleans is just like the movie I've received the number of Texas a downtown new worlds is just like the movie I don't know whether these people. Have actually seen the movie and I don't know if they've actually been downtown. Anytime recently. If you wanna join us for the comet are numbers 2601870. Toll free 8668890. -- seventy. And a text number is 87870. Here's a -- believe that Jimmy Graham led the NFL touchdown so how was that not a good year but he did have a great year but. That there were a lot of times it. Jimmy Graham didn't seem and again maybe this was due to his injury but there were plenty times that we talked after game about. Jimmy Graham and missing passes. And and he was a great player I'm glad the saints came to this this decision I didn't think there was any doubt. I think -- Jimmy Graham had not signed the agreement with the saints if they had not reached an agreement that would have been very pretty big news but I think most and who dat nation. Figured that this was going to be a done deal. But it still came down to the last minute. The deadline which 3 o'clock today and it was announced this morning you know deepen their hearts and minds the saints in -- brand over the gonna come to an agreement. But it's human nature to drag things out to the deadline. Here is a text -- check out the murders in this country 32000. Total from guns most from suicide. I don't see how that impacts of what we're talking about. There are people who are so sensitive to. Two guns and the gun issue. Then if I saved to the movie points out an anti gun message because humans. Are the ones who need guns. That's that's really addressing the evil. In humans and it's not about gun control.

Trust that there was also an interesting scene where an an infant eight bonds with with the human. And I think the message there is that the eight had not yet learned to fear humans. Meaning that. Prejudice is something that is learned. He's talked. And saw that there were a lot of just really really good messages -- in the movie and since the animals were more civil than. The humans.

Humans are include it. I'm just saying the movie made me look it up LO well. Here's a Texas saw the movie this past weekend and enjoyed it however might take on the movie was a little different from viewers humans and animals have a capacity for cruelty. Have you considered grizzlies. Lions tigers and dogs for that matter that stalk and attack humans. If you find yourself in that situation a gun. Might be needed. But. If you go into their territory. Then you might be affected them and they would be territorial. And that's why they would attack. I don't know effects that there -- -- although I've I've got an update here that it baboons in chimpanzees in and some members of the -- family. Are known to have calculated to commit murder. Over. I'm on a mate so I guess it would be domestic violence. Related. So. I guess some I mean obviously some animals do but for the most part animals don't carry hate with a they kill out of necessity. They kill to -- and again there will be some exceptions. But what I got out of the movie wise. It's humans that need to have guns because some of us are so evil we need to protect ourselves against our own. And to me that was just kinda sad that was the big the big contrast and to be the big message in the movie. Dawn of the planet of the -- again I thought it was an excellent will be much of it was done here nor was so you really would recognize it.
