Kong: Skull Island - Review

"Kong: Skull Island" has it's moments of fun and being epic, but can somehow feel so small. Peter Jackson's "King Kong" was far superior than this and felt more grand in it's scale. The whole experience was kinda hollow.

Besides the characters being really one note; John C. Reilly was the best part of this movie. A real show stealer. I rather see a movie with Reilly's character being stuck on the island with Kong. I mean, nothing against the other actors, as they did the best for what's been written for them. I just couldn't care less when characters bite the dust.

The influences of "Apocalypse Now" and Spielberg movies, mostly "Jurassic Park", is an interesting mix. The director, Jordan Vogt-Roberts has a vision and when you hear him talk in ...

This is a clash of a lot of titans.

"I call them skull crawlers. Why? Cause it sounds unique."

Is there really nobody else wondering why the actresses in a King Kong movie are so attracted to this giant ape? Honestly, I'm always asking myself the same question. Is it because Kong "King of all places he appears in" is such an impressive appearance, radiating power and protection? Or is it its primitive nature? No idea! But that monkey has good taste in my opinion. In every movie he's looking full of desire at the lady in distress who crossed his path yet again. Now, these are always women who'll drive that primitive monkey bananas (how appropriate). Also in this new Kong movie, the lady who's being helped by the dreaded monkey, looks breathtaking and appetizing.

Good but not for all ages

I went to see the movie knowing that I was going to like it however I had just seen Logan last week and I will say that while the movie wasn't as good as Logan it was still pretty good full of adventure and action packed the humor was cute too just please parents keep this story in mind if you are concerning taking the family I saw a family of four having to exit the theater due to too strong of violence for the young kids they brought it really saddens me to know that lots of other people are probably going to make the same mistake please let the pg 13 rating tell you something this time it's not a good idea to have young children see the movie though I have to say As an adult I did enjoy it just please KEEP THE smaller kids out of the movie it could tromitize the poor children but I hav...

.....Monsters Exist....

Kong Skull: Island kicks off the 2017 blockbuster summer with a monster sized adventure with enough action and spectacle to satisfy popcorn audiences everywhere. The Lost World genre in its classic literal form is almost gone from cinema let alone popular culture. It has to be revamped in a high tech setting like Jurassic Park as an example. I applaud director Jordan Vogt-Roberts for playing the material straight and giving viewers what they want in spades all within a reasonable two hour running time.

But here we have an uncharted island untouched by the outside world for eons until an expedition backed by the US military stumbles upon its terrible secret: Kong, a 100 foot prehistoric ape who wrecks havoc on the explorers' team and strands them on the treacherous Skull Island. Worse ...

I have watched this movie. Simply awesome. Though the last one was better than this, this is also worth watching.

I just saw the new synopsis for Godzilla 2 (or Godzilla: King of the Monsters - whatever they decide to go with). Looks like a few friends are coming along for the ride...
