A crowd-pleasing action extravaganza, "Skull Island" homages not just the original "King Kong" and other monster movies from its time, but classics like "Apocalypse Now" as well.

Should have just titles this Apocalypse Kong - but I actually liked the Vietnam War era setting. The cast is fun to watch, especially John C. Reilly as a WWII pilot who has been stuck on the island of misfit monsters for a few decades and Brie Larson as the anti-war photographer. Still, it's fun to see all the actors do their thing, even if it's a bit one note. Obviously a set up for the big Kong/Godzilla mashup, but a good time none-the-less.

"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 interviews, he knows what he's talking …

"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.
"Kong: Skull Island" contains a number of successful …

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...
