Kong: Skull Island....spoilers
The trailers were great, each one topped the last, but i feared the film would suck? Did it? Hell no, it was pretty awesome? Was it better than the original? Hell no, was it better than Peter Jackson's? Hell no, but it was better than 76 and its sequel. The cast is having a great time, and i highly enjoyed the characters, John C. Reilly steals the show, he is great in this! The story, is pretty much a man on a mission flick, set to look like Apocalypse Now, the imagery, the soundtrack, the tone of the soldiers, it all fits! The soundtrack, i should mention, is great, it compliments the entire flick. Now this flick is about King Kong, and he looks great in this! The other monsters all do aswell, they even throw in a giant bug scene, bugs freak me out, it wasn't quite as effective as the Jackson bugs but it still looked cool. I loved the backstory of Reilly's characters and the natives. The battles were all well done, but the best part is after the credits. the stinger, holy hell! Now i wasn't a big fan of the last American Godzilla but showing him, Mothra, Rodan, Ghidorah, made me super fucking stoked! Bring on the Kaijus! Bring on Pacific Rim! I am stoked!
