Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★★★½

I honestly thought I was gonna hate this, but I had fun. Modern CG effects aside, it reminds me a lot of a 50s sci-if adventure movie, ala Creature from the Black Lagoon and Forbidden Planet. Tom Hiddleston goes full Charleton Heston here.

Some things:
- Larry Fong should shoot every blockbuster
- Is it possible that Brie Larson looks more beautiful with every film she appears in? Something to consider.
- John C. Reilly's performance is, like, 90% of what makes this movie work

I guess that's all I have to say.
