Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★★★

The Vietnam fetishization stuff is so weird and stupid that it kind of loops around to be being awesome. If nothing else it gives the movie something of an identity, which is what it needs when the cast of characters are this fucking bland (With the possible exception of John C. Reilly, who isn’t utilized well). Luckily the creatures, and the set pieces involving them make up for the awful human parts. Probably the best part of the movie is like the 1933 version how surprisingly graphically violent it is, again, pretty awesome stuff.
