This is so much better than I remember it being. I did not give this movie enough credit for being so weird and darkly funny.

That bit where Cole gets thrown into the side of the mountain when he’s trying to sacrifice himself.... so funny but also deeply tragic. Such a interesting moment where I don’t know whether to laugh or to genuinely feel bad and end up doing both.

I think it’s hilarious how Tom Hiddleston’s character would’ve been the lead in like any other movie, but this script was far more interested in all the “side” characters, with Hiddleston reduced to one of the smaller roles, only popping in to kick some ass every once in a while. For most of the movie the director just had Hiddleston & Brie Larson stand there and look hot.

Kong is so cute :) 
But I’m sorry, I’m absolutely rooting for Godzilla in the sequel.
