Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★★½

Objectively not very exciting but what is pretty interesting is the total cartoon Vietnam stuff. I've never seen that conflict aestheticized in quite this way before, a total pastiche of images concerning a time period now old enough to feel like a fantasy for a young geek-demo filmmaker. It's like the 80's nostalgia thing but applied to this incredibly destructive piece of history. So weird.
