Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★★★

Some thoughts on this bad but ultimately fun movie:

-Bad, bad, bad dialogue
-So many sunsets/sunrises
-I will protect Kong for the rest of my life
-I will protect Brie Larson for the rest of my life
-Kong consistently has a thing for blonde, white women
-I love John C Reilly
-Samuel L Jackson hamming it up, like more than he usually does
-Toby Kebbell deserves better
-Thomas Mann is a cutie
-Beautiful cinematography
-Beautiful shooting location
-Half of the characters are unnecessary and are just bodies to be killed off
-I love the Straight Outta Compton cast and I wish O'Shea was in this movie with Jason and Corey
-That toxic gas scene has to be the worst thing I've ever seen I need Tom Hiddleston to calm down
-The first 30 mins of the film is basically Suicide Squad
-Very weird musical cues, good music though
-Kong really is the king and I can't wait for him to kill Godzilla

I went into this film with low expectations which made my viewing a lot more fun. I absolutely loved Kong in this film, more than Peter Jackson's Kong (which I loved too). The scaling was amazing. The scenery was unreal. The acting was pretty bad but who cares? Kong kicked some major ass.
