Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★★★½

If 1/2 the dialogue wasn’t shit & 1/2 the characters were developed just a little more this could've been a masterpiece

MUCH LESS subtle & effective than the Gareth Edwards film (which, admittedly, was quite rough around the edges), but extremely fun

GOD-Level visuals, amazing framing, great soundtrack, Reilly-Jackson-Whigham bring their A-game, Brie Larson😍, & an extremely strong allegory towards the reckless actions of the American War Machine

Definitely a weird decision to merge a B-Movie monster flick, a generic Island blockbuster, & Apocalypse Now, but, hey, it mostly fucking works
