Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★★★


The editing in this movie is so bad it's annoying. I actually really enjoyed this movie. It has some gorgeous cinematography, a great cast, and a mediocre story. Maybe if the editing wasn't so jarring I actually might have been able to enjoy it. Seriously, if it weren't for the horrendous editing this would've been an easy 3.5/4. On the bright side, one thing I really liked in this movie was the skullcrawlers. The character design is impeccable; those things are actually crazy terrifying. I also really enjoyed the cast. I love movies like this where every character is an A-lister. John C Reilly was one stand out performance as he was great in his role and managed to make me both laugh and well-up. I absolutely love the 70's setting and aesthetic that was chosen for this film. The only downside is that it means none of these characters will be able to return for Godzilla vs Kong, a movie I am very excited about, by the way.

Also, this movie reminded me how hot Brie Larson is so uh bonus points for that.

Reed liked these reviews
