Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★★★

This works as a B movie monster fest that seemed fresh but predictable.  I wish more time was given to some of the great Island monster designs, they all felt added for a quick narrative device or target practice.  The cliche 70’s music set to the Vietnam war a blaring out of helicopters felt a tad heavy handed after the 5th or 6th track.  Side note: can anyone actually survive a helicopter crash like the ones depicted in the first Kong encounter?
