Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★★★½

Surprisingly a very beautiful looking movie, I also loved the Vietnam war aesthetic! The cast is great too, but the most compelling thing about most of the characters is the actors playing them, with the exception of John C. Reilly. The movie did have this sort of masochistic sense of humor to it though, where it would kill off characters that had actual motivations for surviving in favor of a quick shock/chuckle. I get that this is important for creating suspense and tension, but it didn’t always work for me.
