Kong: Skull Island – Great action scenes; King Kong is Badass [Review]

Kong: Skull Island – Great action scenes; King Kong is Badass [Review]

I’ve never seen a King Kong film, this was my first taste of the franchise, and I must say I’m fond of him.  I mean I know about the original – King Kong goes to Big City and ends up climbing a building and swatting aircraft with one hand while holding Fay Wray in the other (that might not be right, like I said I haven’t seen it) but now I’m tempted to go back and watch it.  Kong:  Skull Island is really a lot of fun.

Kong: Skull Island – A Rip-Roaring Action Adventure Fit for the King of the Apes [Review]

Kong: Skull Island – A Rip-Roaring Action Adventure Fit for the King of the Apes [Review]

It has been just 12 years since we last saw the King of the Apes in director Peter Jackson’s three-hour epic, King Kong. For what it’s worth, the monster movie about a ginormous gorilla Jackson gave audiences back in 2005 worked great as a dramatic piece. But now, Kong is back, but in an action-oriented reboot connected to Legendary Studios’ monsters universe, which began back in 2014 with the critically praised reboot of Godzilla. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ version of King Kong in Kong: Skull Island results in a thrilling action romp that boasts an all-star cast full of colorful characters that feature their own sense of humor. And on top of that, Kong: Skull Island is also just a fun, movie going experience, watching monsters clash with each other in grand fashion on the big screen. Read more

10 Cloverfield Lane: John Goodman is Terrifying as a Conspiracy Nut Living The Realization of His Nightmares [Review]

10 Cloverfield Lane: John Goodman is Terrifying as a Conspiracy Nut Living The Realization of His Nightmares [Review]

I’m not really a fan of suspense.  I think if the only thing that carries you through a movie is not knowing what will happen, then is it really a good movie?  I mean having seen what happens, knowing how it turns out, will I want to watch this again?  Still there’s something about that first viewing when you really don’t know.  Director Dan Trachtenberg did a hell of a job; I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.   Of course, with Bad Robot, suspense comes with the territory.  10 Cloverfield Lane feels like it was directed by JJ Abrams.

Love the Coopers: A Well Cast Emotional Sugar Rush That Came Too Soon [Review]

It seems a little early for Christmas films, doesn’t it? I’m not partial to family dramas or holiday films.  But this week it was either Love the Coopers or The 33, and I was simply not prepared to watch trapped Chilean miners for 2 hours.  Still, I have to say I had a great time.  Maybe I was tired, maybe I’m a sentimentalist at heart (despite all evidence) but I loved this movie and was glad I went to see it.
