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.

Warcraft: Unapologetically Made for Fans of The Game But Stunning From Beginning to End [Review]

Warcraft: Unapologetically Made for Fans of The Game But Stunning From Beginning to End [Review]

I try to never check out other ratings or reviews for the movie I’m going to see but this time I knew that Warcraft was rated relatively low.  I went though, partly because I’d played the game and partly because the trailer made it look amazing.  I didn’t have high hopes for this film.  So imagine my delight when it turned out to be Not Horrible.  That’s right – NOT horrible.  Though I have to admit, so much of why I liked it turned out to be recognition.  Anyone who has played the games will have a completely different experience than those whose first exposure will be this movie.  Sorry in advance to those of you reading this review who haven’t played the game- this review, like the film, isn’t really going to be as good for you.
