When the Kings Collide, it’s on in ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ (Review)

The path to the epic showdown between Godzilla and Kong in this MonsterVerse has not exactly been the smoothest road. All three movies leading up to this point have dealt with issues within the asphalt of said road. Godzilla didn’t show enough of everyone’s favorite lizard, Kong: Skull Island was not seen in the same light as Peter Jackson’s take on the giant ape (though I beg to differ), and Godzilla: King of the Monsters showed too much fighting in the dark, making it difficult to see exactly what was happening. Let’s also not forget that all three of these movies to varying degrees had human character problems due to script issues. And coming into Godzilla vs. Kong, I had some reservations considering how disappointed I was with King of the Monsters and how this film was being directed by someone who has made two of the worst movies I’ve seen in the past five years (one of which you can read about here). However, despite all this, Godzilla vs. Kong shows us what we’ve all been waiting for leading up to this film. While the human character issues remain a problem, when the two titans collide, it’s shown in such grand fashion that it causes pure excitement, and that alone is worth the price of admission rather than merely watching it from the comfort of your home.

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]

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
