Okay, so I literally just watched this movie for the first time today at home and I have quite a bit to say about it. Some of it will be good, some of it will be bad, there will be a good mixture of the two on this movie. And by the way, there will be plenty of SPOILERS just to let you know ahead of time. So, with no further delay let me tell you what I thought about this movie.

Movie Review Flashback: My Review of ‘Kong: Skull Island’

Before King Kong and Godzilla duke it out in a battle of the ages next year here’s a look back at the second movie released by Warner Bros. highlighting these iconic monsters, Kong: Skull Island. Enjoy!

The Characters

First of all, I have no idea what the character’s names are.

I know there was Samuel L. Jackson who was the revenge-stricken captain.

Wow, ‘King Kong’ Is Kind of Good

Nearly three weeks ago I watched King Kong for the second time in my life. The last time I watched it I was probably eight-years-old and I don’t remember it much other than the fact that I cried at the end. Believe me, I did not cry this time.

Peter Jackson, who is clearly one of the greatest directorial minds of all time, tried to take his expertise with tantalizing epics and bring that know-how to the classic story of King Kong.
