Movie Review: Kong Skull Island (2017) *Kong’s Island is Hollow*

Coming out of last year’s Comic Con, I thought Kong Skull Island was the most impressive looking film of the bunch, and I had high hopes for cinema’s ape emeritus going into his first outing since the bloated mess that was Peter Jackson’s King Kong.  This film takes place in the MONARCH Universe (I’m not sure if there’s an official name) along with Gareth Edward’s Godzilla and the upcoming-wait for it-Godzilla vs. King Kong.  Like Godzilla, the film gets the monster right.  This is an interesting take on Kong, and one that does him justice.  The problem, like in Godzilla, are the humans surrounding him.

Brie Larson in The Glass Castle

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  Last weekend’s box office was the weakest of the summer yet, and unless you have a deep affinity for creepy dolls, this looks like a weekend to catch up on your TV as well.

Trailer Time: Kong Skull Island Trailer #3 (2017) *KONG!*

Well, if Kong: Skull Island accomplishes nothing else, it will have made some of the best-produced, most stylish, gorgeously cinematic trailers of recent years.  I really liked Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, but this looks ten times better and if it is, and they can make a showdown film between these monsters as epic as this looks….then we will have achieved true monster awesomeness.  Kong Skull Island is Film #2 in March Movie Madness 2017 and opens March 10, 2017.
