Kong: Skull Island

Film, 2017

This is nothing to write home about, but it’s a solid monster movie. Which is all I was hoping for, really.

The tone is the polar opposite of Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla — it feels fun instead of tense. That in itself is perfectly okay, but I wish it could have kept some of that Jurassic Park-like subtlety that worked so well for Godzilla.
