Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★★★★

the sheer antipathy that this gets on here is pure cope tbh, this is basically if zack snyder did a kaiju film and if i had my way i'd give jordan vogt-roberts a blank check to direct a million movies like this. stupidly cruel, fully-realized concept art, so violent that it barely qualifies as PG-13, paced like a freight-train, has a good understanding of how to thread-in lame needledrops and compose the geography of action scenes, feels like it was made by someone who actually watched a fucking kaiju movie and comprehended what makes them good.

giant monkey smash helicopters; what the hell else do you want?
