Kong: Skull Island ★★★★

I am one of the only people alive who will admit to enjoying Peter Jackson's "King Kong". And the best part of that movie is all the giant monster mayhem that happens on the island previous to bringing Kong to New York. And this movie is basically that, minus a lot of Jacksonian pretension.

But I can't understand how this movie isn't called Apocalypse Kong. That one was a gimme.
