Kong: Skull Island ★★★½

Not sure I understand the overwhelming distaste for this one. It was pretty fun despite the fact that you had a cast of disposable human characters.

The effects were effective, Kong looked great, and the battles were pretty brutal.

But going back to the characters, which despite a lot of efforts, I simply didn't care about even when a backstory, a feeble as it was, was attempted to be constructed.

But overall, everyone needs to chill, because this one really isn't that bad, and this is coming from a guy that hates fun and hates people having fun.
