Kong: Skull Island

Emmy says:
To use a quote from the movie – it really does show that you can always find monsters if you go looking for them. A good story with great visuals. The fight sequences were very well done. 8/10.

Jeff says:
It’s a cliché in many monster movies that the worst monster is man. This movie serves us that homily in spades. The characters (even the bad ones) are well-realised and very believable, the creatures are amazingly details and show intelligence (even if just animal instinct). I made the point to Emmy that the fights between giant monsters in this movie were more believable than the ones between humanoids in Justice League (she agreed). This is a worthy prequel to Godzilla and I’m curious to see how the “Monsterverse” develops from here. 8/10.
