Geek Movie MiniReview: Kong: Skull Island
Kong: Skull Island was, for me, a delight. It knows it’s a giant monster movie with roots in grindhouse and pulp, and it isn’t embarrassed about that at all. But it also sees the benefit in things like characterization, story, pacing, and development.
I clapped with childhood glee, laughed, cried, and gasped. I am exactly the target audience for this.
In my binary digit-based review system, it gets a thumbs up.
