  1. On the subject of Godzilla, I guess since the 2014 one was the first Godzilla movie I’ve ever seen I was just expecting more of him. In fact, that was my only complaint. Anyways, Kong Skull Island was really good and really fun. I absolutely loved the part where Kong uses the propeller on a boat as a knuckle-duster/ball and chain. I don’t quite know what critics were talking about at times regarding how they didn’t like the characters. I thought that the character’s motivations were good. They had about 50/50 screen time with Kong. The movie looks great and that’s coming from someone who strongly dislikes the 70’s (AKA me). The 3D was great and really added to the experience. Plus, it had Tom Hiddleston in it. 😘 However, I’ll admit that the spider scene was too intense for me. It was only time I looked away. One last thing: The only other Kong movie I’ve seen is the Peter Jackson one but I liked this one slightly better and I’ve never seen Apocalypse Now.

  2. You just know that the HISHE for this one is going to involve Jackson calling in Capt. America, Iron Man, and Thor to stop Loki’s evil Kong-related scheme.
