Kong’s Actually in the Film: Kong: Skull Island (2017)

When I heard about Kong: Skull Island I thought, Warner Brothers is giving the kaiju genre a reboot. Okay, I’m in. Not that that’s a huge vote of confidence. I mean, who am I, right? Eschewing the self-deprecation, in saying I’m in I was just voicing my decision that I was willing to bet my $10 that Kong: Skull Island was worth 10 bucks. Still, my tastes favor big Hollywood blockbuster films, sometimes against my better judgement (can you say Transformers?). But… the trailer for Kong: Skull Island was intriguing: King Kong vs the US Army circa the Vietnam War. Thing is, quite often trailers are far better than the movies they are promoting.
