I hate to double post but, I guess nobody else saw any movies worth talking about in over a month?
I watched Kong: Skull Island and it is better than Godzilla: King of the Monsters and especially Godzilla (2014). The best thing is that the monster fights and the human stuff are well balanced and equally well developed. I do have two minor complaints, really tiny ones.
One, the movie does not raise the specter of racism, which is cool, we don't need a monster movie's hot take on Samuel L's character's struggle in 1970s america. Besides it's an alternate universe where King Kong exists so why not forget that racism is a thing for the run time of the movie? Cool great, but they did make a sexist joke within ten minutes of the movie starting. So this is a cool movie set in a world that doesn't other POCs but women are still expected to stay in the kitchen and not pursue a career in war photography? Just seems out of place.
Second, why did Brie Larson choose to touch the part of KK's nose where boogers drip out? That's just gross.
Also I watched Stalker (1979) and that was pretty good.
