Yesterday was my 38th Wedding Anniversary! What did we do? Well, there was a snowstorm, so we went to the movies. Doesn’t everyone? Giggles.
We saw the new King Kong – Kong: Skull Island! I’ve never been into Kong myself feeling it more like a guy movie, but I wanted to go for him. Isn’t it always the way, ladies? We do lots of things just because the guy in our life wants them.
This new movie massively surprised me. Yes, there are still all the elements that appeal to the guys but so much more. It was a fun movie, and I loved the characters. I have to confess my favorite was John C. Reilly, who played the WWII airman that had crash landed on the island. The movie starts as the war in Vietnam is ending. John Goodman represents a company that wants to explore this uncharted island, but he’s going to need a military escort. That tell you something right there.
I loved a lot of things about this movie and don’t want to spoil it for you. The actors were great, the effects wonderful, and this giant ape was the best Kong ever. I never cared for the others at all. There were serious and yet funny moments which is rare for “monster” films. I especially loved that it wasn’t just the same old Kong movie, if you go, you’ll know exactly what I mean.
On our anniversary, my husband and I wanted to see a fun movie, and this is fun. I give it 5 stars of fun! I’d give my husband 5 stars too. Giggles.
