I don’t envy anybody making a Kong movie. The first one was a fantastic flick that told an untraditional love story. That love story hasn’t aged well, and when you remove it, you end up with a monster movie. 

I love monster movies. This one is misguided, though, and feels more like a strange riff on Apocalypse Now than it does a movie where the monster wins. Which is 100% what should happen.

Note: watched on a plane.
