Finally got around to watching Kong: Skull Island.

Had a lot of fun with it, might be my favorite version of Kong to date. John C Reilly really put it over the top for me.

I’m not sure what it would be but I’d take a Planet of Apes/Kong crossover over a Godzilla/Kong crossover any day

Monkey King 3 ( 2018 )
The Monkey King trilogy ends with this excellent film. My understanding is tat the stories picked for the three movies are the most popular chapters from the novel. But it makes no sense to end on a trilogy that does not cover the conclusion of the epic story it is telling. A couple of other complaints. The previous film ended on a sort of cliffhanger with the Buddhist monk the Monkey King was escorting to the West turned to stone in a sort of cliffhanger. This movie picks up several chapters later, so no explanation as to how the cliffhanger was resolved, or why the monk is once again flesh and blood. My other complaint is that in this film the Monk is the center of the story while the Monkey King is relegated to supporting character. Otherwise, a thrilling CGI adventure.


Licence To Kill ( 1989 )
Like I said, my all time favorite James Bond film. Eon had finally worked out a deal that allowed them to make Bond films that were not adaptions of the books. You can tell that it was heavily influenced by Die Hard ( 1988  )

At the time, it was easily the most violent James Bond movie. I would even dare say it was the most violent entry in the entire series until Casino Royale in 2006.

Well that was an emotional roller coaster, but a very good ride.

Death To 2020

It's got a lot of great stars in it, made by the same people that do Black Mirror so the humor is a bit on the dark side.
It's not hilarious, more like lots of small laughs.
