IMDb: A team of scientists explore an uncharted island in the Pacific, venturing into the domain of the mighty Kong, and must fight to escape a primal Eden.

 

Quoting from the book The Off-Hollywood Film Guide by Tom Weiner, the visuals in any film are its most important component. But you don’t need to know this beforehand to see how magnificently made the movie Kong: Skull Island is because watching the film will hand you that truth so naturally.

It’s a formidable giant of nonstop eye-candy, it has some of the best gradient moments I’ve ever seen on film, fast-paced, never short of thrills, and boasts cool 70’s music. Also loved how certain parts of the film poked fun at usual film tropes such as self-sacrificing characters and the use of mindless hypocritical spiels that could change the minds of enemies.

Although I loved Peter Jackson’s 2005 remake of the 1930’s original film, I think this new version works more for me because they took out that beauty and the beast love angle and the Kong in New York part (which I never liked anyway cause it’s painful to watch and unnecessary for me).

Plus, man….you have got to catch that montage of Kong vs a rageful Samuel L. Jackson see eye to eye. If you haven’t seen it yet, go watch it now and have monster-movie fun. Long live the King!

 

FUN FACT: The Mother Longlegs spiders could be a homage to the giant spider with crab claws that was cut from the original 1933 King Kong movie. Also the Skull Crawlers could be a homage to the two legged lizard that climbs up the side of the mountain in the original movie.

The Handmaid’s Tale Trailer (Official).

March 24, 2017

“Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values’. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.”
