    Wait Jing Tian is in this? She's the girl from The Great Wall.

    I'm in. Yes, I'm that easy. :)

    Seen it and I liked it. It's a straight up action movie. Pretty cool to see Kong in his element

    Have to stay for the end credits

    I've seen it twice now I liked it but I didn't like the look of the bad guys the skull walkers or whatever they're called. It just bugged the heck out of me that they don't seem to have any hind legs they are dragging on their tails? Just didn't seem to make any evolutionary sense, why would they develop that way?

    I actually wished it hadn't been set in the 70's too but it had to be if the movie is going to have a WW2 link, the guy would have been in his 80's or 90's if the movie was set in 2016.

    Yeah didn't like the skull things either. Thought they were designed stupidly.

    In a van...down by the river.
    Finally got around to this. Didn't love it but i liked it.

    Mild two year old spoilers ahead....




    Interesting choices. My favorite choice being the no beauty & the beast plot. That's a TIRED element at this point. Also liked the 70's time drop. I couldn't wait for Samuel L. Jackson's death. I'd be fine with never seeing him in a movie again. He has the acting range of a rat fart. Angry badass who's a bit crazy. Check.

    The '76 Kong is still my favorite but i liked this one more than Jackson's '05 Kong. The '33 original stands alone of course.

    In the end it's just another CGI fest reboot but i liked that it at least tried to tell an old story with some new imagination.

    That helo attack...NICE

    I think the '76 Kong was the first film I saw when we got HBO in the early 80s. That and Popeye seemed to always be on.

    I get kinda bored with the fight scenes in movies like this, but these weren't too bad. Overall a solid reboot.
