Featured Video Play Icon

Hold on to your butts! Check out the latest Kong film in this week’s featured film review   Review Summary: Kong: Skull Island is an epic action film in the traditions of the classic B-movies of the 50’s and 60’s.  Only, Kong takes those traditions to the next level and then some.  Anchored by a phenomenal and hilarious performance by John C.

At the height of Monster Movie Mania in the 1950s and 60s, two juggernauts dominated the hierarchy of the Giant Movie Monster Universe.  On top of one mountain reigned King Kong, from the United States via Skull Island.  Atop the other peak, Godzilla, hailing from Japan.  The Japanese claimed Godzilla was “King of the Monsters” but Kong reigned long before the atom bomb woke Godzilla from his slumber.  Thanks to Toho in Japan, we got the answer to the question everyone in the world […]

Trailer Breakdown: Kong: Skull Island – Final Trailer

King Kong

With just over a week until Kong: Skull Island hits theaters, the final trailer has dropped, and it’s the best one yet. The trailers primary focus: Action and Kong kicking some serious ass. The trailer opens up letting you know that this is a movie that takes place in the 1970s.  First, we meet our hero, played by Tom Hiddleston, in a dive bar full of neon lights telling curious scientists they will likely die going to some uncharted island.  Then, the classic rock song channels the Vietnam feeling as Huey helicopters fly towards the setting sun.  It’s an obvious homage […]
