Kong: Skull Island

I have mixed feelings for this film. I went in not caring that much about it — not many expectations, but hoping for a fun adventure movie. I liked that it wasn’t a modern setting (first the 40s, then the 70s), and so things started pretty good, but then I kept getting annoyed by a lot of the editing (music video type sequences, slo-mo cut in a staccato manner) as well as extreme color-correction, which I don’t necessarily mind if it fits a mood (especially for night sequences), but I hate it when it makes a day sky look too yellow-y. It did get pretty fun during the action sequences, especially the monster-on-monster stuff. It looks like they’re planning on bringing in more monsters for the sequels (Godzilla, Mothra, etc.) which could end up being pretty fun, especially if they get a different director.
