Kong: Skull Island
5 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Forget Peter Jackson's odd moment trying to top the original or the highly underrated 1977 outing, this is pure camp and mostly huggable. Gripes with the script, bizarro moments that feel like potholes that should have been trimmed and an obvious LOVE of "Apocalypse Now" and "Tropic Thunder" aside...this is a fun B- creature feature. Slightly punch-drunk and silly, but married with the newest U.S. Godzilla - there is a strong chance they could
finally nail it. And, I must admit, the final moments of the film revolving around a homecoming got me in The Feels. Also, except for doubling up on the CCR, a fantastic soundtrack, especially the fucking Sabbath.

Well-crafted and brilliant CGI/motion capture. A satisfying closing chapter.

Baby Driver
Baby Driver (2017)
26 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Extraordinary. Incredible (real) car stunts, a stellar cast, taut script and a smokin' soundtrack. See this twice...

Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman (2017)

Better than the last two DC train wrecks, but not at Marvel-level yet. The screenplay was the most problematic - a mixture of feeling cliched and unfinished.

Dear Ridley Scott, please retire immediately and quit sullying your legacy. Go play polo with George Lucas. Go play with dinosaurs with Steven Spielberg. Just please, stop making these movies. (Signed) One Of Your Original Fanbase
