Its no news that Legendary Entertainment launched the MonsterVerse, a cinematic universe of iconic movie monsters in film. As part of its eventual Godzilla vs. King Kong endgame, the Kong franchise gets a modern reboot starting with an origins story – Kong: Skull Island.
Kong: Skull Island is a typical yet satisfying creature feature – big, loud, silly and entertaining if you don’t expect anything past its visual effects.
Your Name (Kimi no Na wa) has the charm and artistry of Studio Ghibli, but its crippled by poorly defined characters, underdeveloped narrative and misguided plot.
John Wick: Chapter 2 is a worthy follow-up to the original with its well choreographed stunt work, stylish action sequences, comic book styled narrative, and solid performance from Keanu Reeves, building a memorable franchise that’s more than just a typical shoot’em up property.
