It was a distinct possibility that this week was going to be a war of words between your hosts over Kong: Skull Island (SPOILERS!), but no, as it turns out the movie is pretty damn good no matter what your cinematic bent. This isn’t the 25 foot, Pete Jackson Kong either. This is a 100 foot chain-swinging, spear-throwing, body crushing version. And thanks to some pretty impeccable film making, every moment is awesome.
Meanwhile, in The Watch List, Kurt got to hang with the new Xavier Dolan film, It’s Only the End of the World, checked out the much lauded documentary on race in america, I am Not Your Negro and watched Walter Hill make another run at The Warriors. Andrew watched Robert Redford and Susan Sarandon flying WWI bi-planes and then Chris Pratt and J-Law chasing the stars in Passengers (It is like a 4-hour version of the opening credits to “Star Trek: Enterprise). Some more goodies in here so check it out.
Drop the needle on a John Fogerty track and strap into the Helo for a thrill ride.
As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
