    Seems like it will be as shitty as Godzilla 2014, maybe even more so...

    It depends what you want as it has the opposite problem of Godzilla 2014, too much monster action and no plot. It's full of pointless characters that did not need to even exist.

    Sounds good to me! I never expected much of a story from this in the first place, other than some folks get trapped on the island, get attacked and need to find a way off without getting killed by Kong and other creatures.

    So I did a video review. To be honest, I need to see it a second time before I can fully score it, especially because the first half hour SUuuuuuuuuuuuuucks! It is so poorly edited together.


    Oh, and I talked to the manager at my theater and he said not getting the post credit scene was an error on his part. He accidentally clicked on the Q&A stream to play too soon. As such, he offered to give us free tickets to see the movie again.

    Which Alamo Drafthouse location is that? I will likely see the film in IMAX, but if I really enjoy it, I will likely see it a second time at the Alamo. Was there a good pre-show?

    I loved Godzilla and from the looks of it I'll love this too.

    I liked Godzilla, and as long as this has enough monster fights, I can see myself liking this quite a bit.

    Unfortunately, there was no preshow due to it being an advanced screening.

    A worthwhile trade off. The QandA looks fun, but I haven't checked out much yet.

    Not trying to be spoiled by anything in here so I had to scroll to the bottom really quick, haha.

    Anyways, did anybody that's seen this get to see a new TLK trailer? I'm gonna see on next Tuesday, for 5 bucks, awesome!

    That was a pretty damn good film. It had some intense moments, some soft moments, and it surprised me quite a few times, which I both found delightful and became fearful of. The big battle between Kong and Ramarak was awesome, and the overall immensity of these creatures was damn cool. Human characters were decent enough, and I liked them enough to feel bad when they got their butts eaten.
    8/10
