    Loved it, but full disclosure - I'm a monster movie mega-fan, so this may be biased. Samuel Jackson never fails to deliver, and the supporting cast was very well chosen. I like that the movie is about King and remains about KONG - not forced into a social-lesson drama or a romance novel. It's about KONG. I watched it on an Ultra 4K tv, and the blu-ray did just fine. No loss of quality on special effects. If you like monster movies - you'll love it. If not, you'll like it enough to be entertained.

    I love watching 3D movies on my TV. I'm one of the lucky ones that still have a 3D tv. I do want a bigger tv but they don't make 3D tv's anymore. So I'm stuck with it until it dies! An LG 55"!I've had it over 7 years and still playing like new!Only difference you don't get updates anymore. But everything still works!

    The second installment in the "MosterVerse" Series is a nice blend of Drama, Suspense, Action, and Wise Cracks every couple of minutes. I recommend this flick 100%.

    Love the music in the movie, the monsters, and cast in this movie. Great film. Even more entertaining in 3D. Can't wait for Kong vs. Godzilla in 2021.

    Kong Skull Island is great and unique spin on the giant ape, especially compared to the 2005 film

    Kong is King

    Posted .

    Kong Skull Island is a fresh take on a familial movie property that actually gets it right. The film begins at the end of WWII, and then the story picks up at the end of the Vietnam war. The film centers around an expedition team whom several of its members have hidden agendas as to why they are there. The story is pretty straight forward, what you would expect from a monster movie. The monsters are what you came to see and they do not disappoint. The CGI is flawless. It is truly amazing to see the jungle scenes and all of the different creatures blended seamlessly together. The video and audio are top notch, while the special features are pretty decent as well. If you are looking for a demo worthy disc with a pretty decent story with a lot of action, I would highly recommend this movie

    DVD came in good condition and came 4 days earlier than expected. Amazing CGI. But story isn’t that captivated and not as much scenes with the human characters with Kong as I was hoping for.

    A well made, entertaining re-boot with sequels to

    |

    Chance of a spoiler. Well, I guess with this film and the recently released Marvel film, “Logan,” summer blockbusters have moved up to early March now. This story originated in 1933 with the RKO masterpiece that saved the studio from bankruptcy. This re-telling is different from a story line perspective but consistent with the idea. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has only one other big screen film to his credit. That was the excellent low-budget indie, “The Kings of Summer” (2013). Needless to say, he gets a lot more money to play with here. Bill Randa (John Goodman) and his science partner Houston Brooks (Corey Hawkins) have discovered a new island in the China Sea. It is constantly surrounded by violent storms and has never been explored. He needs money and approaches a U. S. Senator (Richard Jenkins) to get funding for an exploration. He also needs a military escort, not knowing what they might find. The film is set in 1973 as Nixon was closing the curtain on the Vietnam War. A gung-ho Lt. Colonel Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) isn’t too happy pulling out without winning, but is given the chance to lead this expedition. Randa also wants a “tracker” and enlists a former British special forces officer, James Conrad (Tom Hiddleston) for the job. A wartime photo-journalist named Mason Weaver (Brie Larson), goes along to document what they find. Things move along quite quickly as the ship, outfitted to carry several helicopters, closes in on the mysterious Skull Island. Unlike the original 1933 film and remake of 2005, we don’t have to wait long to see Kong. As the Huey’s break through the storm to a quiet tropical island, we’re reminded of “Apocalypse Now” but instead of “Flight of the Valkyries” we get some Credence Clearwater Revival. In fact we get a playlist of hits of the time throughout the movie including Jefferson Airplane, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, The Hollies, The Chambers Brothers and more. As the helicopters drop some seismic charges to the surface (to check the geology or something), it also stirs the 100 foot Kong to find out what’s what. Under Packard’s lead the helicopters charge the giant gorilla instead of retreating. Bad idea, the first of several by the delusional commander. While I had a hard time adapting to the fire-breathing Jackson as Packard, I had no problem with John C. Reilly as Hank Marlow. Marlow and his Japanese counterpart had nearly killed each other, having crashed on the island in the later part of WW II. They somehow survived, taken in by some natives. Marlow brings some needed comedic relief to the film. He also knows a lot about the island, something Packard usually dismisses. When asked about the high walls surrounding the village, Marlow says that it isn’t to keep Kong out. Kong is perceived as a god protecting them from the giant “skullcrawlers” who look like a light skinned, larger and quicker moving crocodile. Other various creatures tend to pick off the surviving crew as you might expect, which leads up to the epic battle between an already seriously wounded Kong and the largest of the skullcrawlers. And it’s a good one. Using a variety of special effects tricks, it all comes across realistically. And yes, there are moments of Kong’s loneliness and lack of a mate, especially when he confronts the beautiful photographer. Toby Kebbell gets some good moments as one of the military officers, injured and alone. Shea Whigham plays another Army grunt with a quick wit. Tian Jing plays San, one of the scientists. She isn’t given much to do but would appear to be bait for the Asian audience. The film isn’t perfect but it is much better than it could have been. The acting is very good and the action sequences are excellent. Recommended.

    Awesome Movie

    Posted .

    I am not a movie snob. When it comes to movies, I want to be entertained. This does not mean I do not like a good movie or a classic movie. I love them; however, after the work week, I want to to watch a mindless movie that will just entertain me, and Kong Skull Island is the type of movie that fits this criteria. It is an awesome movie. It is a paper-thin plot but the plot does not interest me in this type of movie. I bought this movie because I wanted to watch Kong break military toys and fight other monsters, and it does a great job delivering this. A movie like this could have backfired and this one did not. Even though I previously mentioned a paper-thin plot, this movie does have more plot than a regular monster movie and the characters are more developed than in other monster movies. The 4K presentation looks awesome. However, it does take a moment or two to get used to the clarity. If one likes an entertaining action movie, one cannot go wrong with this movie, and the 4k presentation is very good.

    Now that I have Atmos set up, I am seeking out Atmos movies to enjoy the sound. I am glad I utilize dual VTF-15's to handle the LFE in this movie. From the bass to the surround effects, I loved this movie. I watched it for the audio experience. When I upgrade to a 4K TV, then I will be able to comment on look of the movie. Until then I can say the soundtrack does not disappoint and I actually liked the movie. It was a great version of Kong and refreshing to have it done in the way they did in this movie. Its not going to win academy awards, its a megalithic monster movie, but it will most certainly entertain for the time you are engaged with it.

    GREAT Movie, Even Better with 4K & Dolby Atmos

    |
    Posted .

    I already owned this movie on standard Blu-Ray,. and it's an excellent movie. However, if you want a review of the movie, itself, read other reviews (especially those found on the internet, not the Best Buy site). This is purely about the 4K Ultra HD version. Prior to purchasing the 4K version, I was running a 7.1-channel system, with side & rear surround speakers. I recently upgraded my system to utilize the Dolby Atmos feature of my receiver, and it has made an INCREDIBLE difference. Just so you know, I am playing the movies on a Sony UBP‑X800, and the audio (and video switching) is handled by a Sony STR-DN1080. I disconnected the rear surround speakers, rerouted the wires, and used them for the Dolby Atmos speakers. Within the receiver’s setup utility, I activated Sony's "PhantomSound", which, through some digital trickery I haven't bothered attempting to understand (yet, as I plan to research this), it uses the side surround speakers to "trick" you into believing you also have the rear surround speakers still attached. In other words, while I'm actually running a 5.1.2-channel configuration, your ears WILL believe (if your system is properly calibrated) you are listening to the movie’s audio through a 7.1.2-channel system (front, center, Dolby Atmos, side surround, rear surround, & subwoofer). I’ve already watched two movies, and it’s almost identical to watching a movie in a movie theater, as you are COMPLETELY surrounded by audio.

    That's Why He's The King

    |
    Posted .

    Very entertaining in it's own rite, this movie is one in a series of films coming out that deal with Kaiju. Take note, the movie has nothing to do with any of the other movies that came before it referring to King Kong. This Kong is a young (and still growing) apelike creature that will eventually duke it out with Godzilla who, by the way, is significantly older and larger than Kong. But again, Kong is still growing. This is noted in the film and is an important fact. If they were to go head to head at this point, Godzilla would knock the monkey-snot out of Kong. After all, short of his strength, Kong has no other powers, unlike Godzilla who can breathe radioactive fire. And if you believe the older films fly, jump, and dance. And don't even get me started on how Godzilla deals with Bambi. Yeah, look that one up on YouTube. This particular story, however, deals with a group of soldiers who are there to escort a scientific survey team that want to prove that the rumors are true. That there is a very large lifeform (or two) living on an island that, until this mission, has been uncharted. Turns out, the island is indeed there, and so are the big beasties. Mayhem ensues. Enjoy.
