Kong: Skull Island (2017)
Halfway through the movie I just wished everybody would die so it would be over.
In the last couple of years, action (and/or fantasy) movies have become longer and longer. Don't understand why, probably to display the great special effect studios can produce these days. However, this generally doesn't help the story. And this movie is a high action, low story one. All cliché characters are there, explorers/scientists blind to all danger, the war-veteran waiting to get his revenge at all costs and mostly red- shirt cannon-fodder. The effects are great for sure, but hide the thin story-line. It's classic King Kong with a twist. People find monkey. Monkey kills people but likes tiny girl. (Why?) People try to kill monkey. Monkey tries to kill lizards. Lizards try to kill everyone. Monkey turns out to be the good guy. (Monkey should be ape technically.) Few survive. In end credits it is revealed there will be more p.o.s. movies coming in the next years. Can't wait ~cough~.
At some point halfway through the movie I just wished everybody would die so it would be over. It didn't bother me anymore if the "bad lizards" won or the "good guys" + monkey. It kept dragging along without end. Not recommended.
Hopkins either just insane or insanely artistic
This is a movie-festival film I would say. "Movie buffs" will woo Hopkins for his great artistry, while regular people will hate it, or at least won't "get it". In general, I like movies of any kind. I've seen very good and very bad ones. If Hopkins isn't insane then this film is just too artsy for me. Didn't like it at all; the first 20 minutes were chaotic. In the end the story gets some closure, but it's too random or unstructured as a whole in my opinion. On IMDb the genres are comedy, drama, fantasy. Drama and fantasy okay but I didn't even chuckle once. While watching (at increased speed) I found myself doing other things, which implicates the story wasn't very catchy. Would not recommend.
