King Kong: Skull Island


The giant ape King Kong has made numerous appearances on screen and found a home among the most legendary beasts of cinema. Kong first appeared in the iconic 1933 film and since then Kong has trashed New York City more than once and battled Godzilla frequently too. Jordan Vogt-Roberts' version of the story of the giant ape is set in 1973, with the Vietnam war providing a suitable backdrop. The imagery used in the film, such as the fiery explosions and shimmering images, mirror the pictures regularly seen in Vietnam War films such as Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket.

Thursday Movie Picks



Summer blockbusters tend to be big, expensive, and full to the brim with major stars that get audiences flocking to the cinema, even a rare appearance of the Sun on British land may not stop a cinematic juggernaut. 

Nowadays blockbusters are made up of the tenth film of the franchise, and the odd original film (which risks the chance of financial failure) which is a shame.
