I went in with my boyfriend and his brother not knowing how long it was, but I could handle it…After a while I was like “okay when’s it gonna end?” Now, I know, I never saw the movies before named “King Kong”…but I wanted to see this because of Jack Black. I’ve drawn the man like, oh I dunno, like 5 times. I had an obsession lol. And I knew he was trying to get away from his old persona. My boyfriend finds it hard not to laugh at the faces he makes even when he’s trying to be serious though.
Yes, the savage islanders were freaky. My boyfriend says he’s going to have nightmares. I started laughing when I saw them.
I thought the movie would be worse since there was a lot of CG, but actually they’re coming along. Kong looked pretty cool for being CG even on closeups. But of course, they modeled him after a real Gorilla - so duh, it looked nice and detailed. But the things I thought were dumb were when stuff would move in CG. Like when she was on his back, she wasn’t slipping off…after all that movement you KNOW in real life she would’ve fallen to his armpit and been hanging on for dear life. And then just the way things would move - it’s like they move too fast for being “real”.
Also, when they are trying to get away from skull island - where’d all the crew come from?! to begin with there were only like…about 20 people and then a bunch of them died, and then when they’re trying to escape in the cave, a bunch more guys get killed. :??
There was other stuff that made me roll my eyes, but it’s a movie so what can you do?:rollseyes:
Overall it was a good movie though. I’m not really into those kinds of movies, but it was a free ticket. I thought it was a decent movie, I just don’t know if I’d sit through it again. It was pretty long. That seems like a movie that needs an intermission - same with Peter Jacksons other movies. Damn my butt started to hurt.
Jack Black did a good job, I think. I mean, I know they could’ve done better, but it’s a good start for him to show people he can do other stuff. lol. It’s just funny that following this he’ll be in Tenacious D:The Pink of Destiny.
And the main lady reminded us a lot of Nicole Kidman, but I know that the make up they did in Moulin Rouge was also for around the same time period…so maybe it’s just a coincedence.
