Theater VII: Kong - Skull Island

NEW Episodes every Tuesday at 9:00am

This week’s episode is taking us to a a magical location in the South Pacific that is teaming with all types of strange and unique wildlife.  The place is Skull Island and its King is Kong, a gigantic ape that protects his subjects with his strength and cunning, in 2017’s Kong: Skull Island.  In this most recent update of the King Kong franchise, a group of scientists and military personnel embark on an expedition to a remote island in the Pacific to see if monsters really exist.   Spoiler alert, they do.  Once the team arrives on the island,  they quickly anger the mighty Kong and most of the rest of the movie is Kong fighting stuff and the people learning that Kong is a protector and not the real monster on the island.  In the end, we get a setup for a new monster movie universe.  The plot is a little thin, but the action scenes and the quality CGI really make this a fun watch.  How much food does Kong have to eat each day?  How exactly does a perpetual storm work?  How long were those villagers hiding in those ancient ruins before the group showed up?  Why did the soldiers think they could stop Kong with conventional weapons after he destroyed all of their helicopters in a matter of minutes?  It’s nice to see that Dr. Dre and Eazy-E were able to join us on the journey.  Second best Samuel L. Jackson death in a movie?  Thank you for all of the love you continue to show us.  Please rate and review the podcast wherever you get it and if you like the show, share it with your friends.  Have a great week.
