Episode #221 – “Kong: Skull Island”

Kong: Skull Island

“Is that a monkey?” Sure is! Kong is back in a BIG way…big enough to take on Godzilla, because that’s exactly what Warner Brothers has planned for the giant ape. If WB can’t make their comic book universe work, dammit they’re going to make their giant monster shared universe work! “Kong: Skull Island” throws some A-list stars at us along with some great CGI in hopes we don’t realize this is a really expensive B-movie. Does it work? Tune in to find out! We also talk about what we’ve been watching, including “Making History”, and move on to discuss the latest “Game of Thrones” news.
