Message to all the studios: stop with the reboots and all the hacks you hire to write good reviews
10 March 2017 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

So it is like Ghostbusters 2016 all over again. On the day of release of another unrequested, unwanted, unappealing reboot a whole bunch of accounts appear and write super duper positive reviews. Well, they are all fake. Although these fake reviewers are getting more 'sophisticated.' Look at tvsweeney-39052 for example, the account was created several months ago and give Village Road Show and Columbia releases all 10/10, but has thrown in a couple of bad reviews of other studios' releases in the interim.

This movie sucks. The unoriginality stinks to high heaven The token Chinese cow to satisfy Chinese investors and Chinese ticket sales is beyond useless and cannot act and Kong is not even Kong (they don't even want to call him King because he is so off). This is one of those standard cliché films where the grown up audience knows after 5 minutes, that the target group is hacks. Even in the middle of the film's major actions scene, the whole logic pauses, as two supposedly cool characters have to talk, run and get into danger and make the audience yawn, because it is just so bad.

Unlike many fantasy films, this film is not interesting at all. If some young script writer thought that it would be "cool" for a remote island to be "interesting", then the accountants at the studio would write this script for him.

Yawn
