KONG: SKULL ISLAND
Too much monkey business. Great cast. though (Sam Jackson, John C. Reilly, Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, you get the idea!)
Another odd, quirky and definitely polarizing film from writer/director Jim Jarmusch. Never thought of myself as a Jarmusch fan but now that I come to study on it, I have seen most of his films – Broken Flowers, Mystery Train, Only Lovers Left Alive and Down By Law (off the top of my pointed head). Trouble is, most of them don’t exactly come to a theatre near me. I saw one at a university cinema, signed another out at the local library, watched a couple of others on a streaming platform.
Anne Hathaway said she wanted to do something weird for her next film project and she got her wish (in spades) with this deliberately fantastical and deeply strange sci-fi/monster movie/whatever from Spanish writer/director Nacho Vigalondo. And I thought Jarmusch was sometimes a little off-kilter!
