A film by Jordan Vogt-Roberts

Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson 

Kong: Skull island is a turbo charge film with plenty of explosion and gun fire Gee I think this film is made in America. And yes if you have an action picture like that you are going to have Sam Jackson in the mix to be this hard ass soldier and bring you pop corn and sodas because you are in for a hell of a ride. Here is the thing remember those film B-rated about this giant spider, or other monsters fighting monster well it is an homage to all those films with better actors.

The story goes like this. It takes place in 1973 and the movie was primarily shot in Vietnam and yes you are going to see how beautiful Vietnam is. A team of scientists explore an uncharted island in the Pacific. when they get there not long after they find an inviting beast that is going to change the course of their life. Yes the CGI came out very well here plus I hate to say it is a formulaic film with predictability but it is entertaining as hell. The film takes places in 1973 and you will see the technology of that era ho! my god yeah I know. Still, the nature of Larson’s role is one of the film’s biggest surprises, and the key manner in which Skull Island deviates from the conventional Kong. Do not compare this film with the old Kong this one is different from most. So if you find some time on your hand go see that one you might be surprise pleasantly at that.

A film by Terence Davies

Cast: Rachel Weisz, Tom Hiddleston, Ann Mitchell

Set around 1950 Hester Collyer (Rachel Weisz), an attractive but inward young woman who is married to Sir William Collyer (Simon Russell Beale), a judge twice her age or so. The story takes place in a single day when she left her husband for a young pilot that she fell madly in love with. He is Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), an RAF pilot.


The story tell has flashback from time to time to let the viewer what happen with this Three persons. First you have Collier who is a judge has a stable job, beard well-trimmed, expensive tailored suit, and chauffeur who drives a Rolls Royce.  On the other hand is Freddie who was a pilot and looking for a job. You have Hester who falls in love with Freddie who ha nothing to his name but who loves him to death. Collier brings stability and financial security but the love is not there. Collier is an unhappy man judging from the flashback his mother was the cold one and quiet unpleasant so Hester has been quiet neglected in bed therefore she found a new lover who’s that passion. The film has that brownish feel to it with the Pubs where people were singing and sipping their beers slowly. The aftermath of the war is still there.  The air is foggy and thick men wore suit of dark color, woman wore dresses with hot and a scarf. People were living in small apartment decorated with wooden furniture. This was the time back then The film here is well acted and filmed. Another British drama who was done à la classic mode.
