This week hosts Simon and Patrick are joined by Sordid Cinema writer and King Kong expert Thomas O’Connor to discuss Kong: Skull Island, the latest effort to revitalize the giant ape who first appeared onscreen in 1933. Can a monster movie set in the very-post Vietnem era with no monkey suit, no lady Kong, and some possible communist sympathies (bear with us here) still be entertaining? Did someone fall asleep during their screening? And what the hell is going on with John C. Reilly’s performance? All these questions and more will be answered, so have a listen!
