Film of the Week — Kong: Skull Island
Picture yourself on any Sunday of the year, waking up groggy after a few too many gins in tins. You could go outside and savour the dewy morning, or – far better idea — you could hide under a duvet and enjoy something undemanding. Perhaps something with an absurdly overqualified cast – like, say, Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson, John Goodman and John C Reilly – doing battle with some enormous monster – like, say, a giant gorilla. You would definitely want bursts of action every ten minutes, goofily retro design, and a surprisingly dark sense of humour hanging over everything. Kong: Skull Island isn't going to win things, but it is destined to salve many a challenging Sunday.Times & trailer
