So, tomorrow. Kong: Skull Island, or The Great Wall?

Normally I’d just say Kong: Skull Island, but Howard Tayler actually thought The Great Wall was all right and there’s something to be said for seeing stuff like that on a big screen. I can’t really do two films in a week anymore, and if I do Kong tomorrow it’s going to be 3D IMAX (not exactly by choice: that’s the only venue showing it in the morning), which is gonna be expensive right there.  Thoughts?

    Well, Kong opens next week… I’d say Logan, which opens tomorrow and has had great reviews, rather than Great Wall, which Howard seems to be among the few supporters of.

      …I blame the muscle relaxant. 🙂

        Great Wall isn’t a kung fu movie, but if you like kung fu movies, you’ll probably like it.

        For fun, you can try to identify the stuff that was quite obviously there for Chinese consumption. (It has made $170M there so far.)

    Well… which one won’t directly benefit a repressive communist govt? Go with that one. 😉

      Probably the just choice. Pirate the Great Wall? Turnabout is fair play, no?

        Great Wall would be interesting, just as a study of what a Chinese studio thinks makes a good global movie.

    Logan and The Great Wall, looks to be super serious flicks. Kong: Skull Island, looks like it doesn’t take itself seriously (in a good way).
    .
    If you want to see the X-MEN return to the MCU, I would not go see Logan. However if it is a huge success and there’s no helping it, then go see it.

    Great wall was gorgeous, entertaining, and surprisingly short. Even with a boatload of trailers its less than two hours. The first and third act panoramic shots are fantastical in a way lord of the rings never was. Well worth seeing in that big screen.
