Our listeners can be forgiven for thinking at this point that we hate the giant monster genre. After all, we’ve already taken Pacific Rim and Godzilla to the rewriters room, and now we’re doing the same for Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island. The truth is we’ve genuinely liked all these movies (well, maybe not Gregg, but what does he like, honestly?), but even the most beloved movies can always be reexamined, tweaked and rejigged.
Liam, Gregg and Scott do just that for Kong, taking special aim at the relatively blank cast of characters, as well as tweaking some motivations and, of course, deleting the protagonist.
