Film Fallout Podcast #54 – Kong Gets a Reassignment

Kong: Skull Island
(Kong: Skull Island, Warner Bros.)

It’s King Kong vs. Chris & Dylan as Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan take on the latest movie featuring the titular ape: Kong: Skull Island. Things get slightly heated but not really as we discuss the movie’s tone, how it stands as a monster movie, and why using Apocalypse Now as a framework for a King Kong movie works and doesn’t work.

Chris also saw the new film The Assignment (formerly titled (Re)assignment), which has Michelle Rodriguez play a male assassin who is changed into a female against her will. So yeah, plenty to say about that.

There are a bunch of Blu-ray releases this week too, including our pick of the week, Mondo’s steelbook release of Ghost in the Shell. We also cover the reactions out of SXSW, including movies like Baby DriverAtomic Blonde and Song to Song. So find out if we care about another Terrence Malick movie.

Next week, we will return with a review of The Devil’s Candy.

Until then, give a listen to the podcast below:
