Victor Frankenstein (2015)

image⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️☁️ 4/5   [PG-13]

I am very surprised by how negative almost all of the other reviews out there are about this movie, sure it’s not Oscar material but 26% on Rotten Tomatoes is WAY too low! Victor Frankenstein has likable characters, good villains, and a way more interesting take on the story than most other versions! James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe as well as Andrew Scott are great in their respective roles. If you enjoy good remakes of old story’s such as Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes then you should definitely try Victor Frankenstein. I wouldn’t recommend kids younger than 12 watch this unless they can handle grotesque images pretty well.

King Kong (1976)

image⭐️⭐️⭐️☁️☁️ 3/5   [PG]

King Kong might have been good when it came out but the effects don’t hold up, at all. It’s about a boat going to an unexplored island for petroleum and finding a giant monster resembling a gorilla. The acting isn’t that great (this was Jessica Lange’s first acting role) and half the budget was blown on a giant 40ft robotic gorilla which was used for less than 1 minute of the final film, this resulted in most of the film being a guy in a gorilla suit infront of a screen. I actually did enjoy this movie though not because it was good but because I like old monster movies such as the old Godzilla films. So in the end I wouldn’t recommend this film if you aren’t into monster movies or if you can’t stand bad effects. As for my age recommendation, I believe any age could handle King Kong.

Available on iTunes, Amazon, and Netflix.
