I think I may have subconsciously hatewatched Kong. I watched a couple of clips of the more violent parts on Youtube and then compulsively watched the whole thing to see if it was another obnoxious "R-13" thing, where the filmmakers can show people's limbs getting ripped off as long as we don't see blood splattering. Instead I got a lesson in Generic Corporate Blockbuster filmmaking these days. The director is a near-total newcomer BTW.
I said in my earlier SW: TLJ post that I give it a B. Rian Johnson's only achievement to really surpass a B is "Ozymandias" and that's not something he wrote. The backlash is certainly one of the most notable things about the movie and that's what it's probably going to be remembered for.
I have an FB account, although it's not on my real name (the ID pics I posted for the hell of it come from there.) I miss talking to Alpha Hammer and wondered if some tragedy had befallen him to have him leaving so abruptly. I sent him a friend request (only bothered to friend like 15 people on FB) and he didn't respond. Hey, if he wants to leave it's his call but I liked the guy and hope nothing bad happened to him. I don't bother with most Babblers' FBs--my main reason for bothering with FB at all is Prindle.
