Ageless Chinese Serpent
San Andreas (USA 2015)
It was great fun to see the destruction of California. Better than watching the real news.
One of Dwayne Johnson's best.
Superior to watching Godzilla 2014 destruction of Honolulu, Las Vegas and San Francisco.
BTW -Tz, I liked Great Yokai War too. It's really charming and definitely a classic.

KONG: SKULL ISLAND (2017)
Entertaining and fun movie set in 1973 with comic-book characters, and no Fay Wray type love interest (Brie Larson is not a screamer). Story is loaded with some hokey stuff but the movie is fast moving so you don't get too bogged down in it. Oh yeah, no Chinese cook to get killed off but there is a Chinese female scientist (Tian Jing) who survives.
No relation to Peter Jackson's remake but owes its basic story to RKO's 1933 version. Kong walks like a fully erect human and never walks with his knuckles touching the ground.
This retelling is actually a set up and tie in with GODZILLA 2014 for a GODZILLA vs. KONG movie for 2020 release. Toho tackled this as KING KONG VS. GODZILLA in 1962 -- a world class monster wrestling match.
Check it out.

Anthropoid (Czech/UK 2016)
Cinematic treatment of the assassination of Nazi SS General Reinhard Heydrich in Prague 1942 by British trained Czech resistance fighters.
Final siege and shootout with trapped resistance fighters is dramatized recreation of an actual event; not some Tarantino fantasy as in Inglourious Basterds.
