Kong: Skull Island director criticizes his own movie on Honest Trailers

So after going on a Twitter rant about the CinemaSins episode of KONG: SKULL ISLAND , director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has decided to go on CinemaSins' main competitor Honest Trailers to riff on his own movie.

Godzilla vs. Kong will feature an older, grizzled King Kong

I can't wait for Adam Wingard 's upcoming GODZILLA VS. KONG film! Not only am I a fan of his (at least YOU'RE NEXT and THE GUEST were awesome, jury's still out on DEATH NOTE), but I just love the concept. Hell, as a kid, I remember getting giddy just watching the shitty Japanese version from the '60s. No matter that the costumes were shoddy and the fighting slow and...

What did you think of...Kong: Skull Island?
