264: ‘KONG: Skull Island’ Starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John C. Reilly

Kong is King, or so they tell us. Listen as we discuss who the real star of Skull Island is (hint: it’s not the Skulking Skull King, no matter what Tom tells you). But one thing is for sure: if you like giant gorillas punching dinosaurs in the face, we have the movie for you!

Michael is back, and we simply mute him every time he talks about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (it was a four hour podcast before the edit). Tom tries to convince us that Kong is transitioning; Kevin explains why he doesn’t watch trailers. Joe sets up the story for his new pitch to Marvel: ‘Sassy Photographer’; and Dan has a video recovery.

It’s Reel Spoilers 264.

You’ve been warned.
