How is that a movie? It's only 45 min long. And isn't even that good. The tennis one was at least funny.

Thanks for putting it in a list.

People at work took grandkids to Leap and liked it. I will admit I am not the target audience of that movie at all

Seriously?? You put Kong below Baywatch? Kong had its flaws but man, it was a great monster movie. John C Reilly was amazing in it.

I can understand that... but he is only in two thirds of the movie. So you are saying that two thirds of Baywatch was better than Kong?

I'm with you Hayes, Kong was the sleeper hit of 2017 for me. I was expecting trash but saw it in theaters out of boredom and thought it was really really fun.

I think that is why I liked it so much. Godzilla, which had some great moments, left you feeling wanting. But Kong really delivered on the fun... Kong using a helicopter as a bat or hitting a giant lizard with a boat propeller. I grew up on the old Kong vs Godzilla or Godzilla vs Mothra. So, these new takes with a higher special effects budget are amazing to me. I had a lot of fun at Kong, more so than Godzilla, which is why it was a sleeper hit of the Spring for me.

IMDb said release date was Jan 20, 2017. Only reason why I added to the list. Didn't mean to offend.
