“I am the Lizard King, I can do anything.” ~~Jim Morrison
I went to the Ford Drive-In Theatre to see Godzilla vs. Kong, even though I probably could’ve seen it on HBOMAX. I wanted to see it on The Big Screen. It was pretty cool. Lots of action. Lots of fights and smashed-up skyscrapers, even some eating of brains.
But Hollywood and Toyko are woke now, thanks to a century of sexual predators exploiting starlets and stars and those aspiring to such illumination. I saw it first-hand when I lived in L.A. Weinstein got caught. A lot of his predecessors and heirs have not and were not. You can read biographies and watch documentaries of The Big Wigs that spell it out crystal-clear.
So no Faye Wray for Kong. No genitals even. Ms. Wray was replaced by a little, non-white island girl from whom Kong takes orders without much complaint. He isn’t interested in Rebecca Hall, or Eiza González, both attractive adult women. All Kong pines for is “Home.”
As for Godzilla, his junk follows him along like a wedding gown train; just kidding — he’s woke, too. Not interested in destroying cities, or killing Kong; he just wants what all lizards want: to kick robot lizard ass!
Well, it’s the greatest movie of the latest pandemic; so go see it at the drive-in and be safe! Stay woke!!!
