“Kong: Skull Island” is definitely worth getting out of bed for. The action packed reboot stars Tom Hiddleston Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Riley and Brie Larson.

I’ve never really cared what “The Bachelor” was. For years, I  assumed that it was a chill dating show where an available guy dates girls one at a time until he finds the one for him. I was so naive. I should have known not to expect so much decency from reality television. I watched ...
