King Kong has its world release tomorrow and the director Peter Jackson is from my home town so it is pretty special. His house he grew up in is about 10 mins walk from my house. The release is in New York (ironically) and this is a widely anticipated film that will hopefully win some oscars!

All hail King Kong!

Peter Jackson is the master of three hour films you will not be bored for a minute!
I wasn't looking forward to it initially, but after seeing the trailers I think I'm going to go see it.

A good storyline is the most important, too many special affects becomes too artificial. It's being released here soon, theres heaps of movies I haven't seen yet, but yeah that looks good.

'King Flop'

My Rating: D-

If you thought what Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich did to Godzilla (1988) was
bad... just wait until you see this bloated, overrated piece of trash.

I thought about posting review of this film, but I thought it would be best if I kept the comments to myself! Well, I've changed my mind.

Peter Jackson's King Kong is a colossal disaster.

I've watched this film a grand total of three times and each viewing was more heinous than the previous.

King Kong(1933 & 1976) captured the Gorilla in all its viciousness. The earlier Kong took no prisoners; showing no remorse for creature, or human.

Yes, these films are considered cheesy, but the 1933 version is considered a classic.

Peter Jackson's Kong delivers a punchless mess that doesn't deliver on any level.

The acting is very poor: Jack Black misses the mark; Adrien Brody is listless; and Naomi Watts is unconvincing.

This movie is 187 minutes and King Kong doesn't show up until 70 minutes into it.

Everybody knows the story of King Kong, but Peter Jackson decides to go down the road of sappiness to show that King Kong has a softer side.

I will not give out any spoilers, but there is a nauseating scene involving Kong sliding around on a patch of ice in New York City.

Wha really angered me was the fact that Peter Jackson omitted a crucial part from the ending of the 1933 version. With that key ingredient missing; the film ended on a downer.
