Loved this movie.

I loved the part when Denzel Washington screamed at King Kong and then shot him in the head.

I might be mixing up my movies though. It's been a while since I've seen it.

@ Yost

Long movie but it is good.
HAILHYDRA - 5/6/2014, 8:14 AM
Was I the only one who was glad when King Kong died?
blackandyellow - 5/6/2014, 8:14 AM
Yoss, don't waste your time. It was terrible. I'm not kidding.

I loved the part where King Kong told Luke he was his father.

Oh, dammit, that was Lord of the Rings. Sorry.

The problem with this film was that Jackson was pretty cocky coming off the LOTR trilogy. He thought if audiences would sit through 3 hours of LOTR that they'll sit through three hours of King Kong. The difference is that LOTR had a complex plot with many different story lines going on at once and the audience was enthralled. King Kong was weighed down by bloated exposition, tons of rising action on the boat, and then sequence after sequence of dumb CGI escapes. The only reason to see this movie is the T-Rex scene but I'd strongly advise skipping to that point and not watching the rest.

No, HAILHYDRA, but you probably were not the only one who was happy when Peter Jackson's King Kong ended.
Niklander - 5/6/2014, 8:20 AM
Well I guess we wont see the damn rematch between Godzilla and King Kong
HAILHYDRA - 5/6/2014, 8:21 AM
Not to mention it had one storyline that was driven by ridiculous motives. The idea that each character would do whatever the Jack Black's character said in that situation just on the promise of money was pretty dumb too.

1. I wasn't in it.
2. Lack of full frontal nudity.
HAILHYDRA - 5/6/2014, 8:23 AM
For what it was, the '76 King Kong was better than this.

Hey, nail, you're one of my favorite main editors on this site, but digging around in a musty closet (steady, McGee!) to bring out errors in King Kong?

What's the follow-up?

Everything wrong about D.W. Griffith's "Birth of a Nation"???

*throws poo and runs*

Gusto - 5/6/2014, 8:23 AM
The good about it...
1. Telling my girlfriend that he
was gonna escape at the end, and
then watching her cry when he doesn't.
2. Pointing and laughing at her whilst
she cried her eyes out.
SuperCat - 5/6/2014, 8:24 AM
The movie was long as sh*t. Still liked it.
Steelheart - 5/6/2014, 8:25 AM
my favorite scene

This movie is the definitive proof that Peter Jackson doesn't know how to edit himself, which is why The Hobbit got turned into three movies. King Kong would have been great if it were an hour shorter, and it could have very easily been. There is so much in this movie that has nothing to do with the actual story.
bropous - 5/6/2014, 8:27 AM
SuperCat: That's what my last GF said about my Johnson.
bropous - 5/6/2014, 8:28 AM
Gusto, you probably laughed at Dumbo and Old Yeller, you bastard!
bropous - 5/6/2014, 8:28 AM
Just for that....

There goes your erection!!!

@ bropous

bropous - 5/6/2014, 8:32 AM
And how's THIS for non-sequitur...

bropous - 5/6/2014, 8:33 AM

bropous - 5/6/2014, 8:35 AM
Well, she IS "tow-headed"....so I guess that makes her...


THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 5/6/2014, 8:38 AM
The best remake of all time imo
bropous - 5/6/2014, 8:38 AM
Hey, look!

It's WhiteBolt about to get his first sexual experience!

sKeemAn - 5/6/2014, 8:41 AM

This movie was awesome if you could get throught he first hour. I actually like how they made the blonde white girl fall in love with the big gorilla. Always reminds of this over pic.

Mighty Joe Young.
LEEE777 - 5/6/2014, 8:43 AM
I thought KING KONG was pretty good?
datNAMEtho - 5/6/2014, 8:46 AM
The film took too long. But I thought it was decent. Won't be seeing it again anytime soon though.
MrSotoMan - 5/6/2014, 8:48 AM
Yea, I didn't like the movie.....at all.
Maia87 - 5/6/2014, 8:52 AM
Still BETTER than The Hobbit movies...
tvor03 - 5/6/2014, 8:52 AM
One thing the film did really well was making us sympathetic towards Kong. That wasn't the goal of the original, which was to make a monster movie. It was the goal of the first remake, but poorly executed. Jackson did a great job of showing Kong to not be a monster, but simply a large, intelligent animal. I got choked up when he died.
