Phew. Finally. I was worried no-one wanted to say a bad thing about it 'cos Peter Jackson's so nice and he did a storming job with LOTR. But King Kong? Whatever...


Personally I'm waiting for Volunteers II: This One's Funny. Ape-blonde-OJ jokes, huh? Guess that's why you get the big bucks.


I was so bored.Watching everyone run away from those dinosaurs with the obvious green screen background was painful -- it was the worst green screen I'd ever seen.So anti-climatic. Bleh.


Believe it or not, someone has already written a fanfic where Kong falls, but lives:http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2706418/1/I'm guessing this person had an older sister who wrote a "Titanic" fanfic with a happy ending...

I loved your review. I'm sure it will make everyone want to see it. Just to see if you are right. Thanks,K KongIn the meantime, I think I will step on you.

Tea Bag Ladies

You might want to correct the spelling on rendevouxing; it's rendezvousing.

I felt that the movie King Kong put at risk Monster Monkeys. Why did they have to use real Monster Monkey's? Why couldn't they have used animated monkeys? Where's the ASPCA when you need them? Or was that ASCAP? Or are they the music licensing company? Or is King Kong the name or radio stations in Seattle and Honolulu ... or is Kong really Delores Kong, the famous financial planner...found at www.kong.com? Hmmm.

It could have been really great if it had just been done much better. :-)

How many times (through three big-screen renditions) can this monkey fall-and-not-get-up? Maybe he's clumsy ... maybe acrophobic?Anyway, nice cut on OJ. Blonde and slinky would bring him out of the woodwork to watch the fall ... and, if he was within the impact area, I could see the headline: "KONG FALLS ON ASS, KILLS ASSHOLE"Actually, it's good writing, Ken. What Peter was looking for was undoubtedly the sensationalistic, in-your-face action that draws the undergrads into the box office. Don't worry ... within a few weeks, it'll be sittin' on a rack in Blockbuster.
