"Oh no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was beauty killed the beast."

Godzilla may be the King of the Monsters, but 1933's King Kong shall forever remain the king of monster movies. With its state-of-the-art special effects, entertaining story and a touching climax, King Kong has rightfully earned its coveted label of "a classic". The forerunner of event cinema and one of the first prod... read more

The 1933 horror movie 'King Kong' has been remade a few times as well as 'King Kong Vs. Godzilla' and 'King Kong Lives', a sequel to the 1976 version, this version is rave, it's scarier and more amazing than the 2005 remake

It somehow looks better in black and white, the music is modern (at the time it was made) and (for now), it's one of the 10 best movies ever made, a terrifying, ... read more

Movie Reviews (201-250) (50 movies items)

" There will never be a Kong better than this. It is full of legendary action pieces. Monster vs. monster fights, the gorilla with the girl in his hand while getting hunted in New York. It was really the first true blockbuster effects movie Fay Wray will be the most gorgeous scream queen of the golden age of Hollywood."

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: March (15 movies items)

"March 8 "Why, the whole world will pay to see this." "No chains will ever hold that." "We'll give him more than chains. He's always been king of his world, but we'll teach him fear. We're millionaires, boys. I'll share it with all of you. Why, in a few months, it'll be up in lights on Broadway: Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World." I've been meaning to see the original King Kong for years and now that Kong: Skull Island is coming out this month, I thought I'd get around to finally watching "

"Re-watch - Dec. 23rd Old-school movie day Next up was the original King Kong, which meant I wound up with a pair of films whose finales involve military planes (though I can't honestly say I planned that). I can't imagine there's much I can say about how great this film is, so I won't try to. It's still a powerful film with a wonderful cast & story, and there's nothing about it that I don't enjoy. Just a thought: Now I kinda want to revisit Peter Jackson's version, which I haven't seen since i"

"The original monster king. Groundbreaking not only for the monster genre, but the entire art of cinema, pioneering many special effects techniques. Even after all these years, Kong is believable as a living, breathing being. A modern tragedy of a screenplay as Kong is captured, exploited, and eventually destroyed."
