"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

Scarier and more amazing than the 2005 remake

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

"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"

Spook-fest 2016 (35 movies items)

"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."

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Os (50 movies items)

"As 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island” indicates, giant ape King Kong is one of cinema’s most enduring creations, but his first outing, in Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack’s 1933 film, came up empty with the Oscars. One would like to put it down to the film being a pure genre picture, but both the inferior 1976 remake, and Peter Jackson’s slightly less inferior 2005 version, received more Academy recognition (though admittedly a visual effects category didn’t exist until 1938)."
