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

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"There's a great old Hollywood story about how 'King Kong' director Merian C. Cooper told actress Fay Wray that he planned to cast her opposite the tallest, darkest leading man in Hollywood. Wray assumed he meant Clark Gable. In reality, it was someone who would become even more iconic! There are few people out there, regardless of age, who don't know the name King Kong. The magnificent ape (or 'The Eight Wonder of the World' as the film itself would have it) has never been far from the minds of "

Animal Horror top list (no water monsters!) (84 movies items)

"Aika vekkulia että King Kong oli lähellä kolmen kympin kriisiä (mmmm... riisiä) paljon kovempi kokemus kuin joskus penskana, jolloin tämän viimeksi näin. Vaikka elokuvan alkuasukas(- ja kiinalais)kuvaa voisi pitää rasistisena, omasta mielestäni tämä ei mene överiksi. Nämä eivät lopulta esiinny sen kummempina raakalaisina, kuin mitä esimerkiksi Raamattu messuaa Abrahamin ihmisuhrikoettelemuksesta. Sen sijaan sovinismi ja suoranainen misogynia on parhaimmillaan niin absurdia (rep"

" 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."
