Nothing but a campy '70s disaster movie

"There is a girl out there who might be running for her life from some gigantic turned-on ape."

Almost three decades before Peter Jackson re-imagined 1933's King Kong for a new generation of filmgoers, Italian B-movie producer Dino De Laurentiis had the same idea. Naturally, though, due to the filmmaking technology of the period, 1976's King Kong looks subpar compared to Peter Jacks... read more

Even though I’m a huge movie buff and I think that my knowledge of movies is right now pretty extensive, I still have to see the real ‘King Kong’, the original classic but, in the mean time, I managed to see this second version. As a matter of fact, I also re-watched Peter Jackson’s version recently and even though it was a decent flick, rather impressive visually speaking, it was still ra... read more

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

"May 10 "You know I had my horoscope done before I flew out to Hong Kong. And it said that I was going to cross over water and meet the biggest person in my life." Well, forget the original King Kong because this one is "The most exciting original motion picture event of all time." Yeah, we're not riding on the coattails on something that already existed. This is something new and original. But seriously, this is nowhere near as good as the original. Going into this one I was expecting the wo"

Animal Horror top list (no water monsters!) (78 movies items)

"Jostain syystä aloin Kongin toisen tulemisen aikana pohtimaan Bukowskin novellia, jossa noita muuttaa vanhan likaisen miehen kynttilän kokoiseksi ja käyttää tätä hieromasauvana. Turha, kankea ja todella ärsyttävää dialogia sisältävä apinointi, jonka olisi voinut jättää tekemättäkin. Tekivät kuitenkin. Ja sitten tuli Jacksonin Peter ja raiskasi aiheen vielä toistamiseen. Voi verissään makaavaa gorillaparkaa."
