Beauty and the beast.

''The beast looked upon the face of beauty. Beauty stayed his hand, and from that moment he was as one dead.''

In 1933 New York, an overly ambitious movie producer coerces his cast and hired ship crew to travel to mysterious Skull Island, where they encounter Kong, a giant ape who is immediately smitten with leading lady Ann Darrow.

"Ladies and Gentlemen... I give you... KONG! THE EIGHTH WONDER OF THE WORLD!"

Due to his work on the much-acclaimed live-action Lord of the Rings trilogy, Peter Jackson's name has become synonymous with the word "epic". Following his sojourn into Middle Earth, the question on everyone's mind was simple: where could Mr. Jackson go next? His decision to helm a reimagining of King Kong... read more

I didn't care for this movie.

The first part of the movie was SOOO slow, and then later it's too action packed. Just one danger after another after another. They stretched the scenes out too long. Plus, the girl never even said "kong", and only said one word to the ape, yet loves him like a brother. The worst of all was the people just stared like 30 times in the movie! No talking! ... read more

Cinema - The Most Underappreciated Films (44 movies items)

"Peter Jackson's film is severely underrated, and has not received the appreciation it deserved. The initial criticism from the anti-intellectually monopolized film critics are filled with the typical illegitimate criticisms such as Jack Black's role, the length of the film, and the epic style similar to LotR does not suit a monster movie. All BS."

“This is one of the most emotionally moving epic films I have ever experienced between Kong and a woman. Jackson and the writers also critique the greed of the system in NYC as well as the immoral acts of capturing live animals. Unfortunately, the film could've pushed further to perfection if it further critiqued colonialism of the white men through the natives. I am very disappointed in the portrayal of the natives as savages.” read more

El Zumbador posted a review 5 months, 3 weeks ago

“En 2005 Peter Jackson nos sorprendía a todos con una nueva película de King Kong, que resaltaba por la curiosidad de la gente a ver cómo se podría trasladar la historia del mítico rey de los simios a nuestros tiempos.

Diré que mientras la versión original de los años treinta se dirigía más que nada a impactar debido a lo innovador que era en aquel tiempo lo que se mostraba a nivel técnico, es decir, a entretener, la nueva versión está más dirigida a los personajes y a la forma en la que afrontaban las múltiples situaciones en las que se veían inmersos. Tal vez la película de los treinta presentaba qué pasaría si sacamos a un simio gigante de su hábitat natural para llevarlo a nuestro sitio (un bastante rebuscado mensaje anti-zoo’s para algunos, IDK), pero es” read more
