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

A classic

“Since this movie is a major classic, of course, I was really eager to check it out. Well, first of all, to be honest, it was after all a rather silly story (the fact that I had seen before so many remakes and rip-offs of course didn’t help). Another thing that slightly bothered me was that the damned thing turned out to be such a scream party. Seriously, from the moment Kong finally showed up, it was pretty much a non-stop screaming contest, especially from Fay Wray who basically spent half of the movie screaming her lungs out. Still, there is no denying that this movie was such a huge milestone in movie making history and the general silliness was compensated by some massive ambition. In fact, it might be one of the most ambitious movies I have seen. Especially visually speaking, I was ” read more

50 Moments of Cinematic Wonder (50 movies items)

"KING KONG - KONG ATOP THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING 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 movie producers and cineastes, following up his game-changing debut with numerous sequels, remakes, parodies and even appearances in popular songs keeping his light burning brightly down the decades. The prospect of revisiting Skull Islan"

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.
