Nothing but a campy '70s disaster movie

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

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2017 (315 movies items)

"24.10. Silloin tällöin sitä ehtii katsoa pidemmän elokuvan. Olin riemuissani, koska King Kong vuosimallia 1976 edusti erilaista elokuvaa. Olenhan katsonut viimeisen kuukauden aikana pelkkää (uutuus)kauhua. Riemu kuitenkin loppui lyhyeen, kun ensimmäisen puolen tunnin jälkeen havahduin, King King on paska elokuva. Se on teknisesti aikakauteensa nähden surkea. Gorillapukuun hypännyt Rick Baker näyttää kävelevän paskat housuissa jokaisessa kohtauksessa, trikkikuvat näyttävät sutt"

"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"
