Movie Series - King Kong

King Kong was a movie series about a giant gorilla named "Kong". The first movie, released in 1933, was a black-and-white monster movie which used stop motion models. Other movies in this series include Son of Kong (1933), King Kong vs Godzilla (1962), and King Kong Escapes (1967). An updated remake was released in 1976, and has a sequel, King Kong Lives (1986). Another remake was released in 2005, but unlike the 1976 version, this one was set in the first film's 1933 contemporary setting.

1 Did you know Jackson has a 201min Extended Edition on DVD? A couple of guys have done their own fanedits: http://www.fanedit.info/TFj-n.html -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 24, 2010, 4:36 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 The 70's version was awful! Political correctness and a man in a monkey suit. This movie is a through and through disgrace to anything King Kong! -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on March 14, 2010, 9:06 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Peter Jackson's King Kong was awesome. A bit long, and not as good after they left the island. The T-Rex vs. Kong fight and the scary natives were well done. -- Submitted By: (rodduling) on January 27, 2010, 1:43 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 King Kong boned the fish with the 2005 remake - why did it have to be so darn long, especially in the beginning? In the theatre, my girlfriend fell asleep during the trip to the island, and I didn't wake her until 45 minutes later when they FINALLY got to the island. She asked if she missed anything, and I said not much. On the flip side, the action scenes on the island and back in NYC were awesome, albeit still a bit long. I had the impression that Peter Jackson used his "influence capital" from the LOTR movies to get the Director's Cut straight to the screen - there was quite a lot that could have waited to be put on the DVD as deleted scenes. Don't get me wrong: King Kong is a GREAT story; I just don't think it's got enough to make a decent three-hour film. Merian C. Cooper did just fine with 105 minutes, but when Peter Jackson went for three hours, he bloated it into a fish-boner. I'm not buying this one on DVD until they come out with a Special CONDENSED Edition. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on January 8, 2010, 11:17 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I have found that enjoy the different incarnations of the King Kong film- from the old B&W to the 2005 Peter Jackson CGI tour de force. King Kong has become a showpiece of SFX over the years and all of the renditions have their own appeal- never boned. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on January 8, 2010, 6:22 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Was there really any need to make any sequels or remakes of the classic? I don't think so. T'was beauty that killed the beast (which they had wanted 90-something Fay Wray herself to say in the last remake) but it the beast (or ape) that saved the Empire State Building via his climb which transformed what had been a gigantic white elephant moneypit that had been completed smack in the worst part of the Depression into THE famous address NYC address in the world apart from the Statue of Liberty! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2009, 7:16 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
