1933 Kong is still King!,
This review is from: King Kong [DVD]  (DVD)
I love the new Peter Jackson remake of Kong, but we as an audience must NEVER forget that this exciting, original and still grounbreaking movie was the start of it all. Practically every movie about monsters, adventure or exploration has something to owe to Kong. Not to mention the Special FX. Sure, they are a little creaky (being over 70 years old will do that to you), but even the original 1977 STAR WARS has a couple of creaky moments (polystyrene space garbage, alien creature masks that, er, don't move). It took the advent of CGI to sort those out. Go and see the 2005 Kong and be amazed, but before you do, see the original and witness the dawn of a new age of movie making. Excellent!
