King Kong in Lakewood (6/07)

Saturday June 7, 2008

Catch this historical flick this weekend. See what Peter Jackson got wrong in his ill-conceived remake by joining us for the glorious original. An adventurous film crew travels to Skull Island for the scenery and ends up finding the living eighth wonder of the world. Can Kong be tamed? Will New York City ever be the same? Is this the greatest special effects movie of all time?

Directed by Merian C. Cooper & Ernest B. Schoedsack. Rated PG. 6:00pm in the New Main Lakewood Library Auditorium
KING KONG (1933)

Hey there, not so fast. Although the OG Kong was brilliant, don't be so quick to diss Pete's remake.

Yes it has flaws like most big budget flicks these days but don't tell me that it wasn't super entertaining and visually amazing. I too prefer the gritty B&W feel to match my childhood memories but Pete Jackson did a remake about as much justice as one could.

Otherwise I agree with you on pretty much everything you always write. Keep slinging out your thoughts - they are fascinating :)

Well hello there. Thanks for taking a stance and supporting your man Pete. I guess I have to agree with you in terms of the visuals, it was captivating. I mean come on...Adrien Brody was in it, what more can I say?

There is just something so nostalgic and charming about the original, I am a sucker for an old black and white film, any Saturday night....with a big bag of twizzlers.

Thanks for the kind words. It warms my heart to think people find reading my thoughts enjoyable. :)
