King Kong

King Kong ★★★★½

Time has done nothing to diminish the feats of cinematic trickery on display in King Kong.  A marvel of editing and pacing.  This is still a thrill to watch at home; I can only imagine what theater audiences felt when they saw this captured on the big screen 88 years ago!

Newer versions may have better VFX but none can match the imagination or the ambition of the original.  There’s a reason the words “King Kong” have been a part of our cultural lexicon for decades.  Behold, the Eighth Wonder Of The World!
