King Kong

King Kong ★★★★½

Name a better and more brutal fight than the T-Rex vs. King Kong. You can't!!!

The stop motion effects in this movie are so detailed and ahead of their time it's hard to believe this movie was made in the early 30s.

The King Kong close-up head is unfortunate in how goofy it looks, but the smaller models are fantastic. And I have to say I think the dinosaur stop motion is better done than that of Kong himself.

I also didn't remember how violent for the time this movie is! There is some brutal creature deaths and a lot of NYC destruction. Absolutely love it, it's so thrilling. It doesn't suffer from slow pace like a lot of earlier movies. The scenes in the jungle are just monster after monster and it's so fun.
