King Kong

King Kong ★★★★★

Almost ninety years later and 1933's "King Kong" still feels like a quintessential popcorn movie—how many movies from the last decade can you really say that about, let alone last summer? Something about this narrative seems to speak to our collective unconscious (hence the propensity to remake it every couple of generations), and, aided by elaborate special effects—once state of the art, now utterly charming—"Kong" tells a rollicking adventure story that resembles the best pulp magazine come to life.
