King Kong

King Kong ★★★★

Planting the seed for movies like "Jurassic Park" "Godzilla", and others, "King Kong" is a classic of its time. Revolutionary in the techniques of Stop-Animation, visual effects, and sound effects...

A spectacle of action, adventure, and fighting. Peep the wrestling match between Kong and the Tyrannosaurus. Its still an all-time great sequence..

But some things are indeed, dated-the acting, some of the special effects(though extraordinary achievement for its time), and one cannot ignore the racial undertones of the movie. Also, the misogyny in the dialogue. I know its a movie of its time, but still...

Nevertheless, entertaining, thrilling, "King Kong" was a landmark in film...
