King Kong

King Kong ★★★★★

The Japanese sure has Ishirō Honda’s Godzilla as their perfect representative of a masterful movie monster, but before that so did the West with Merian Caldwell and Ernest B. Schoedsack’s King Kong. Sure not any close of those amazing deep and thematic social ideas of its japanese "counter-part", but it’s a downright PERFECT piece of entertainment that inspire blockbuster spectacles till this very day! Great enough characters; a evolving adventure that embraces the escapism in a genius take that many try to accomplish; a perfect three act structure that keeps the hooking narrative always eye-gluing to the screen; and of course the big creatures mayhem with maybe the most iconic one of them all at the center, that any simplistic mind of today could look and call it a fraud dated ridicule mess, while real cinema lovers can actually see an absorbing pretentions creativity arising in cinema that would forever keep presence in the art of creating entertainment so passionately.
