King Kong

King Kong ★★★★★

What's to say that hasn't been said? An all-time classic! After revisiting the original Kong, I have garnered a fresh appreciation for it. The dated stop-motion effect of the creatures actually adds to the creepiness of the film (and I say film in the most purest sense). Fay Wray is the original scream queen and this is not up for debate. Sure, there are parts that are unintentionally laughable but overall it never gets boring. Actually, the creature fight scenes are pretty fascinating and well-choreographed. Kong has skill and don't play around!

This was groundbreaking cinema that paved the way for monster movies of all sorts, including Godzilla. I look forward to their highly anticipated rematch.
