King Kong

King Kong ★★★★★

Think of the coolest, most outrageous, blow your mind thing that you have seen today, and in 1933 that was King Kong.

What is accomplished in this movie, at the time it was made, is literally unbelievable. It's actually quite graphic as well. Peter Jackson didn't rip apart natives and squish them under Kong's foot in his successful remake. In 33 Kong was also chucking beauties out of hotel room windows in search of his maiden fair. I suspect Jackson thought all of that primal violence would've made his Kong a little less sympathetic to the masses.
