King Kong

King Kong ★★★★

I was astonished to find out how damn entertaining, thrilling and even violent this groundbreaking classic movie is, especially when the shit hits the fan. Reminds me a bit of Titanic, in that the first half was kind of unengaging set up for a second half of insane, visceral, brilliantly staged action set pieces, except in this scenario Kong is the iceberg AND the sea, and fuck it he's the boat as well. Kong is the real O.G. When he stepped on that guy's head? Pure cinema. I wanna take a time machine back to 1933 and watch this film blow people's fricken minds. Damn.
