The new King Kong -- well worth it:
Saw Peter Jackson's King Kong
yesterday. It's awesome. But the critics are right: If it had been cut down by at least a half hour, it might have rivaled the original King Kong
. ... I would have edited out some of the scenes on Skull Island. ... But, whoa, was Naomi Watts
good and hot to watch. She manages to dominate the film throughout. Really. Don't pay too much attention to all the pseudo Freudian love analysis. The relationship between Kong and Ann Darrow (Watts) is more akin to that seen in Old Yeller
. ... Both Cooper and Jackson's Kong leave the '76 Kong
in the dust. But I actually didn't mind the '76 movie. Then again I didn't mind Roger Moore as 007. ...
