I saw KK this morning and Peter Jackson took a great movie and made it greater. I won't spoil anything, but you can't help but love this huge Silverback.....his incredible strength and fighting ability are awesome.

Kongs personality also comes to life in this movie.....The 3 hours seems to fly-by too fast.

The critics complained about the "slow start", but I actually liked the depression-era New York footage, with Model T's and old storefronts.

KK is well worth seeing....and it will for sure get an Oscar for Movie of the Year.

I've heard nothing but positive things about this movie. Have a feeling that it can give Titanic a run for the box office record. One question you must have some kind of connection to see the film so early. So how'd you get to see it?

BP, my brother-in-law is a screenwriter and the screenwriters guild has their own private theater in Beverly Hills for their members.

So he gave me tickets, his guild card and I went ahead and took my 2 boys with me to the 10:30 show this morning.

The only bad part about their theater is no popcorn....candy...sodas and I got a $40 parking ticket!...ah well thats Beverly Hills for you.

Its Awesome....in fact there were alot of people drying their eyes when Kong died.

I have a few questions for you.

Was Jack Black the man?

Was Naomi Watts as good as everybody says?

Is your brother in law famous? (Done anything I know and treasure)

Jack Black was "the Man" and he carried the movie until Kong showed up. JB was perfect for the producer part....more like a con-artist that reminded me of his great performance in School-of-Rock.

I liked the other actors as well, Naomi Watts is beautiful and it was easy to see why Kong fell for her. She and Kong shared alot of lingering looks and quiet moments that bonded them.

My Brother-in-law was the screenwriter for "Around the World in 60 days"...which would have done better if Jackie Chan was not forced unto him by the powers-that-be in Hollywood. He told me he than had to rewrite the script and it ended up as a Jackie Chan Karate movie that he did not want. He also does alot of TNT mini-series work.

Your going to Love KK, its the best movie Ive ever seen and it included deleted scenes from the original KK.

Roger Ebert and his boy toy gave it two thumbs up and said it was excellent. I can't wait to see it and I will never hear the end of how I just want to see it because Naomi Watts is in it.


Peace

I am current very unsatisfied with this movie actually. My parents are watching it now (best not to ask how) and I just cant stay focused on it...maybe it would be better if it was on a big screen...and maybe its the fact that the computer is taking most of my thoughts...but right now Im not that fond of it...

I have not seen King Kong yet - I rarely see movies until they're on DVD - but I was following the development of it online with the video production diaries they posted on kongisking.net. Great stuff to watch if you're interested in filmmaking.

PS. JACK BLACK KICKASS!

He's not directing Halo, he's the executive producer.

Guillermo del Toro is the one Peter Jackson is currently talking with to direct, but Jacksons just doing the production work.


But they also got the writer who wrote 28 days later doing the script, so that should be interesting.
