ok so i saw the movie twice, once with my dad, and once with my friends. and it was FREGGIN AWESOME!!!!! i really have to hand it to jackson for this one. i remiember seeing the 76 version when i was five and loving it. until that is reciently seeing it and realizing i wanted to slap myself for ever giving it the time of day. i mean was it me or was the actress playing ann high the entire time? and to make it more stupid, kong stook up straight the entire time! but enough on that. lets get to this version.
so first off, i liked how this version had a relationship established between ann and kong. in the 76 version, kong is like the drunk, jelous. angry boyfriend. however in this one, he deeply cares for ann. i guess the issue is love not lust. in this version, when kong fights the t.rexes(which was the coolest thing ive ever seen!) if you pay attention, you'll see that he's tryin to keep his poker face the entire time. you see, he's the KING, which means that he cant show weakness of emotion. which is shown when he glances at ann only for a breif time in order to make sure she's ok. what this movie shows me is that the title of king wasn't just given to him, it was earned by killin his way to the top. and there he stayed until beauty stained his heart.
there's symbolism everywhere, all you have to do is pay attention. which when watching the movie for a second time with my friends, showes me that their as about as deep as a puddle. my dad told me to ask them what they brought back from the movie, and they said "not to get involved with white *****es." truly deep. but to me theres so much emotion throughout the movie. so many little things that people dont pick up. for instance on the empire state, when kong and ann are looking at the sunset, kong does the "beautiful" thing, and my friends said that that was stupid because ann was talking to him and he could'nt understand. but what made it sad was that she was the ONLY one who understood. everyone else thought of kong as a beast on a rampage. but no one knew that the only reason he did what he did, was because he thought she was in danger, and because he wanted to protect her. even if it ment dying.
so on that i'll stop my rant. sorry it's so long, but believe me i could have written more. i guess the reason i explained it at all is because it's such a good movie and because i think in order to fully appreciate it, you have to absorb all of it.
