I saw the film on Wednesday and was floored by it. You should definitely go and see this movie if you haven’t already. The movie was a little bit on the longer side (3 hours!) but surprisingly, it didn’t drag on. The action was intense - maybe too intense for some in fact - and the film was just done really well. The special effects were top notch and the acting was great. In fact, I’d say King Kong is my favorite action film of the year. (But then again, did it really have any competition?)

As for the videogame, I haven’t played it yet but heard it’s exceptional - although a little short. Furthermore, the game doesn’t follow the movie exactly but does a good job supplementing it from what I’ve heard. Maybe not the best purchase but certainly a great rental.

I saw the film on friday night. I must agree that i was floored. It is probably the best movie of all the time that i lived (15 yrs.). I cant see a movie to compare it with in the last 15 years, except for Pulp Fiction, later. Wow. Wow wow wow. It was awesome. I think whats great about it is that little immature kids can like it because of all the action. I must say that the action alone beats out all of Jackson’s Lord Of the Rings movies(Although they are GREAT movies). Then the story part was even better. The filming was great, and had some awesome shots in the movie. It really pulls the viewer in and you feel the pain of Kong and Anne. Also, in many parts it is comical when Kong and Anne are first aquainting them selves. So on the other hand ditzey girls could liket it too. Go see this movie, right now. In my theater, in the middle of the movie (in one special part smile ) everyone just got up and started clapping…. Also when we left everyone was crying or just dead silent.

I went and saw it on opening day and was amazed. The animation was second- to-none looking very seem less and real. And once the action started on skull island it never really let up. Kong battled like six T-Rex at the same time which was by far the best part of the movie. It was also surpirsingly funny through out the film. Overall great movie, possibly movie of the year (kinda torn between that and batman begins).

I saw it yesteryday. I didn’t think it was as good as everyone says it is. The movie simply bored the crap out of me at times. The CGI was crazy though.

15, but why would age matter? It just didn’t particularly strike me as brilliant. It had its moments though, but at points it got very boring.

Im 15 too, im just really suprised that someone could walk out of that movie with out gaining anything. Either intense action, or powerful messages and emotion through the plot. I feel sorry for you smile

Maybe it was the fact that there were too many plot holes. Or maybe it was the fact that there were too many parts that turned the main characters in it into super humans. I agree there was some action, and like I said the CGI made everything awesome.  What powerful messages can I get out of this one that I haven’t gotten out of just about every other movie out there?

I’m sure there are many other who didn’t like it.

The matrix still remains the best movie I have seen.

While there is no doublt that it was a kickass action film, you are just scraping the surface with that comment. The reason why I like the Matrix so much is because of th deep philosophical ideas embedded within the movie. And yeah I know that sounded a little complicated but basically there is more to it than an awesome ass kicking film. I didn’t really find any of this with King Kong. What I did find was kickass CGI. I really enjoy movies that make you think and of course comedies. For example Saw and Saw 2 would be two of my other favorite movies, yet I also really like movies like Half-Baked. In fact I really like almost every genre. I just happen to enjoy movies likes the Matrix more than say King Kong.

My opinion about the movie isn’t going to change in a few years, or maybe never. I think you have to deal with the fact that different people like different movies.

Nah, i think that the more mature you are the more youll like the movie. You need a certain amount of depth.

What depth are you talking about? I could tell you the main points and they ideas tried to get conveyed in a couple of sentences. You honestly have to deal with the fact that others may not like a movie you thought was so great.

LoL id most deffintely have to agree with ridv34 on this little arguement.  Not every person can like every movie you like <the thief you hail>.  Example: you say your 15 right, do you like movies like Power Rangers, or younger yet Barney.  If not, im totaly not surprised, why?  Because youve grown up, and matured like you pointed out.  People enjoy differnt movies based around what interestes they have, like I no I dont like Barney or Power Ranger movies, but they didnt make movies like that for 15 year olds, dont get me wrong though there are 15 year olds that im sure enjoy that, but they were made for a younger audience to keep the action (Power Rangers) alive, and not like action for 15+.  You say ridv34 has to mature I think you might need a lil tuning up on the maturity level, you keep complaining how someone doesnt like King Kong, and you continue to drag it on and on how he needs to like it because you think its good.  I havent seen it yet, im sure its a good movie, myself I enjoy CGI movies ALOT, so ill prolly enjoy the special effects comming from King Kong, on the same note I do also enjoy Matrix, Saw 1+2.  I think though that, people can look at movies a whole lot differnt then anyone else.  Im pretty sure even you hate a movie, and I ask why, its such a good movie, I dont even need to know what it is.  In my oppinion Illl give every movie credit, mabye they drage on our the resolution is shot, or the actors suck, but lets face it if you can get a movie off the ground and around the world, id b prety happy whether or not its good or bad.  So why do you hate that movie?  The same reason some people dislike movies you like.  Besides ridv34 never even said he thought it was the gayest movie ever, he said good thing about it, so I think you need to mature a bit, and if they come out with a movie EVERYONE likes, im sure yull be the first person to tell us we have to like it, because EVERYONE else does.
Sorry this was soo long ridv lol.
And to everyone else in this thread have a GREAT day! smile

I bet he’s not 15, he’s probably like 70 years old with no life and just comes on internet sites and likes to play around with random #### and start random ####! just accept we all have different opinions ! =P And The Plague of Tommorow Is totally right, u make sense man!! your so smart! and wow, nice long paragraph on all of that !! just hit me and made so much sense man!!! touching! well have fun ! bye bye
