Fuck You Very Much Peter Jackson.

Seriously, why the fuck did King Kong need to be over three hours? Other than "because Peter Jackson is a tool" I'm at a loss for words. At, or around the scene where a character gets eaten alive by giant maggots (a fate he could have easily avoided by simply walking away from them), I could no longer suspend disbelief and chose to laugh at the stupidity of the film.

I hope they never let him direct anything longer than 90 minutes again. In closing don't see King Kong It's a dreadful waste of three hours.

  • You're not going to be buying the $40 deluxe box set of the Kong Production Diaries?
  • I don't think I liked the Original King Kong. There is nothing compelling to me about it.

    I saw the commercials for this and said "I don't care HOW good of a job you did (or in this case, DIDN'T do), I just don't care. I don't care, I don't care and I don't want to see it."

    Glad to hear it sucks.

    • About the only good thing I can say about the film is that most of the time King Kong looked real. They did a much better job of it than the Hulk. Had they only made the movie 90 minutes it would have been worth renting. Provided you where in the mood to see something stupid that night.

        Although some of the CG when he was carrying Ann was a bit hokey... Kong looked real, but she didn't.

        I think a 2-hour fan edit wouldn't be a bad movie, but I certainly won't be wasting my time on such a project.
  • Once the DVD is out, hopefully someone seeking a moment of glory will make a 2 hour cut of what the movie should have been.

I've finally learned what "upward compatible" means. It means we get to keep all our old mistakes. -- Dennie van Tassel
