Mind you, it doesn't help matters when you drink a large Coke during the first half an hour, and then spend the final half an hour of the film busting for a pee.

They don't have a loo in your cinema?

Of course but, having done exactly what Ellpus did and suffering through about half of the movie myself, who wants to leave in the middle and go to the john? Altho we all know the plot and were in no danger of coming back and not knowing what was going on, still, it was just too exciting to take a bathroom break. Perhaps an intermission was in order? Anyone remember intermissions? The last movie I saw that included one was The Godfather, I think?

It seems like I am one of the few who thought that it was boring, and one of the worst movies I have seen in some time. I like a lot of movies, but I actually considered walking out of the theatre in the middle of this one. I was ashamed of being the one who picked a movie for that night.

Some people like gorilla movies and some don't.

Other gorillas usually like gorilla movies.

I kept my attention. I just didn't think it rose to any great heights (with the obvious exception of Kong climbing the Empire State!).

What a childish and gratuitous comment.

You never fail to disappoint LW.

Yea, come to think about it, I don't belive I have enjoyed any movie with an animal as one of the main characters. Like "Free Willy" or a movie where some monkey joins a baseball team and loses at first, but then wins everything. Hmm, "Amores Perros" is an exception.

But don't take me for a gorilla-hater! I could watch them on National Geographic Channel for hours and not get bored.

Well I saw those movies when I was little, and I think I might have liked them then. But at that time my favorite movies included "Robocop" and I enjoyed seeing cheesy action with Van Damme, Dolf Lundgren and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Because of that I presume that my opinion about ANY move back then is inversely proportional to my opinion now.

Just watched this movie, and was treated to 3 hours of mindless animation and dialogue punctuated here and there by a slightly scintillating shot of Naomi Watts.

I really don't see what all the hoopla was about.

I'm not sure they were tree branches (as opposed to something more like bamboo chutes), but, in any case, gorillas are primarily vegetarians; supplementing their diets with insects either deliberately or inadvertently.

King kong surely has great sound & cinematographic effects.

Also Peter Jackson has done a loyal job to keep the originality of the story intact with bits of his classic directorial imagination.

Worth a watch on a top notch home theatre and big screen tvs

i thought king kong was great. It was exciting, fun, epic, filled with some actually well done fighting sequences. I thought the CGI king kong was brilliant and so lifelike. The emotion between anne and kong was very well done. While it did go on and times, and occasionally suffered from bad editing, i still think it was a great film. I give it 8/10

How can a movie that makes you blubber for 20 minutes be just OK?
