Glad to see I'm not the only person who loves this movie! OK, I know a lot of people hate it. To them I say, let's agree to disagree.

I suppose one reason many people hate it is because the original is so sacred to them that they think it an insult just to remake it. I don't know what I would've thought had I seen the original first, but this was the first KING KONG movie I ever saw, so I was able to enjoy it on it's own terms. In fact this film and it's sequel (KK Lives) were the only ones my local video store had (WAAAAY back in the mid 1980s) so for awhile I had no idea that this was a remake and that the earlier movie even existed.

As for why there's no dinosaurs, I suppose the filmmakers thought that the idea would be too ridiculous that dinosaurs somehow survived on that one little island when they went extinct on the rest of the planet.

This is one of my favorite movies!

The music score was AWESOME, perfect fit!

Jeff Bridges was brilliant.

Jessica Lange was so hot!

King Kong was... well... Kong was... mechanical. But that's OK!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
