Rating 4 out of 4 stars (great)
Ever since attending the press screening in New York, I’ve been
obsessed with King Kong. In an unhealthy type of way perhaps, but it’s
all I’ve been able to think about, even when I try to go to sleep.
While waiting for the general release date I’ve been reading reviews
online and then getting annoyed at the reviewers. It’s a long movie.
That’s what everyone complains about. You read a lot of stuff saying
it’s disjointed, but I don’t really buy that either. To me, a movie
ends up too long when by the end of it you’re bored and waiting for
something to happen. If the end of King Kong were like the beginning
then, yes, the movie might be too long. But it’s not. (Click Here To Read More…)
