dir. by peter jackson

The single-most entertaining film I've seen in quite awhile. I wasn't really looking forward to this movie at all, but I was really blown away by it. The effects were, well, what do you expect? They were awesome. But that APE! Andy Serkis' performance, combined with the genius of the FX crew made Kong come to life - gave him a soul I never expected. I held myself tightly throughout the 2nd act, trying not to get freaked out by all the action; and I wept for the last hour of the film, it was all so touching and tragic. Go see it on the big screen, you will not be disappointed!
