Ding Dong, I mean King Kong

I watched King Kong a few days ago.  Wow.  That thing was bad.  The special effects were so unrealistic.  What were they thinking?  I could totally tell they were using stop-motion animation, and it was really bad animation for that matter.  You could tell King Kong and the dinosaurs weren't actually there with the actors, but added later.  And the New York City buildings were so obviously models.  And what's the deal with the movie being entirely in black and white. Come on Peter Jackson, get with it.


Oh, wait...  nevermind.  I think I saw the wrong movie.  I saw the one made in 1933.  Well, I guess I can excuse the special effects then.  I can't excuse the bad acting though.  Holy crap. There were a couple times I thought I was watching a high school play.  They might not have had computer animation back then, but I'm pretty sure they had acting.  That was invented in the 20s.

Wow! You are watching some o-l-d movies. King Kong was old when I was young and I'm old. I hated it then. I think the only requirement of acting was to be able to scream for hours at a time. Wait, that was all the actress did in the latest remake also. So glad I watched it.:(

Richard, don't forget how old King Kong is. There were NO special effects back then at all.
