Kong!

Just got out of a screening of King Kong (a day before release, nyeah, nyeah, nyeah).

For my money, Jackson has hit it out of the park again. It is not too long at 3 hours. (Just over 3 by my watch, before the credits start, as opposed to the just under 3 claimed by the studio.)

Lots of nice touches. Oodles of amazing set pieces. Laughter. Tears. Pathos. Giant bugs. And you gotta love a movie that puts screenwriters in cages.

"For my money..."

...does that mean it wouldn't be "out of the park" if you'd actually payed money??

Har! Hoist by me own rhetoric. To be clear, I did see it for free, but this is a movie I wouldn't mind paying for. In fact, I probably will.

As for the movie being too long, as others have opined, I'll say that it's too long the same way Thanksgiving Dinner is too big. I enjoyed every calorie, but can understand how someone's opinion might differ.
