My family and I watched King Kong yesterday. I was almost sure I'd love the movie considering its from the now slimmed down Peter Jackson. But still, I had my doubts... I loved LOTR:FOTR, but TTT and ROTK wasn't really that good for me. I would never ever watch those movies on DVD repeatedly. That would be insane. Anyway, after the movie, I was really disappointed. Kong himself was very well done, the movie had its fun moments, thrills, etc. But coming from WETA, the effects were poorly done. The integration of real actors with CG were just laughable, you would know that the actors weren't interacting with the scene or the CG characters. Naomi Watts was brilliant, so's Andy Serkis... some scenes were unnecessarily long... it could've been an hour long movie and I would have enjoyed it more. Weta needs more lessons on bluescreening. Still, it was an enjoyable movie, even though I was about to fall asleep during the first quarter of the movie. Being King Long
, it's still worth your time.
