A movie that had transcended celluloid and it's sequel. There really isn't much more I can say about King Kong that hasn't been said a hundred times before. Kong is such an icon, it's hard to overstate the importance of this great flick. Yes, the effects are primitive by today's standards, but when you remember to place it in the proper context of when it was made (early '30s) it is a masterpiece. To me, the film is timeless. And no one can scream like Fay Wray! Son of Kong is the lesser known sequel of Kong. A modest success, this story takes place about a month after the events of the first film. It's well worth seeing if only to see what happened to Carl Denham and Captain Englehorn as the city gives chase to sue after the massive damage by Kong. I'll be seeing you there.
