Carl Denham: "And now, ladies and gentlemen, before I tell you any more, I'm going to show you the greatest thing your eyes have ever beheld. He was a king and a god in the world he knew, but now he comes to civilization merely a captive - a show to gratify your curiosity. Ladies and gentlemen, look at Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World".
King Kong was a true cinema classic that inspired and amazed film lovers out there. The effect's in the movie may be dated to some and I do admit they have aged, but I got to say it's better damn impressive even around the 30's the stop motion animation looks pretty good in some scenes as this movie is 82 years old as I speck.
The movie dose have flaws but the flaws are nothing really big to ruin or stain the movie experience. Like my flaws with …

An impulsive director whisks an unknown actress to an unexplored island to capture a mythic beast on film. The Jurassic Park of its day, King Kong is the original monster movie. Unfortunately the very element that no doubt wowed audiences of the time are now its greatest handicap; the visual effects. Special effects have obviously moved on a great deal over the last 80 years, consequently the creaky stop-motion animation is rather shocking by today's standards and the close ups of the beast's face look like a glove puppet manufactured by someone whose sole information about a gorilla's visage was supplied by an attention deficit toddler. That's not to say that the original Kong is not without its charms; it has a real sense of nostalgic adventure, the other effects have fared rather …

Carl Denham invites Ann Darrow to be in his film, which h considers the greatest of all time. They go to Skull Island where oversized creatures are bred. Groundbreaking special effects for its time which include a story that is emulated countless times. You can really see the emotions of Kong based on his eyes. Its look maybe dated, but it is one of the pioneers for effects. The visuals were effective and screenplay engaging. A few lines from this classic: Carl – “Oh, no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was Beauty that killed the beast!” Jack – “He's crazy enough to try anything. When I think what might have happened today.” The only qualms I had was the swift adoration of Jack, Ann screaming despite Kong saving her from time to time from various beasts and the tenacity of …

This is one of the best monster movies ever made. And, unlike more recent movies in the genre, one the entire family can watch where parents do not have to worry about scenes of graphic violence.
"Carl Denham" (Robert Armstrong) is a high-risk-taking motion picture director known for risking the lives of his cast and crew, but always brings them back with spectacular films that garner fair reviews. He was able to gain possession of a hand-drawn map which leads to an island unknown to civilzation.
"Denham" charters a boat with a tough crew under command of "Captain Englehorn" (Frank Reicher) and his First Mate "Jack Driscoll" (Bruce Cabot). "Denham" brings on board his latest star discovery, "Ann Darrow" (Fay Wray, in her most famous role), whom he found on a New York City street …
