Watch King Kong film. A film “King Kong (1976) by John Guillermin. “King Kong” was one of my all-time favorite movies when I was a teenager. It was the big ‘event’ movie of 1976 and showed on two screens in most multiplexes. The lack of an Oscar nomination was a crime. Jeff Bridges and Charles Grodin (playing a bad guy for a change) are acceptable in their roles. I think this movies gets more negative comments because they are comparing it to the original, which back in its day was the first movie of its kind (Mighty Joe Young is still better!). The romance between Dwan and Jack seemed contrived once I got older. Other aspects of the film struck me as just dumb. For movie purists, the thought of remaking a landmark film is always touchy territory. The new twist was having the emotional connection between Lange and ape. Shame you could not see it well in the dark however. The film is great fun for any movie or monster movie fan. All of the flaws are part of it’s charm and I’ve had a wonderful time with this Kong.
