"King Kong"

Peter Jackson's 3-hour theatrical release is definitely the Director's Cut. Someday, if we're lucky, there'll be a 2-hour Editor's Cut. Anyway, it's good, but no need to rush out and see it during this busy week before Christmas. When you have more time after Christmas, it will still be there.

And Peter Jackson's big innovation is to have not just the monkey in love with the blonde, but the blonde in love with the monkey, which would be creepy ... if there was any point in thinking about it, which there is not.

By the way, you can see all my movie reviews for UPI and The American Conservative magazine going back to 2001 here.
