King Kong ★★★★★

It's hard to find much to say that hasn't been said already about an 85 year old film. I thought King Kong was gripping and wildly more entertaining than a lot of more recent, higher budget films of today - the passion that went into the creation of this film shows very clearly, from the actors, the director, the animators, the entire crew. The special effects are of course dated by today's standards but you quickly learn to suspend your disbelief and I think it's fascinating what was done with a model and some rabbit fur. I would recommend King Kong to anybody. The actors are great, Fay Wray is beautiful and the film is scored superbly.
