Articles, Thoughts, and Musings

RKO Films

  • King Kong (1933)
    • The movie that started it all, this film remains a marvel to watch almost 100 years later
  • Son of Kong
    • A sequel without the main monster, this film fails to recapture the magic of it's "father".

Toho Films

  • King Kong vs. Godzilla
    • It's monster versus monster as Godzilla takes on the giant ape Kong in their first ever monster mash-up
  • King Kong Escapes
    • A lackluster "sequel", this film pits Kong agains a Mecha-Kong in a battle for... not much at all.

De Laurentiis and Jackson Films

  • King Kong (1976)
    • The first attempt at a remake, this film lacks the style and substance of the original.
  • King Kong (2005)
    • Peter's Jackson's take has a lot more heart to it but frequently gets lost in all its spectacle.

MonsterVerse

  • Kong: Skull Island
    • Kong is reintroduced in this big action epic that does an okay job with the ape even if the film feels a little hollow.
  • Godzilla vs. Kong
    • Godzilla and Kong square off again in a film that much more stupid than fun.
