I guess I just can't take Kong seriously.

I mean, if you guys see it, I'll be interested in hearing your opinion. But..... ....... I don't know, I suppose I have too many connotations and baggage for this to work.

But perhaps this rather unenlightened standpoint will pass. The previews for themovie isn't helping, though

Rotten Tomatoes 20-1 fresh so far. Critics like it, actually it looks like their are a few good films headed our way this Christmas. It's about time.

Well, the original from 1933 is considered an all-time classic, and while this version will definitely be spruced up with current special effects, Jackson has remained committed to the original.

As long as it isn't like the 1976 remake. That was painful to watch.

I keep seeing the commercial with Fix You in it (it's just the track w/ no vocals). I wonder if it's in the movie. For some reason it makes me laugh hearing that

I'll see it if it comes in IMAX, but otherwise will just wait for the rental.

C'mon baby, I'm all dressed up for you and I even wore some AXE even though it irritates my fur. Come watch me get it on with Naomi Watts.

How many times has King Kong been made and re-made? I mean how different can the sagas get? I will wait for the rental - there are a lot of other original screenplays I'd prefer to see than some giant hairy ape thing bopping around New York!

I didn't know until I read it yesterday, that Andy Serkis (Gollum) plays Kong. They filmed him and then digitally made him into Kong-how cool is that?

This is one reason why I've never watched Titanic. Someone told me the boat sank.

I don't know exactly how many times, but this one appears to be the third version (not counting the dozens of parodies, saw the Wallace & Grommit movie last Saturday and that one also has some King Kong moments in it). And I don't mind whether it's an original screenplay or not. I've seen some great movies that were remakes (Scorcese's Cape Fear, De Palma's Scarface) where I never saw the original version.

This is the 3rd version of King Kong.
The original with Fay Wray and Robert Armstrong was released in 1933, the other remake was 1976 with Jessica Lange/Jeff Bridges, and was set in modern (well at the time, now 30 years old) times and had Kong climb the twin towers of the WTC instead of the Empire State Building. This one is set back in the time of the original from the previews.
There have been other movies spawned by King Kong such as Son of Kong and King Kong vs. Godzilla, but this is the 3rd version of "King Kong".
The 1933 original as phanan points out is a classic, and anyone interested in this new version would serve themselves well to also rent and watch the 1933 version. By the same token, avoid the 1976 version at all costs.
