50/50 chance I'll watch this tonight. Does anyone know of a good YT video summarizing the other 3 monsterverse films so I can get caught up without having to watch them all again?

I watched an hour of this before work, and then I’m gonna finish it up tonight. It’s all right so far. I really miss movie theaters, boys. I had to force myself to put my phone away and watch the movie.

TCM is showing all the OG films!!  King Kong is stunning from a SFX POV.  Just stunning.

I marathoned through all the major Kong movies (except King Kong Lives because it wasn't streaming everywhere...probably for good reason), and I was really floored at the visuals in the 1933 film. There's so much creativity in the use of stop motion and green screens and the way they cut corners that it's still pretty solid and creative stuff even today.

I think green or blue screen composition was just a bit after 1933, back in those days they projected image on a transparent screen behind the actor and it was almost all in camera effects.

King Kong Lives used to air on TNT and Turner South (now a defunct channel but always had a terrific movie line up for most nights if you liked 80s-90s B-movies) all the time back in the early-mid 2000s. Actually had the DVD, and might still have it. 

 

Yes, it's really bad, but it's actually rather charming.

I saw this last week. Didn't like it that much, but hope that it can ignite the US box office with the amount of vaccinated steadily rising.

 

Still don't think it'll do much better than any of the pandemic movies so far but hope I'm wrong.
