Action Movie History 1933 (King Kong)

June 15, 2020

It's time to pull out the big guns - in the form of one big-ass ape hell-bound for destruction!

This week Jonas Högberg & Anders Hultqvist watch one of the all-time classics: King Kong. The special effects may be a bit dated in some regards, but for the most part they hold up surprisingly well - as does the ingenius sound design.

The main monkey is showing off a lot of emotions and nuanced character traits. Kong is idly checking out dead bodies, wrestles a T-Rex with the pizzazz of a showman, pulls out his Peeping Tom when window shopping in New York and goes full drama queen at the very end.

"It was beauty killed the beast."
