King Kong

It's now in my top five movies of the year (not that we've had a lot to choose from, mind you). It beat the tar out of Narnia, as far as I'm concerned.

It was beautifully filmed: PJ really captured the lighting and style of movies from that era.

He also managed to turn B-movie content into an A-list flick, to the point that it was a lot of fun hearing the audience reactions in certain parts.

I've never seen the original, so I don't have that basis for comparison, but my husband says they were pretty faithful.

I was astonished to learn that Andy Serkis did Kong. Dang, I wish that man had gotten some special recognition at the Oscars. I also found myself wondering if Fran Walsh did the screams (I seem to recall from a LotR extras DVD that she's known for her bloodcurdling screams).

We also got trailers for V for Vendetta and Miami Vice.

It was just what I needed on a holiday weekend with too much to do.
