Mad Red

The Second Biggest Silverback I've Ever Seen

laurie_robey and I saw King Kong today. Quick and dirty review: Too damn long.

The problem with being too in love with your own project, is you linger over things. This would have been a great movie at an hour and forty-five minutes.

Three hours and ten minutes? I'm sorry, you need to trim the fat. King Kong has a very compact storyline. (What's interesting, is that the original has the exact same problem -- so in that regard, it was a very accurate remake.)

I could also have done without Collapse ) That's the kind of thing people are referring to when they talk about "gratuitous."

Aside from that, it was pretty good.
