We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Saw it last night and although Ms. Yazel's timeline A Timely Guide To 'King Kong' For the Fidgety is simplistic, it is a helpful guide for taking bathroom and concession stand breaks. King Kong, the story of beauty over beast is back in a BIG way and Peter Jackson has paid tribute to the Old Hollywood by using today's special effects with yesterday's comedy and drama and film for entertainment's sake attitude. Is it too long? You bet it is, and you will also need to suspend your level of disbelief when Kong races through the jungle swinging Naomi Watts (the beauty character) like a Barbie who in real life would have had every bone in her body broken and face crushed. Likewise when Jack Black (Carl the spineless movie producer, there's one in every bunch) and the rest of the rescue group are seen running for their lives as Brontosauruses stampede over them, run past them and on every which way around them and yet, most will survive to go on and on and on until some other prehistoric creature bites. Oh yes and I forgot to mention the gruesome cannibals but I recommend you stay sit in your seat and go with it. This is a movie worth seeing on the big screen but you may want to leave the kiddies at home.
