Bungle in the Jungle
Yesterday I saw King Kong, which ran twice as long as it should have. The acting was awesome. Jack Black, Adrian Brody and Naomi Watts are all favorites of mine, and their acting kept me from leaving the theatre. The movie lost me when Skull Island was full of dinosaurs (brontasauruses, velociraptors and tyranasaurus rexes), and the main characters just ran after the overgrown gorilla. Hello, people, animals, which have been extinct for a long time, are running around prolific as mice, and you guys are chasing the one big ape to take back to civilization.
Although I like the point of the movie that people often destroy the things they love, the story is just plain silly. Also, I didn't understand why the bats suddenly started attacking Kong. I enjoyed the overgrown bugs and worms. I did excuse the extremely long story occasionally and give in to the suspense.
