King Kong, the Peter Jackson version

Two thoughts about Peter Jackson’s King Kong, which was on the movie channel last Saturday:

  1. Ten minutes could have been cut from each but the last act without seriously harming the movie. Too. freaking. long.
  2. A giant-bug scene so vivid and awful I had to leave the room. Yes, I’m entomophobic, but I can usually handle movie bug scenes; this was just too much for me.
