| cool monster movie
I thought this move was pretty good, mainly because of the great special effects. Kong looks great, he looks real, the skull crawlers were good and the giant buffalo. The story was pretty basic. Investors hire army guys to go to a hidden island for research but in reality it is to prove the existence of monsters. They anger Kong, so he kills some of the men and commander wants revenge. Some of the others realize Kong is of importance to the island after meeting a long lost WWII soldier. So you have the final battle between evil commander, good guys and Kong and of course the evilest beast on the island thrown in.

FINAL VERDICT: Lots of cool special effects. It's eye candy, so IMO worth watching.

Bill Randa: Mark my words. There'll never be a more screwed up time in Washington. But we can't let it stop us.


When updating Hank Marlow on everything he's missed in the past 29 years, Marlow asks what the man who landed on the moon eats. Victor responds, "Tang, Spam", and Hank just nods and accepts it.

Although Hank would know what Spam was, Tang was not invented until 1957, introduced to the public until 1959, and popular until the mid-1960's. Given Hanks dim-witted curiosity, the chances he wouldn't ask "What's Tang?" are unlikely.
