King Kong (2005)

Postby VideoGameCritic » August 20th, 2020, 1:42 pm

So I was digging deep into my DVD collection and pulled out Peter Jackson's King Kong. This is a pretty entertaining flick, although kind of long. The scenes of 1933 New York look amazing and are probably my favorite part.

In terms of computer effects, Kong look convincing enough but not so much the toothy dinosaurs. It makes me wonder how a decade after Jurassic Park perfected the art of rendering dinosaurs they could look so fake in a 2005 movie. I wonder if it's the same reason that the CGI effects in the Hobbit trilogy look worse that those in Lord of the Rings.

Thoughts?

Agreed. Kong's effects went a bit overboard. The more physical ones worked better.

Simple answer Spielberg was not involved.
