Wondering why times are missing?

King Kong

Slavishly faithful to the original film, this 1930s-set fantasy follows a sleazy film producer (Jack Black) to a long-lost tropical island where he uses a young actress (Naomi Watts) to lure a gigantic ape in front of the camera. The effects are (of course) amazing, but the script shows surprising depth and emotion. Jackson is a bit indulgent at times, milking the scares/tears/whatever too long in certain scenes, but the overall effect is damnably entertaining. 187 minutes PG.
