The trailer for this week’s throwback Thursday is for Academy Award-winning director Peter Jackson’s 2005 majestic epic of a movie, “King Kong”, starring Naomi Watts, Jack Black, Adrien Brody, and (the terrific!) Andy Serkis behind the scenes as Kong himself. In short, P.J.’s King Kong is a re-remake of Ernest Schoedsack & Merian Cooper’s 1933 original film of the same name with the same plot line and all, minus a few tweaks here and there. The one time I attempted to watch P.J.’s King Kong was through an online video-on-demand site, but the movie’s connection just faithfully buffered, so I can’t give a totally honest review here. This was before the day Netflix went boom, mind you! Anyhow, I will say one thing. P.J.’s King Kong totally enticed me as a kid. I wanted to be a lady, not just any lady, but THAT lady. Sitting in the palm of Kong’s hand at sunset. Loved by a great ape. Even now, I still dream of keeping a gorilla for a pet :). Crazy, right? No. Enchanting to the nth!
