When I was a kid I got the original 1933 Kong for my Birthday on VHS. I still have the video tape, though I've watched it so often it no longer really works. So I was happy to get the movie on DVD for my most recent birthday. I've also gone to see Peter Jackson's new version twice. I like it, but it falls short of the original. It's an okay movie with moments of greatness. Still, it's probably my second or third favorite movie of the year, it's easy for me to forgive a movie for it's flaws when it has dinosaurs fighting a giant gorilla. That's just cool.
