A friend from London named Grant Kempster just wrote and said, “Just got back from seeing King Kong this morning, and in a word…’Wow!’ Looks like Spielberg could do with learning a thing or two from Jackson when it comes to making blockbuster event films. I’d love to know what you think, but I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed it. It’s not flawless, but a damn entertaining movie that works magnificently considering it’s a ‘pet project.'”
