From 'The Bible' to 'Barbarella'

Lyz already said it best.
King Kong (1976)

If this review seems more than a little lopsided, it’s because I’ve had to deal with nearly forty years of conflicting impressions about this movie. There’s the unfavorable opinion I got from it as a child, which stayed with me until I saw the movie again with adult eyes some 30 years later… and got a different, equally unfavorable impression.

I could simply say, “It’s dumb, but it certainly looks good. What harm could it do?” Then I realize: that’s probably just what Kong said.
