King Kong
Watched King Kong yesterday. It was... a lot. It was too much of everything. 'Excessive' is really the only word I have for it. Every action sequence ran several minutes too long. Well no, nearly every sequence was too long, too much, too ridiculous, too everything. It was a spectacle, sure, but I wouldn't want to watch it again. Not to mention that it's more than 3 hours long.

Two highlights:
- Andy Serkis is brilliant. I think he should receive a special Oscar or something.
- Jamie Bell!!! All grown up!!! And with a good American accent! (Well, more convincing and more consistent than Naomi Watts' at any rate.) He's gonna grow up to be a lovely leading man, should his career ever go in that direction. And they showed him dancing on the boat!! Now that made me happy, since Billy Elliot is one of my favorite movies.

Okay, that's all I have to say about that. I didn't really have high hopes for King Kong anyhow--I only went because it was my brother's birthday and he wanted to watch it--so it's not a big deal. Now for Narnia.

Yeah i saw it with my dad and i thought it was to long and every fight scene seemed to go on and on and on...but compared to the other Kong movies Peter Jackson did a good job making everything look real and the effect were cool.

Did you notice though that Naomi Watts had nearly No lines?? Probably a page worth..she was pretty much screaming and crying threw most of it.

Oh well it was free. :)
