    I've not seen the film yet, but how many films have you watched?

    In terms of acting, "Giant" is a film were the acting is rather
    good, Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, James Dean are a tough act to follow ?

    However I am rather partial to declaring Bergmanns "The Seventh Seal" rather an epic on a par with Giant in terms of a great film but with a very different approach.

    Bergmanns trippy, Surreal film treatment with a sprinkling of Apocalyptic Nilisium, make this a must see for people yearning an alternative to high budget excessive eye candy cinema and hairy big monkeys?

    I'm sure the CGI effects are stunning in King Kong though, looking forward to watching it ?

    Haven't seen it yet (just starts over here in Germany today), but the trailer looked promising. As for acting - well, it's definitely not going to be the best movie in this respect simply because the genre doesn't offer much in terms of the actors playing out their talent. E.g. you certainly can see much more of Adrian Brody in "The Piano Player" and there's a long line of other movies that could easily beat Kong. I think however, that the effects are gorgeous and will be hard to top off for anyone for some time.

    I've seen the movie yesterday here in Germany and I really liked it. 3 hours of finest CGI and what is more impressing, seeing Andy Serkis (aka Gollum) as Kong. You know, Serkis is the first star of a new kind, he donates movement and facial expressions and thus character to CG models without being visible himself.
    In these terms the movie can certainly reach new heights, Serkis defines a new class of actors and that is groundbreaking.

    I can say, I really enjoyed the whole film. 3 hours. Even the first hour without Kong is nice cause they build a pretty 1930's NY. And Naomi Watts isn't mean to the eyes either.

    No but I did tell the kids they were diabetic - it saves a lot of money on sweets!

    Well, that's really not such a bad idea, too much sugar early on in life raises the chances of becoming diabetic later on in life.

    I've seen to many films to count. Since a child i''ve been a lover and study of fine acting both stage and film. I thought Naomi Watts delivered a great performance in this film. Let me know what you think when you see it.
