Not A Faithful Remake Of KING KONG

The 2005 "remake" of KING KONG was not a faithful remake, despite claims to that effect. In this movie, Kong is even shown as picking up and throwing away a girl who appears to represent Fay Wray in the original movie.

Fay Wray had been tied between two stakes as a sacrifice to Kong in the original movie. Something that was not done in the 2005 version.

In the original movie the heroine screamed and struggled to get away from the monster, but in the 2005 movie the girl decides to side with the monster against the world, something which appears to have been taken from the 1976 version. There are a number of other discrepancies. I could go on, but I didn't catch them all I didn't actually watch the thing.

The special effects in the 2005 movie failed to live up to all the hype. I didn't think the computer animated monsters were very well done.
