King Kong

I saw King Kong last night with a group of friends in Seattle. It was entertaining, though it was really too long. Jack Black couldn't really do anything with what he had to work with, Jamie Bell was absolutely wasted, and even the special effects weren't, to my eyes, that great. There were a lot of moments where it really seemed to jump out, "Hey, those actors are just running in front of a green screen!"

It would have to be better than Mad Hot Ballroom to crack my top ten, and it certainly wasn't. I've still got hopes for Munich, Brokeback Mountain, and, if I see it in time, Match Point.
