If You See Only One Inter-Species Love Story This Year ...

see King Kong. But don't take kids under 12 (island scenes too intense--dinosaur battles; giant, icky bugs; scary natives) and don't drink the super-size cola before you go (it's more than 3 hours long with no intermission).

The sets, costumes, special effects, and acting were all fine--in some cases astounding. But s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g out the nearly identical plot of an originally 100-minute movie into 187 minutes was a little much.

On the other hand, if you ever plan to see it, see it now--this is a film that absolutely demands big-screen viewing.

Yes, someone at work today told me it was definitely very good - and that it paid homage to the original in many ways. I've been hesitant just because I don't normally care for remakes just for the sake of special effects; but if it's been done well, than it would be worth it.
