I only asked the '76 question because I read one of the user reviews on the '76 rottentomato page and it said the 2005 one was "wretched" and the '76 was "alright" so i figured there was some debate. I was wrong

P.J.'s King Kong is much better. First of all, I was emotionally invested with the characters, and the whole tragedy aspect is much more clear and heart shattering, because Kong is portrayed as much more sympathetic and realistic(thanks to a terrific performance by Andy Serkis). Also, it looks great.
I have some minor nitpicks, like the "brontosaurus pile-up" that was too overblown. I can't think of the others right now.
I like the original, due to the great stop-motion effects, and it's a childhood favorite of mine, so it has nostalgia points. But I prefer Jackson's.
Didn't bother with the '76 version.

Love this movie. Haven't seen the original but I've seen the 1976 version and I didn't like it.

I thought it was excellent personally. Unfortunately, it does contain Peter Jackson shlock but for what its worth 9.5/10. I swear to god that insect pit was so well done that we could be back in Peter Jackson's LOTR movies. I half expected that spider in ROTK to show up

This movie's actually really cool. Everyone else is mad because they can't contain an attention span that lasts more than 90 minutes. Great movie.
