King Kong, Donkey Kong, Hong Kong, Kang Kong and Leng Kong...

Okay, I guess everyone would have watched the biggest movie of this Christmas. Did you like King Kong? Im not trying to do a review here...am abit late for that...but here's my opinion.

What's Peter Jackson trying to tell us? Or for that matter show us? The ape in love with the woman? Wat the heck is wrong with this movie? Its suppose to be a super fantasy thriller flick, not a love story. Damn, the woman dances in front of Kong and made him laugh? The spirit of the Kong is lost in this movie, lost by PJ forever... It might have been his dream to direct a Kong flick, but nope, IMHO, it failed. Its another popcorn flick, just eye candy and stuff. Nothing much to inspire you. Its just another remake. If you don't follow what I'm saying, most probably you haven't watched it, but damn, King Kong went ice scating with the heroin...what else to come, dragons and Aragorn? This movie would have proved once and for all that PJ is an excellent director, ofcourse coming after the huge success of LOTR but he's a bad bad story teller...Let see what he comes up with next. Maybe he should focus more in his own storyline/ stories rather than doing adaptations.

You have to wait till the end of the movie the remotely identify with the classic Kong if you're a fan. I think probably the most exciting and sentimental scene in the movie would be Kong on top of the Empire State building fighting of the bi-planes. It stays true to the original flick. Rest is passable. Its a mixture of Jurrasic Park, and some bug movies plus tarzan and...I could go on with this forever...

[+] But to be fair here's some non-biased review of the movie;

[+ King Kong's name is certainly unique. So the post title would suggest the varieties of Kong that I could think of. Donkey Kong is the classic arcade game of an Ape. Hong Kong is obviously Hong Kong (hahaha). Kang Kong is a leafy vegetable famous in this part of the world. And Leng Kong is a jelly type stuff found in drinks in Malaysia.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
