The way this film makes a monster turn into a misunderstood monkey for the viewer with not even one single dialogue is just amazing. A true all time classic and a must-see for sure.

It gets pretty annoying by the , but I was so amazed by how ingenious the effects are that I'm willing to forgive the flaws and consider it a praiseworthy classic.

1933's King Kong is a revelation. I wasn't expecting to see claymation so well integrated into live action. I guess it's mostly done through rear projection, but still, the level of planning and innovation is just spectacular. The effects are frankly better than a lot of films made more than 50 years later, and I sometimes wonder how they were even achieved. The animation is expressive and detailed, and the film is surprisingly violent and even sexy from what I imagined of the era (perhaps it's the reinstatement of the "censored scenes". A true classic.
