I just arrived from the theater and still in shock with the new "King Kong" from Peter Jackson. It's a masterpiece. A jawbreaker. It's totally awesome! Never in my life I saw a blockbuster with so many layers of action, romance, adventure, love for the movie making and many others interpretations of a same theme. Jackson have a great sense as a director and never takes the easy way. The three hours passes by like a minute. Some of the scenes, specially in the third act, become instant classics of the movie history and will still forever in my mind. If I were Spielberg never do anything in this genre again. The moving pictures, the cinema as we know it, was just invented to Peter Jackson gave us this film. Ten!
