First was Kong from 1933. I watched a long time ago and rewatched these days before entering the movies to see Peter Jackson's version. I also watched the 1976 version with an actor in a Kong suit when I was a kid. Then I came in a conclusion: Peter Jackon was mastering the masterpiece.
There is the famous story of the first one here, mixed with some characteristics from the 1976 version, like the chorophorm. He really did an outsanding, fantastic job on here. An I even dare to say that Jackson's version surpasses the original one! Call this an heresy, but I think Jackson made the ultimate Kong movie! I went to the movies and watched 3 times so far, and I never get tired to watch it!
Now I'm looking forward with good expectations for the DVD, while I keeps watching the original version here on DVD that I got in a local store that sells old rarities.
