    I was in the crowd when they filmed the ending at the base of the towers. The actors, director and crew were all filming and it turned into an impromptu party. They finally unveiled, "Kong" dead in the plaza that night to the crowd. It was quite impressive. The film Co. had been advertising the date and time, downtown for a month prior and it drew its own crowd of fans and lookie-lou's.

    As for the film itself, I prefer the original and the Peter Jackson versions, but it was a cool event I'll never forget!!!
    The Houston Astros cheated Major League Baseball from 2017-18!!!!

    They cheated their way to a couple of League Championships & a World Series!!!!

    Is that how we teach our kids to play the game now?????

    Its my favorite version. Jackson's version was way too bloated. I see they are finally releasing it on Blu-Ray, but no 4K yet. I have it on DVD, but find it hard to go back to 480P resolutions now. LOL.

    It's also streaming in HD on HBO Max. I really like this version of King Kong, it was the first one that I saw, along with King Kong Lives.
