Just my opinion.

We have a split decision. My left thumb up; my right thumb down. I really loved how the "connection" between Ann and Kong developed. In the original movie, Ann was terrified of Kong all the way to the end. In this one, a genuine affection between the two grows. I liked that.

I liked Kong too. A very realistic, believable primate; scarred, and just a bit ugly without being repulsive.

I thought the actress who played Ann was excellent. Kong wasn't the only one who connected with her.

I felt both Jack Black and Adrian Brody were miscast. Both did an adequate job of acting, but I didn't find them believable in their roles. Perhaps that has to do with the two actors who played their parts in the original. Black wasn't "huckster" enough, and Brody wasn't masculine enough.

I felt many of the jungle scenes were a tad over the top. I mean, Kong didn't fight just one T-REX. NO! He had to fight three. Giant worms, cockroaches, bats, yada yada yada. I loved the kid shooting the giant wasps(?) off Brody with a Thompson submachine gun while Brody was jumping and thrashing around. Having fired one of those things, I can tell you they are difficult to fire accurately. They rise as you fire. Realistically, Brody would've been swiss cheese. Those things were Just a bit overdone for my taste.

The sets and effects were terrific. Sound was excellent but not spectacular. It was neither too little nor too much. Overall, an enjoyable but flawed effort.

Again, that's just how I felt. YMMV!

I thought it was good but nothing spectacular, great visual effects although it would have been nice if the movie was mixed in DTS. It's not a movie that I would watch multiple times, my wife and son had the same thoughts.

Bray, the speakers are sitting idle in the spare room. I had intentions of setting up and trying the 60s as two centers on either side of the TV but the 150 and 100 sounds so good above and below that I haven't done anything with the 60s. I'll be replacing the HK with a 5 ch. amp and a processor so at that time I'll set the 60s up with the HK either in my son's room or maybe our bedroom. Whenever I get a chance to play around I think I'm going to bring them out to the new room just to see how they stack up against the 80s in that environment.

I've been listening to Fiona Apple's new CD "Extroadinary Machine" What a great CD. She put a lot of emotion into this one. It has a very jazzy sound to it, but also rocks. The next CD I'm looking forward to is from the Red Hot Chili Peppers due out in May. One of my all time favorites was Californication. Another artist I like is Poe, but it doesn't seem like she will ever release another one.

Loud ZZ Top sounds like a great idea.
Thanks
