What to make of all this King Kong excitement? Sasha Stone went nuts for it. Tim R @ mainly movies says it's the movie of the year. Still and all. It has so many strikes against it with Oscar: Remake of classic. Big apes. Dinosaurs. Jackson already amply rewarded just 2 years ago. But regardless of Oscar chances isn't it nice that December is so exciting after a very rough year? ...cinematically speaking. (Kong moves up on my Oscar charts)
Tomorrow the first major awards are announced. This time it's not the NBR but the Los Angeles Film Critics Association who are kicking it off. So without further ado my predictive stabs in the dark...
