And the Best Comedy Film of the Year is...

King Kong!!!

Yep, you read that right. Well, that's what I think about the movie having watched it yesterday with the Justice League tropa after work. And gento yung kwentong kabulastugan kagahapon...

Dala ko yung retro sunglasses ko na parang mata ng bubuyog sa laki. Dan the Flash will gonna borrow it for their costume slash Christmas party today. Before we actually got inside the cinema, sinuot ko yung salamin tas kuwari bulag ako... plano talaga namin yun. I have my right hand holding Dan's shoulder for support while he ushered me towards the ticket officer. Wah epek! Ako pa nag-abot ng ticket dun sa gwardiya tas nakatingin lang ako sa malayo para authentic yung roleplaying di ba. Nag inspect pa ng bag yung ticket officer. "Koya, iinspect lang yung bag mo," sabi ni DD, sabay bukas ng bag ko at pinasilip sa gwardiya. Nagpipigil na lang kami ng tawa nun pero wah epek talaga sa ticket officer... I wonder, "Normal ba dito na may bulag na nanonood ng pelikula?" or baka ayaw lang talaga nila magtawa sa bulag na ang trip e "manood" ng sine. Kenya kenyang trip lang baga. Hehe. Anyway, to put an exclamation mark to the grand act... nung papasok na kami sa loob ng cinema... sinadya kong mabangga sa pinto. Sabay kamot sa ulo. Nyahahaha. Si Dan kasi e, gabulok na guide. *knock on the wood, trip lang po*

King Kong
Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert!

...King Kong is a comedy flick.

I dunno if it was how the producers wanted to create it but the film is funny, if not outright hillarious.

Obviously, the movie is not cerebral... it will not require you to analyze small details of physics, anatomy, and dynamics involved in the process or you'll just end up whining about how the hell things happened. And when I said "details", it means a LOT of details. An example is this scene when King Kong first saw Ann Darrow and snatched her from the wooden scaffolds where she was tied by the tribesmen. Imagine, she was tied by a rope that has the capacity to support her whole body weight and was snapped out of it without tearing her arms apart! Another thing, and the most obvious along the film, is Ann's apparent resistance to gashes... and mind you, her clothes might have been made from adamantium too. She and her elegant dress, although had been dirtied, remained unscathed until their last moments on Skull Island! And I can personally list more items to add that will make this post a page-size long! So, the thing when watching this film is to stop mulling over the details and enjoy the hillarity.

Now, why the hillarity? This is where I got disappointed. I was expecting a hardcore action depiction of the first King Kong film... a cinematical upgrade of the predecessor. Yes, the digital effects are waaaay more cooL and the storyline could pass as a good one too but I didn't like the way they've inserted humor on several scenes in the movie. I believe the director intended it. But it'L be better (for a supposed "serious" movie) if they've gone away with it altogether. Here you'll see King Kong snubbing Ann Darrow on a human fashion... y'know, those eye-rolling, and turning-it's-back thing while sporting the "nagtatampo ako" look. The poor ape is NOT soliciting sympathy that way (if that's what the director wanted to do with those scenes)... it just made King Kong looked goofy! Paramis!

My favorite funny scene though was when Kong finally subdued the last T-Rex and the humongous ape toyed with the dino's jaw by closing and opening it! Pare, riot!!!! Hehe.

To sum up, it is a fairly good watch for a three hour movie... and I was just being kind when I say that. Hehe. You'll love the movie for the cinematic scenes and the digital effects. Period.

kapatid na tin: ewan ko ba. frustrated stage performer talaga ko simula pa ng "King and I" days natin sa la salle. kelangan ko ata ng workshop pa para maging kumbinsing. hehe.

kapatid na ed: wasabi is good. wasabi is fine. if you stuck it in your nose it's a natural high! - Master Obi (excerpt from the "Art of Tar")

kapatid na racky: i dont expect to beat Mister Kong for the best comedy role in the next Academy's, but iL be honored to clinch just a seat among the candidates together with Zorro's Stallion and Jim's Dad.

kapatid na Karren: hehehe... wait till the release of another installation to the Superman films. there's something queasy in my instincts tellin that it's another crappy movie in the making.

iL add you up. salamatz sa tambay! balik balik laang.
