King Kong is Peter Jackson's breathtaking remake of the classic 1933 film about a giant gorilla. It is an action adverture film set in New York City in the 1930s that won three Oscars.
The plot is both gripping and terrifying. A film-maker takes his cast and crew on a boat to explore a mystery island. When they get there, they meet unfriendly natives, dinosaurs and all kinds of huge animals and insects. Those who escape head back to New York with an unwanted guest on board!
The acting is brilliant. The biggest star of the movie is obviously King Kong himself, Ш but Naomi Watts is extremely believable as the woman King Kong falls in love with. Jack Black gives a spectacular performance as the ambitious film-maker. As for the special effects, they are absolutely fantastic!
All in all, King Kong is one of the best films I've seen in a long while. It's perhaps a little long at 3 hours 10 minutes, but apart from that it's an outstanding film. If you only see one film this year, this should be it!
Charming and clever, 'The Princess Diaries' is about an ordinary American teenager who suddenly discovers she's a princess! Meg Cabot's writing is highly entertaining. From the moment I started reading the first chapter, I couldn't put it down!

The mystery and suspense continues tonight at 9:30 on Channel 4 with the third episode of this outstanding series. Excellent character profiles and storytelling.
If you are a fan of pop music, you'll probably enjoy dancing along to these tracks, but for me, the lyrics were just far too repetitive and completely unoriginal.
