Kono, thank you.

I feel embarrassed for not knowing the site!

I'm going to organize my budget and buy several.

Thank you for the link!

The prints at that site are gorgeous.

Added as an edit: Those prints are so cool, my wife asked about originals! Any idea how much Jamio's originals sell for? I think the thrill of owning a real life original with the textures of the brush, etc...would be superlative!

Saw it last night. The giant walls & Door surrounding Skull Island have huge awesome Tiki Images of stone. THe offering of Naomi Watts has got lava waterfalls and the then the 50 ft. door's eyes glow as well.
The cannibals are the best I've ever seen anywhere.
The first act is one big F----- Tiki Bar of the first caliber!
Jack Black did a great job.

But Lewis Black would have been better.

If you go up towards the beginning of this thread you'll see a post by Mystiki. She's the one to contact with your Jamio questions. She's got the inside track.

Ship of Souls is my second favorite after Kong Tiki.

We went to see King Kong last night and it was AWESOME!!!!! Skull Island is intense. The dinosaurs and other creatures are amazing. I cried like a baby at the end. Origionally, that was why I wasn't going to go see the movie, because it is such a heartbreaker. The three hours fly by ...... Definitely go see it!

Fantastic film. Anyone notive the crate in the hold of the ship marked Sumatran Rat Monkey? As a nod to Peter Jackson's film Brain Dead (Dead Alive)

"You can't stop me, I'm a new Zealand zoo officer" i used to carry a fake new Zealand zoo pass coz i loved that film so much.

And TikiTikiTavi in my film there are a few jokes about the well endowed Kong-tiki but also as a tribute to the thousands of tikis that have lost their whoppers to Victorian prudishness.

I loved it, though it was so over the top it will take a while to digest. I hope to see it again over the holiday. It's a bit too long for its own good, but I didn't think the set-up was too drawn out. The whole sub-plot of the ship's first mate and the kid was weak and should've been jettisoned. I would have preferred if they had instead left in the shots where Ann gets past the army to approach Kong in NYC. She just sort of appears out of nowhere on a deserted street(and in the cheesiest shot of the film, imho). I suppose PJ needs something to put back into the inevitable 5 hour, 12 disk DVD set.

I loved all the in-jokes in the film, particularly the tacky Broadway dance number that apes (pun intended) the cheesy natives from the original movie. The orchestra is even playing the original Max Steiner score. It's also a nice bit of social commentary on the way "real" natives are versus the way they might be depicted by money-grubbing showbiz hucksters back in the "civilized" world. Also loved that they use Driscoll and Ann's "real" cheesy 1933 dialog onboard the ship as a rehearsal scene for the movie that Denham is shooting in the new version. Nice, too, that the final dino Kong fights is very much an homage to Willis O'Brian's '33 battle in its staging and detail (the head punches; the wrestler tumble; playing with the dead dino's jaw).

I recently read Crichton's novel "State of Fear" before seeing "King Kong," and as creepy as the real natives were in "King Kong," the natives in Crichton's book were much worse. Anyway, your comment made me think of that book because of the naive civilized character in the book who is delighted to finally meet real natives living "close to nature," only to find that was the worst mistake he ever made, to put it very mildly.

[Edited: I originally stated the book "Amazonia"--wrong book]

I thought the reference to Faye Wray being unavailable for Denham's movie because she was busy shooting a film for RKO with director Merian C. Cooper was pretty sly and probably went over a lot of heads. I recently read that Cooper's King Kong saved RKO Pictures from bankruptcy and that Carl Denham could be compared to Cooper. I have not seen it but there is a documentary on Merian C. Cooper called " I am King Kong" apparently he was quite the adventurer, risk taker and an amazing person.

For what it's worth, here's a link to a full length article I recently wrote for another retro web site, Port Halcyon, comparing '33 vs. '05: http://www.porthalcyon.com/features/200512/kong.shtml

Don't forget there's a 1976 version, too. In fact the rental DVD for that is in my player at this moment, though I've gotten only half way through. Seems pretty decent so far.
