It's a lengthy and rewarding piece. The over three hour run time might seem standoffish at first but you won't regret investing the time in watching this movie.
The star of the film, Kong, is wonderfully anthropomorphic and you can readily identify with his nonverbal communication thanks to the work of Andy Serkis.
A great and satisfying film. I am always saddened at the tragic ending. Prime Video has you covered this holiday season with movies for the family.

Director: Peter Jackson. As their stories are revealed and intertwine, the rascals and heroes of these mean streets are presented with such heart and beauty, I was sorry when it wrapped up.
The writer who came to mind most clearly during the reading was Jimmy Breslin, who shares his insider's love of New York, his journalistic background, his talent for dialogue and beautifully wrought farce.
Which is not to omit the larger implications behind the humor. Well done. Oct 30, David Schaafsma rated it really liked it Shelves: fictionst-century.
This James McBride can write! After reading a slew of grim, apocalyptic books I turned to the kind of book people used to call rollicking, where we meet a wild cast of nicknamed characters who get involved in a wild goose chase of an adventure.
Now, in keeping with the random synchronicity of my reading, this book does document a time, , when knives changed to guns as booze turned to heroin in Brooklyn, it doesnt lie about that, but the emphasis in the story is more on hope than many of the This James McBride can write!
Deacon King Kong is less about the horrors and more about storytelling as the glue that holds a community of diverse elements--folks from Louisiana, Barbados, Puerto Rico, and so on--together.
A paen to a time when we were less divided based on our differences than today, less angry and fearful. As someone who lived and loved , it felt very nostalgic to me in many ways.
The story is kind of a hoot. Basically shoots off his ear. Will Deems find and kill his old coach?! Will he ever play baseball again?!
There are many threads in this book, but the central shaggy dog story is about a guy who wants help finding a valuable piece of art work said to be worth 3 million.
And no one knows where this piece of artwork is. A fun, funny, rollicking book, with an unlikely romance between an older black church lady and an even older Irish cop that gives the tale warmth.

There were moments that I did not want to put the book down. And, then, there were moments that I was ready to throw the book at the wall and pick up something else.

As a reader, I want to thank James McBride with leaving me with some jewels that I shall always remember: " The best way I can describe it is back to the roller coaster analogy.
However, there are two coasters. One with several hills, flips and dips. And, another that looks like it is going to thrill you, but once you get on, you realize that it is all an optical illusion.
It is just a baby roller coaster that you wish you never stood in line for. Unfortunately, Deacon King Kong is the latter. Jan 15, Will rated it it was amazing Shelves: giveaways.
James McBride has written an entertaining and very funny, witty novel with laugh-out-loud dialogue and even a touch of slapstick.
However, while humorous, this is also a very serious and disturbing novel as McBride confronts issues of racism and the problems that often spring from public housing such as poor conditions, violence and drugs.
A tricky balance, but one that McBride handles 4. A tricky balance, but one that McBride handles successfully, as he has in his previous work. Set in New York, a large cast of characters populate the book and give voice to the story: those living in public housing and its church members, police, drug dealers and those involved in Italian organized crime.
McBride excels here, his characters come to life, some nearly jumping off the page. While the characters can often be comic in nature, McBride also writes scenes that are heartfelt and true, scenes of great poignancy.
I must return to the dialogue in regards to the characters. The affectionate verbal sparring between the central character, Sportcoat, and his friend Hot Sausage, two elderly drunks, is simply priceless.
The next time a friend is talking crazy nonsense, I hope I remember the expression Is your cheese done slid off your cracker?
I had never heard that one and it, along with many others, delighted me. As far as the narrative itself, this is where I could pick at things and I needed to step back for a few days before a final rating and review.
McBride takes the reader on a wild ride. Unfortunately, at times, I thought it all a bit convoluted with a raise of an eyebrow at certain turns in the plot.
While completely enjoying the ride, I had some mixed feelings on structure and whether the story worked completely.
I had to stop and remind myself that this really is, in essence, a comedic novel and that what I was apt to criticize was generally in keeping with that basic concept.
In the end, I decided that I had such a good time that I could ignore that need to pick at the plot details. This book was a balm for my soul, a portrait of a black church community circa with sweet characters well, most of them , interconnections that stretch back decades, and a plot with more than one mystery at its heart.
I loved it. May 11, Amerie added it Shelves: amerie-s-book-club. In his deft hands, the exploration of such themes within a premise in which a perpetually drunk deacon shoots a teen drug dealer is not depressing or gratuitous, but intimate, funny, and full of hope.
And most importantly, stay safe! Aug 17, Karen rated it it was amazing Shelves: bookclub-booktopia , oprah-bookclub-reads , nyt-topbook-of Which had emptied of boats, ships, tankers, dreams, money, and opportunity the moment the colored and the Latinos arrived.
And still New York blamed you for all its problems. What a great read! James McBride brings the characters in this book alive.
Sportcoat, Sausage and Sister Gee will stay with me for a long time. Jul 02, Gretchen Rubin added it. A wonderful, sprawling novel with lots of engaging character and suspense about why they're doing what they're doing.
McBride always brings the fire, and this one is no exception. A host of quirky characters drives this neighborhood novel brilliantly told with vigorous prose that ties in neighborhood history.
More to come Deacon Sportcoat is derisively McBride always brings the fire, and this one is no exception.
Deacon Sportcoat is derisively referred to as Deacon King Kong after the homemade hooch made by his friend, Rufus. Obviously being a frequent imbiber of the liquor had earned him this moniker.
Sportcoat was never fond of the name, but that never stopped him from overindulging. The church is not perfect and neither is their favorite deacon, Sportcoat.
When Sportcoat shoots the local drug dealer, everyone fears for Sportcoat's life. He remains unfazed. Sportcoat feels like he has established enough of a rapport with Deems Clemons the local drug dealer that should give him some latitude.
How will this play out? There is a mini side plot going on in the novel, and though it adds some mystery I didn't think it was entirely necessary and serves as a minor irritant.
The way McBride allows this to unfold is gorgeous, heartening in its denouement. This was thoroughly enjoyable and sure to be an early favorite.

Great story telling. Liked it even more than The Good Lord Bird. Aug 18, David rated it really liked it. Deacon Cuffy "Sportcoat" Lambkin walks out into the plaza of the Causeway Housing Projects, bombed on homemade King Kong and shoots 19 year old drug dealer Deems Clements' ear clean off.
Despite not remembering a thing about the incident, Deacon "King Kong" is clearly a dead man walking. Despite its pulpy start, this is really a golden hued memory of growing up in the projects in the late 's.
While Spielberg defined the 80's in suburban America, this is McBride's recollection of growing up Deacon Cuffy "Sportcoat" Lambkin walks out into the plaza of the Causeway Housing Projects, bombed on homemade King Kong and shoots 19 year old drug dealer Deems Clements' ear clean off.
It's a vibrant multi-cultured community where the Irish cop is honest and in love with the black minister's wife, where the Italian smuggler wants nothing more than to settle down with a plump wife but still lives with his mother who gardens with the drunk black deacon.
Where the Dominican numbers runner is honest and the drug dealers leave the plaza empty till noon so the churchgoers can gossip around the flagpole.
It's also about second chances late in life and the possibility of love. It's a far warmer story than the opening would have you believe and in McBride's hands that's still a great thing.
Throw in a McGuffin or two, some botched assassinations, some miracle cheese and an army of red ants and you've got a rose coloured recollection of growing up in the Brooklyn projects from an accomplished storyteller.
Jun 17, Samantha rated it it was ok. Lord save us all from the book hype machine. Deacon King Kong was charming and clever, and McBrides chops are a writer are valid, but this book was way, way overhyped.
I had lofty expectations for this after reading loads of glowing reviews and endorsements, but for me it was The humor is notable and the plot is structurally interesting or at least had the potential to be but on the whole its a slow read and not in a good way , too dialogue driven, and largely fails to engage.
I Lord save us all from the book hype machine. I kept waiting for all of the chattiness of the prose to culminate in something meaningful, but the book just never got there.
Jun 12, Truman32 rated it it was amazing. Personally, I find it so much easier to write negative book reviews than reviews for books that I really liked.
Maybe it is just me but comparing poor plots and uninteresting characters to poop, fecal matter, defecation, excrement, dung, crap, or stale farts sprout quicker in my mind than dandelions in a June yard.
For example, check out this beauty: This week Patterson dropped his most recent poor excuse for a mystery on us like my Schnauzer, Heinrich, dropped several particularly crumbly Personally, I find it so much easier to write negative book reviews than reviews for books that I really liked.
Why I dozed off several times just writing that dog. This thing is fantastic. Now many of you might remember McBride from his victorious triumph in winning the National Book Award an event made even more memorable when McBride, while giving his acceptance speech, thanked his favorite brown loafers and plaid slacks and then mooned the distinguished audience of publishers, authors, panelists, and other assorted riff raff that haunt these events looking for the right moment to grab all the free cold-cuts and imitation shrimp they can wrap in a napkin and jam down into a pocket book, knapsack, or trouser pocket.
Did I mention that Deacon King Kong is wonderful? It is. This is the story of an African American community in Brooklyn in For no apparent reason a local drug dealer gets shot by the alcoholic church deacon, Sportcoat.
It is funny and thoughtful and most of all, it is full of heart. There is a well-known Hillary Clinton proverb that says it takes a village to raise a child.
Deacon King Kong shows that the right village raises everyone in the community. It provides support, help, laughs, love and so much more.
As this is a positive review about one of the best books I have read so far in this miserable year, I would like to apologize about how god-awfully boring this review is.
I truly wish Deacon King Kong was a stinker so I could dazzle you with my scatological wordplay. Alas, no. This is a 5-star review.
I apologize. The Good Lord Bird could not have achieved the level of success without you. Readers also enjoyed. Literary Fiction. New York. The character first appeared in the novelization of the film King Kong from RKO Pictures , with the film premiering a little over two months later.
The film received universal acclaim upon its initial release and re-releases. In the s, Toho produced King Kong vs. In , Dino De Laurentiis produced a modern remake of the original film directed by John Guillermin.
Another remake of the original , this time set in , was released in from filmmaker Peter Jackson. The most recent film, Kong: Skull Island , set in , is part of Legendary Entertainment 's MonsterVerse , which began with Legendary's reboot of Godzilla in A crossover sequel, Godzilla vs.
Kong , once again pitting the characters against one another, is currently planned for The character of King Kong has become one of the world's most famous movie icons, having inspired a number of sequels, remakes, spin-offs, imitators, parodies, cartoons, books, comics , video games, theme park rides, and a stage play.
In the original film, the character's name is Kong, a name given to him by the inhabitants of the fictional " Skull Island " in the Indian Ocean , where Kong lives along with other oversized animals, such as plesiosaurs , pterosaurs and various dinosaurs.
Kong escapes and climbs the Empire State Building , only to fall from the skyscraper after being attacked by airplanes with guns.
Denham comments "it wasn't the airplanes, It was beauty killed the beast", for he climbs the building in the first place only in an attempt to protect Ann Darrow, an actress originally kidnapped by the natives of the island and offered up to Kong as a sacrifice in the remake, her character is named "Dwan".
A pseudo-documentary about Skull Island that appears on the DVD for the remake originally seen on the Sci-Fi Channel at the time of its theatrical release gives Kong's scientific name as Megaprimatus kong  "Megaprimatus", deriving from the prefix " mega- " and the Latin words " primate " and " primatus ", means "big primate " or "big supreme being" and states that his species may be related to Gigantopithecus , though that genus of giant ape is more closely related to orangutans than to gorillas.
Merian C. Cooper became fascinated by gorillas at the age of 6. As an adult, Cooper became involved in the motion picture industry.
While filming The Four Feathers in Africa, he came into contact with a family of baboons. As the story was being fleshed out, Cooper decided to make his gorilla giant sized.
Cooper stated that the idea of Kong fighting warplanes on top of a building came from him seeing a plane flying over the New York Insurance Building , then the tallest building in the world.
However I always believed in personalizing and focusing attention on one main character and from the very beginning I intended to make it the gigantic gorilla, no matter what else I surrounded him with".
When designing King Kong, Cooper wanted him to be a nightmarish gorilla monster. As he described Kong in a memo, "His hands and feet have the size and strength of steam shovels; his girth is that of a steam boiler.
This is a monster with the strength of a hundred men. But more terrifying is the head—a nightmare head with bloodshot eyes and jagged teeth set under a thick mat of hair, a face half-beast half-human".
O'Brien on the other hand, wanted him to be almost human-like to gain audience empathy, and told Delgado to "make that ape almost human".
The end result which was rejected was described as looking like a missing link. For example, Delgado streamlined the body by removing the distinctive paunch and rump of a gorilla.
Cooper was very fond of strong, hard-sounding words that started with the letter "K". Some of his favorite words were " Komodo ", " Kodiak " and " Kodak ".
Cooper's friend Douglas Burden's trip to the island of Komodo and his encounter with the Komodo dragons was a big influence on the Kong story. He loved the name, as it had a "mystery sound" to it.
It was simply referred to as " The Beast ". RKO executives were unimpressed with the bland title. David O. Selznick suggested Jungle Beast as the film's new title,  but Cooper was unimpressed and wanted to name the film after the main character.
He stated he liked the "mystery word" aspect of Kong's name and that the film should carry "the name of the leading mysterious, romantic, savage creature of the story" such as with Dracula and Frankenstein.
Because David O. Selznick thought that audiences would think that the film, with the one word title of Kong , would be mistaken as a docudrama like Grass and Chang , which were one-word titled films that Cooper had earlier produced, he added the "King" to Kong's name in order to differentiate it.
In his first appearance in King Kong , Kong was a gigantic prehistoric ape. Like most simians, Kong possesses semi-human intelligence and great physical strength.
Kong's size changes drastically throughout the course of the film. While creator Merian C. Cooper envisioned Kong as being " 40 to 50 feet tall ",  animator Willis O'Brien and his crew built the models and sets scaling Kong to be only 18 feet 5.
This did not stop Cooper from playing around with Kong's size as he directed the special effect sequences; by manipulating the sizes of the miniatures and the camera angles, he made Kong appear a lot larger than O'Brien wanted, even as large as 60 feet I was a great believer in constantly changing Kong's height to fit the settings and the illusions.
He's different in almost every shot; sometimes he's only 18 feet tall and sometimes 60 feet or larger. This broke every rule that O'Bie and his animators had ever worked with, but I felt confident that if the scenes moved with excitement and beauty, the audience would accept any height that fitted into the scene.
For example, if Kong had only been 18 feet high on the top of the Empire State Building, he would have been lost, like a little bug; I constantly juggled the heights of trees and dozens of other things.
The one essential thing was to make the audience enthralled with the character of Kong so that they wouldn't notice or care that he was 18 feet high or 40 feet, just as long as he fitted the mystery and excitement of the scenes and action.
Concurrently, the Kong bust made for the film was built in scale with a foot Godzilla and King Kong Escapes. For more details on these versions of the character, see below.
This resulted in King Kong This Kong was an upright walking anthropomorphic ape, appearing even more human-like than the original. Also like the original, this Kong had semi-human intelligence and vast strength.
In the film, Kong was scaled to be 42 feet This Kong had more or less the same appearance and abilities, but tended to walk on his knuckles more often and was enlarged, scaled to 60 feet Universal Studios had planned to do a King Kong remake as far back as They finally followed through almost 30 years later, with a three-hour film directed by Peter Jackson.
Jackson opted to make Kong a gigantic silverback gorilla without any anthropomorphic features. This Kong looked and behaved more like a real gorilla: he had a large herbivore's belly, walked on his knuckles without any upright posture, and even beat his chest with his palms as opposed to clenched fists.
In order to ground his Kong in realism, Jackson and the Weta Digital crew gave a name to his fictitious species Megaprimatus kong and suggested it to have evolved from the Gigantopithecus.
Kong was the last of his kind. He was portrayed in the film as being quite old, with graying fur and battle-worn with scars, wounds, and a crooked jaw from his many fights against rival creatures.
He is the dominant being on the island, the king of his world. But, like his film predecessors, he possesses considerable intelligence and great physical strength; he also appears far more nimble and agile.
This Kong was scaled to a consistent height of 25 feet 7. We assumed that Kong is the last surviving member of his species.
He's the last of the huge gorillas that live on Skull Island He's a very lonely creature, absolutely solitary. It must be one of the loneliest existences you could ever possibly imagine.
Every day, he has to battle for his survival against very formidable dinosaurs on the island, and it's not easy for him.
He's carrying the scars of many former encounters with dinosaurs. And he has never felt a single bit of empathy for another living creature in his long life; it has been a brutal life that he's lived.
In the film Kong: Skull Island , Kong is scaled to be feet He also stated that the original look was the inspiration for the design, saying:. This is something that is its own species.
That version is very much a scaled-up silverback gorilla, and ours is something that is slightly more exaggerated. A big mandate for us was, How do we make this feel like a classic movie monster?
Co-producer Mary Parent also stated that Kong is still young and not fully grown as she explains, "Kong is an adolescent when we meet him in the film; he's still growing into his role as alpha".
While one of the most famous movie icons in history, King Kong's intellectual property status has been questioned since his creation, featuring in numerous allegations and court battles.
The rights to the character have always been split up with no single exclusive rights holder. Different parties have also contested that various aspects are public domain material and therefore ineligible for copyright status.
When Merian C. Cooper created King Kong, he assumed that he owned the character, which he had conceived in , outright. Cooper maintained that he had only licensed the character to RKO for the initial film and sequel, but had otherwise owned his own creation.
In , Cooper began to feel something was amiss when he was trying to get a Tarzan vs. King Kong project off the ground for Pioneer Pictures where he had assumed management of the company.
After David O. Selznick suggested the project to Cooper, the flurry of legal activity over using the Kong character that followed—Pioneer had become a completely independent company by this time and access to properties that RKO felt were theirs was no longer automatic—gave Cooper pause as he came to realize that he might not have full control over this product of his own imagination after all.
Cooper had assumed his rights were unassailable and was bitterly opposed to the project. In he filed a lawsuit to enjoin distribution of the movie against John Beck, as well as Toho and Universal the film's U.
Cooper's executive assistant, Charles B. FitzSimons, stated that these companies should be negotiating through him and Cooper for such licensed products and not RKO.King Kong Company at The Olympia in JANUARY 28, by KKC.
