Time magazine looks back at first reviews of King Kong in 1933 and
disses special effects


(For my money, the hands-on stop-action animation in the original King
Kong is much more enjoyable, imaginative, and weirdly mesmerizing to
watch than the reality fudging and smudging done with some cheesier
CGI stuff in recent movies (note that the original Jurassic Park had
pretty convincing CGI)...)
