    I’ve appreciated PopMatters for some, but was pleased to find your writing with this piece on Jackson’s Kong. Thanks for probing this great film, and helping readers consider it alongside other treatments of the classic beast.

    Incidentally, you might be interested in fantasy film author Joshua Bellin’s contrast of two Kong films in its treatment of race at my blog: http://www.theofantastique.com/2009/03/04/a-tale-of-two-kongs/.
