King Kong (2005)

How does one remake a beloved classic? If you're Peter Jackson, you look deeply within the original work for flaws, and smooth them out. In King Kong (1933), a filmmaker hops on a ship with a camera and a pretty girl hoping to make a movie about a giant ape. Now with more logic and personal history, Carl Denham (Jack Black) and Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts) spring to genuine life. Jackson also replaces the bland hero of the original by bringing on board dashing screenwriter Jack Driscoll (Adrien Brody) so that Denham's movie will have a story. read more...

Big Fish (2003)

With Big Fish, the former boy genius director Tim Burton works from two new angles. He embraces the art of storytelling for the first time and gives us his first glimpse of "realism." It may make Burton sound like a no-talent hack for never trying these basic things before. Very simply, Burton has up to now only been interested in characters and places. He has conjured up bizarre, damaged heroes and villains, placed them within the context of some lopsided world, and set them loose. read more...

The Fly (1986)

Director David Cronenberg has always been fascinated with the changing of the human body in all its forms -- mutation, drug addiction, etc. -- and the horror and revulsion that naturally results. In other words, he is able to exploit natural fears through supernatural means. The re-working of the 1958 horror classic The Fly gave him fertile ground to explore this theme. read more...

Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)

The sixth entry in Universal's monster "Legacy Collection" DVD series is also the least, coming 13 years after the previous entry (The Wolf Man) and a full two decades after the monster heyday in the early 1930s. Nevertheless, Creature from the Black Lagoon is an effective "B" picture that benefits from the heavy censorship of the 1950s. It prefigures films like Invasion of the Body Snatchers and I Married a Monster from Outer Space in that it uses a "harmless" genre to tap into people's real-life fears and insecurities. In this case, the "Gill Man" represents an army of teenage boys, living in a repressed and introverted society, who are too awkward and half-formed to succeed with girls. read more...
