King Kong was just a big, stupid, animal that was unaware of the consequences

I hope I speak for the collective Frankie, when I say, I think it's pretty well-accepted that he killed himself over her.

No, it was to see what he could see.

You're a giant ape, why not climb a building?

I got into a suprisingly huge fight over this with my friends. They watched the latest King Kong movie and they thought it was terrible. They couldn't believe that the big gorilla would be so stupid and basically kill itself. They claimed the reasoning behind Kong's ascent was nothing more than mere stupidity. I disagreed.

I think King Kong loved that woman (Ann Dorrow?) so very much. Since their first meeting whenever they were together it was a great struggle (being attacked by giant bats, the rescue team, and T-Rexs) and once Kong escaped in New York and found the woman again, he knew that he couldnt possibly be with the thing he loved. He had to choose between living without her or not living at all. Not being able to bear a life without her, he valiantly chose death.

Good movie, great story, sad but beautiful ending.

Why did King Kong climb to the top of the World Trade Center in the remakes?

If you saw the remake back when he was on his Island area there was a very high ground (Like a cliff I think?) That he ran to after battling. So maybe it was just nature for him to find the highest ground in New York to climb on. Also Love does not really make that much sense to me on why he was climb the state building, and if he was a "stupid animal" he would not have had put the female somewhere safe. Also another reason he might of have went on the building is because he was in a unknown area and if you climb the highest building he might be able to see where he could run to.

Reason # 6 why super spontaneous debates are a bad idea ; )
