    Came across this site:

    And then I saw the new one last night, it's pretty good too. Kong's got some mma skills! (I won't give away any spoilers though)

    Although it would be cool to see computer generated MMA, I think I'll save my money and catch Kong when it comes out on video. I mean, there's no surprise ending, right?

    To my mind Kong's anti- T-Rex technique was pretty sub optimal, his killing move of choice involved putting his hands inside their big, spikey mouths.

    Surely huge long necks and tiny little arms equals chokes? Wait till they go for the bite and catch them in a guillotine monkey man!

    The movie however, still rocked so hard that I fear films from now on may be universally awful, as the world's supply of awesome has been entirely used up.

    It was really long, the first 3rd of the movie should have been edited severely, it was amazingly uncompelling. Also, it's pretty difficult to watch Adrian Brody's face for 3 hours without feeling sick.

    Thanks for posting the Kong info. I watched the fight scene from the original and noticed some hook punches (at about :25, :37 and 1:45), lots of clinching, and an insane seionage in which Kong tunbles over with the T-Rex as he completes the throw.

    T-Rex does a nice job defending against the single-leg takedown by using his tail to stabilize himself (at about 1:05 and 1:15).

    I'd be interested to know if animator Willis O'Brien, or anyone else associated with the 1933 production, had any experience in boxing, wrestling or judo that was applied in that fight scene.

    Edit: Well, whaddaya know. Willis O'Brien was an unsuccessful boxer early in his adult life, and brought that experience to the T-Rex fight scene in "King Kong." Read about it here: http://www.kongisking.net/perl/newsview/17/1132348426

    Son of Edit: V Thanks, Neildo. That's pretty typical for me -- I read just enough of a post to make me want to respond, and then go rip-roaring into whatever it is I have to say, without bothering to see if it's already been said. Anyway, it sounds like they had a proto-MMA think-tank going on there at the "Kong" animation set.

    Dude, it's at the bottom of the page, under the link to the video.

    Edit: I'd been wondering how and why that fight scene was so well choreographed. I had assumed that the stop-motion animators were working from footage of pro wresters (back when the bouts were fairly credible). It turns out there's an even better explanation (from IMDB):
    Both Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack had been wrestlers, and they acted out the fighting moves for the battle between the T Rex and Kong in the effects studio, before the animators shot the scene.
