    Kong-jitsu!

    Came across this site:

    http://www.isegoria.net/2005/12/king...g-champion.htm

    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.

                      'Tis true. I'm spoiled for movies after King Kong. I don't know how I'll ever go back to watching regular blockbusters with only one main action sequence and only a handful of good moments scattered through the movie rather than pure unstopping awesomeness for 2 hours (because the first hour, though interesting, wasn't that awesome).

                      I saw Chronicles of Narnia a few days after Kong, and despite what everyone said about brilliant effects and Tilda Swinton and really really teary moments when Aslan dies, it just.. didn't make an impression at all. After feeling sympathy for a gigantic monkey, nothing else really comes close to emulating that feeling.
                      Rad ki was made up by adolescents. I do not know who created trad ki but it was not made by adolescents. your an ass dude, Im not being a little bitch you are, your past the level of a bitch. Your beyond Bitch! If im easting my time with ki and psi, then your wasting time to prove frauds, and all shit like that! -theoutsider

                      Kick boxing is ok, but don't expect do beat a man like Rickson Gracie with that. You need a real martial art. You need Xing Yi Quan. -Emptyflower

                      The splits, how ever, have a few martial uses. Doing the splits for me, can put my fists in testical strike range.

                      dont ignore the Art for the Martial or else your just kick boxing

                      Yes i am serious, there are kicks that can block punches. we have them in Moo duk kwan.
                      I want to learn how to use them in case my arm gets broken in a fight.
                      what would you have me do? if my arm gets broke, not block punches? -sempi-stone

                          All scenes with dinosaurs in that movie should have been rated "A" for "awesome".

                            Seriously, was I the only puss in there that was holding back jerking tears at the end? I saw grown men standing in the lobby afterwords wiping away tears. I think for me it was the whole "protector" factor of Kong that got to me.

                            On a side note, it was neat how Jackson stuck to a lot of the old scenes.

                              King Kong: makes grown men weep like little girls. In more ways than one.


                              And seriously, Aslan dies. Come on. It's not a spoiler if the movie is closely based on a popular book. With all the reviews and chat about Chronicles of Narnia being an allegory for Christ merely because of the sacrifice, it's a wonder if you've managed to get this far through the internet and NOT hear about it.
