Things I Hate: King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962 Film)

When I was a kid, I was really fascinated by Godzilla. I remember seeing this title at Blockbuster, and I begged my mom for us to rent it. This was probably the first “versus film” I’ve ever seen, and I hated it.

I suppose it was a good idea to bring two classic movie monsters in an epic battle. Though it’s interesting to note that both Godzilla and King Kong died in their original films. So shouldn’t this film be called Zombie vs. Zombie?

I don’t remember all the details of the movie, but the main reason I hated it was the ending. It ends in the ocean, and King Kong is the only one emerging from the water. Godzilla is presumed to have survived making it a “draw”. But it made it look like King Kong had the upper hand, and I was always certain that Godzilla would take down the giant beast in five minutes.
