Show Notes

Happy first birthday to us here at NNUTS! For this year's version of what we might call "Monster March", we bring you the first part of an arc about the new Legendary Entertainment monster franchise. From Kong to Godzilla, we'll be covering the history of these behemoth beasts as we prepare for them to square off on the silver screen once again. How tall is Kong? Does he love the damsel in distress? Just like we said about the Invisible Man one year ago, here we witness the portrayal of the monster evolve with the technology available through the years. But throughout every interpretation one truth remains: 'twas beauty killed the beast! 

Media covered:

King Kong (1933)
King Kong (1976)
King Kong (2005)
Kong: Skull Island (2017)
