King Kong - P. Jackson, 2005

As expected, this turned out very ten-year-old-friendly (though I doubt it would have been on a wide silver screen, with THX surround sound.)

As a parent, I appreciated the pretty scenery and the gorgeous 1930s costumes, felt gutted at the damsel-in-distress's role as a passive but wearyingly screaming victim.  
(And yes, I do realize it is a bit vain to expect feminism in a story dating from 1933. But still.)
