Love looms large, and forbidden, on big screen
By William Keck, USA TODAY

Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain and Peter Jackson's King Kong have more in common than trying to capture moviegoers' attention. Both explore a forbidden love that is almost certainly doomed. USA TODAY explores the similarities between the tear-jerkers.

I have not seen King Kong nor have the desire to see it. Is it a stretch?

I laughed more than i cried watching King Kong..and i wish i had not paid to see this movie (I really did not like it...sorry Peter Jackson, I thought you were a God when you presented the world with such a wonderful LOTR trilogy...no you let me down, i'll worship Ang Lee instead!)

King Kong a tear-jerker...NO WAY!

Thanks for the input. I guess I will wait for King Kong DVD from Blockbuster and watch it when I am really bored.  ;D

Indeed, the last movies I was drawn were LOTR trilogy. Great job from Pete.

When she gets to spend her first night with him...he gently gets her in his palm....then folds her underneath him! And she holds onto the hand, Very sweet! And there are a few other scenes were they share some sort of romantic intemacy too...which i find kinda weird!

Okay, puppy eyes are certainly endearing, but those blue-green eyes of Jack are just mesmerizing ... and that dazzling, innocent smile of Ennis, all the more precious for its rarity: absolutely irresistible!

Damn. Now I have to go see BBM again!
