"Peter Jackson $1 (Bs film version of The Lord of the Rings (2001-2003) is the grandest achievement of 21st century cinema so far. But it is also linked to topical and social concerns including war, terrorism, and cultural imperialism. Its style, symbols, narrative, and structure seem always already linked to politics, cultural definition, problems of cinematic style, and the elemenal mythologies that most profoundly capture our imaginations.

The World of Kong : a natural history of Skull Island ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Weta Workshop--the team responsible for designing Skull Island--presents this lavishly illustrated book. The book reproduces the artwork, design sketches, and digital models created by Peter Jackson and his production team. In this 2005 re-make of the 1933 classic, Jackson expands the tragic story of the gigantic ape-monster captured in the wilds and brought to civilization. Focusing on Kong's natural habitat, the book serves to portray the tale of ambition (Carl Denham), the beast (Kong), and the beauty (Ann Darrow). Offers a visual tour of the artwork, design sketches, and digital effects depicting Skull Island that enhance the remake of King Kong directed by Peter Jackson. The World of Kong: a natural history of Skull Island. It was an uncharted island somewhere off the coast of Sumatra, it was a land whispered about by merchants and sailors. It was a place so unbelievable that no one dared believe in its existence, except one man, the extraordinary showman Carl Denham. Many will, of course, remember his show on Broadway and its tragic ending. But New York is not where the story ended, it is where it began. In 1935 a joint expedition of several prominent universities and organizations called Project Legacy was launched. Its stated mission goal was to create the first of several field guides to Skull Island, a land filled with creatures existing outside of their time, where dinosaurs roamed, evolved, and still lived. Only a year later it was discovered that the island was doomed; the geological forces that had formed the island were now tearing it apart. There were only seven more abbreviated expeditions to the island before its destruction and the start of World War II. The journals, sketches, and detailed notes of the scientists who braved Skull Island would have continued to gather dust on shelves across the planet were it not for the work of the authors of this book. Here for the first time is their work, collected in a comprehensive edition of the natural history of this lost island
