KING KONG!!!


New card in the works. Famke Janssen, the actress that played Phoenix from the X-Men movies.

Since the new King Kong piece just hit the gallery, I dug this little beauty up on youtube. The trailer for the original 1933 version of King Kong.



I remember the first time I saw this, back when I was a kid. It was at a Saturday matinee movie, double feature with Mighty Joe Young. Yup, It doesn’t get any better than that!

See you next time

Thanks again

Really cool stuff Jeff, These cards are really cool! You sure are busting them out pretty quick lately. Sorry I haven't been commenting as much as I'd like but I do check the site at least 3-4 times a day. The Buffy piece is spot on likeness of Sarah, Keep it up man!

Mmm... nice Famke ! :) )

The old King Kong was fantastic ! I've always appreciated the charm and the poesy of these "hand made" FX. Especcially those by Ray Harryhausen, like Jason and the Argonauts, and my favourite Jack the Giant Killer ! All my life I'll remember this scene in which the puppet goes out his toy house and increases till he becomes a ugly giant....

Thanks Mike, I’ve been dealing with some tight deadlines lately, so for the time being things are coming fast and furious.

Manu, wow I haven’t thought of that movie in years!!! It was cool, wonderfully cheesy, but awesome and a game changer when you were only thirteen.

I kind of wish they were still using the puppets and practical effects today.

The new Clash of the Titans is out now, I haven’t seen it yet. The CG effects look mind-blowing ... but, like with the Star Wars movies, better effects didn’t improve those movies any. The CG yoda was neat, but I still prefer the original Henson puppet, and don’t even get me started on Jar Jar.
