King Kong Magic

Postby Todd Karr » December 25th, 2005, 4:16 pm

Watch the first few scenes of King Kong closely and you'll spot a few magic posters. The movie's great, and magician-actor Adrien Brody is superb.

Hi Todd,

I noticed the posters too! I think it was Kellar and Thurston?

I had no idea he was a Brody was a magician.

All the best,

Nathan

Thought the movie was good but a trifle too long. I'd given up caring long before Kong bit it at the end. Also my wife and I though Ann became the "Poster Child" for the Helsinki Syndrome far too quickly.
I want to know if she could actually juggle or were the rocks cgi'd in?

Hi Payne:

Thought you might find this of interest (although I haven't checked into the research):

From the website
http://babylon5.cybersite.com.au/lurk/guide/074.html

The psychological phenomenon of hostages sympathizing with their captors is the Stockholm syndrome, not the Helsinki syndrome as stated in the episode. Some readers have commented that both names are correct, but that appears to not be the case according to psychological literature. For example, "Stockholm syndrome" appears 30 times in the journals of the American Psychological Association from 1887 to 1999, but "Helsinki syndrome" isn't mentioned even once.

The Helsinki Syndrome is accurate as it applies only when your captors are Movie Extra's or CGI effects.

I noticed the posters and I liked the movie. Cried in the end. So sad. I wrote about it on my blog.
