Matthew Lamont Kongs out!

Yes! Finally I have seen Kong - Skull Island!  It is a great movie! It pays homage to the various films made over the years.  The RKO films, the Toho films and the Dino De Laurentiis films (specifically the 1976 remake).
Finally Kong has more screen time and the monsters in this movie are imaginative.  It was so good that I had my picture taken at the photo display at my local movie theater.  I Konged out in 2005 and I did it again in 2017.
Well, it is no Kongfrontation at Universal Studios Florida, I have photos me and my family at the photo booth where you are at Kong's hand and take a picture and you hear him roar as if he is trying to eat you up.  Apparently, they got destroyed and ended up in photo-collages (it is tough to be a monster movie buff in the 1990's).

Here are some pictures of some poster I found.  

As a Kong-fan, I enjoy this movie. If you didn't see this movie, then go watch it!  And if you saw it, well, then why aren't you watching it again?!  I am wildly excited about this movie and I enjoyed it and this was a box-office smash.  It is better than the 2014 version of Godzilla!  Better than Pixels!  Better than Looney Tunes Back in Action!  This movie is like Apocalypse Now meets Jurassic Park meets the 1976 King Kong remake.  This comes to show that monsters make money! Also, when you are watching it, stay tuned after the credits.   It will blow your mind.

Speaking of Kong, I am currently working on a commentary of Hail to the King - A King Named Kong and I am going to upload a nice film I made seven years before my senior thesis film.  From 2007, How King Kong met Godzilla - The Legend and The Legacy.  Stay tuned tomorrow.

OH MY GOSH! I HAVE BEEN SHOUTED OUT.

Yes, it looks like my documentary Hail to the King - A King named Kong, gets mentioned again.
This is fun.  I mean this is just great.  First I got recognition on the 200th episode of Badasses Boobs and Body Count and now by Jack Buchanan.  He gave me a thank you and a shout out in this video.
It is at the 2:24 mark.


Let me tell that Jack did a series of reviews on not only films like Jurassic Park, Superman, Waterworld and Space Jam (where do you think I got the idea for the ending for my vlog on The Powerpuff Girls 2016 reboot vlog on the episode "Fashion Forward").  He also reviews King Kong movies.  In fact recently he reviewed the King Kong movies that never got made so I guess this is where he reviewed the King Kong movies that never got made.  You can check it out on his YouTube page.  Make him your Facebook friend and tell him that Matthew B. Lamont (that's LA-mont not LAY-mont *giggles*) sent you here. 

Also, you can check out his own version of King Kong by at his YouTube page.  This film premiered in 2010 and took six years in the making and I have to say it is so good for an amateur film. 

Thank you so much Jack Buchanan.  I appreciate it.

Currently, I am working on the commentary to my senior thesis project.

The Dinosaur and the Missing Link (2005)

I am going to take you back.  Way back.  Back before there were animation programs like i-stop motion, Frame Theif, Dragon Frame and Stop Motion Pro.  Before I knew Final Cut Pro. There was something I learned on Discovery Channel's Mega Movie Magic about stop-motion animation.  Record for one frame, stop move it a bit.  Record for one second, stop, move it a little bit and so on.  The result was choppy and sluggish moments.  I was unaware about the EOS FAX Umatic Animation Controller so I sent it to Adobe Premiere and changed the speed of the movements and added in the voices.  This was The Dinosaur and the Missing Link (2005) a remake of the 1915 classic by Willis O'Brien. 
Yes, today is his birthday.  



Hey, this was my first animation.  Your first is not your best. 
Enjoy.
