Don't let anyone tell you the Double Feature is dead. My daughter and I enjoyed (if that's the right word) three hours of cinematic entertainment the other weekend, namely the paired destined-to-be-classics: Konga and Master of the World. Now, the latter is a Vincent Price vehicle, so we expected that one to be decent, but what could we make of Konga, billed as the best giant ape movie since King Kong? And in color, no less!

For those who say that my reviewes are too often negative, I will begin with the positive notes. The cinematography, the scoring, even the acting (for the most part), is "A" level. Also, there is an excellent scene in the middle depicting the family life of one of the minor characters. It is funny and earnest.

And...

and...

well...

Well, I'll let the movie speak for itself. I've secured a set of cineclips, and I took note of the film's immortal dialogue. You can tell me if it was worth my time:
