Movie: King Kong (2005)

Peter Jackson's audacious and emotionally potent 2005 King Kong remake isn't without its fair share of masterful CGI and dazzling action. Not to mention, Andy Serkis' stop-motion creation of the mighty Kong is awe-inspiring in and of itself. But when Jackson's lofty ambition gets the best of him, King Kong suffers cruelly.

Holding little back, Jackson attempts to stage a massive dinosaur stampede during which the film's human characters are running downhill with the beasts. Aside from the absurd fact that none of the explorers get crushed, the likes of Jack Black and Adrien Brody are so obviously running in front of a green screen that you're practically waiting for the action behind them to rapidly alternate a la Wayne's World's traveling postcards sequence.
