Both are remade giant monster movies, by the way.
Godzilla is the last great score by David Arnold, in my opinion, and the worst one, compare to ID4, Stargate and Tomorrow Never Dies.
King Kong wrote in only 3 weeks. But it is one of the very best of James Newton Howard. Both the action and romantic themes are perfect. I still remember that when King Kong dies, the whole cinema was silence. The only thing you can hear was the female vocal of the score.
Well, I think the film and the script must respond for this as well. At least the audience would feel really sad when King Kong dies. But when Godzilla dies, I think, "OK, finally! This terrible film end!" No matter how great the score was, it can't helps the film or make me few sad for Godzilla's death.
Anyway, let's just back to the scores themselves......
