    King Kong, not wrong

    King Kongs blu debut is an older encode that still look marvelous. Included are a lot of special features, but keep in mind they are disproportionately Peter Jackson heavy, but still some great history. A franchise this significant should have a bigger, more professional package but for the price we can forgive the big hairy lug.

    King Kong is one of those great classic old films that will always have a lot of charm. Sure, it's kitschy and corny and the acting can be wooden, but it holds a special place in one's heart. the best part about it is the great Willis O'Brien special effects. Remarkable at the time, they still hold up.

    A great old classic. of course can't stand up to modern special effects, but has a special charm. Importantly, the blu-ray copy does have significant improvements of the old grainy worn version older folks had to put up with in the past.

    The story holds up. There are some cool extras on here but the reason this doesn't get 5 stars is because unlike the DVD version the bluray does not have the movie "son of kong"

    The old film has been cleaned up to 720p I believe, not sure if it's 1080 or not. Great old film if you like the original that started it all.

    The original is still the best version of the King Kong stories. While the effects are very outdated - it is still the King.
