I recently picked up King Kong, the Widescreen 2 Disc Set ... The movie itself is very good ... but I am quite dissapointed with the transfer ... Watching it on my LCD Laptop screen, it's so obvious that the transfer was rushed ... you can see changes in the film texture almost every-other frame ... and the CGI scenes just look really cheap ... Definately expect a Superbit version or a 2-Disc re-release ... I have yet to see a transfer as immaculate as The Lion King or Ali ... just great ..
Does anyone think the bad transfer has anything to do with the lenghth of the movie? (at about 3 hrs.)
Well its still playing hear right now via the Lucasfilm THX sound system, the image is very robust on the region 2 DVD, as to is the Six-Track Dolby Stereo Digital Surround-EX soundtrack, and if you have installed the latest part of the sound chain to your home cinemas, (SWOHS).
Sonic Whole Overhead Sound, this has huge impact on the films presentation, (SWONS) is very easy to install.
As for LCD screens, there a waste of money, there colour never looks the same nor does the brightness, if I won an LCD in a competition, I would sale it, without hesitation.
So there is nothing wrong with (KING KONG) image 10/10 sound 10/10
