Much like the movie itself, the abundance of extra features on the Deluxe Extended Version of Peter Jackson's King Kong mix dazzling skill (the very in-depth "making of" documentary reveals the staggering amount of work that went into animating Kong) and woeful bloat (do we need to know this much about the friends who made cameos as biplane pilots?). As usual, there are mildly interesting but expendable deleted scenes, goof-ups and hijinks (some charming, some cloying), trailers, and outright advertisements (a plug for fans to buy collectible models--annoying until you learn from the doc how much obsessive labor the designers put into these things). But the most intriguing material provides a good long look into the filmmakers' creative processes, both technical (among other things, "pre-viz" animation shows how in some cases the action sequences were conceived before the script) and human (endearing glimpses of Jackson's stop-motion attempt to recreate Kong when he was 12 years old). Jackson and his engaging design team (who are much more interesting to listen to than the actors) clearly revere the original film, and frequent excerpts from it reveal why--but also demonstrate this movie's greatest weakness: "More realistic" doesn't equal "more evocative." --Bret Fetzer
Well, the film takes much too long to get going, and it doesn't really start to move until Skull Island.
This movie has it all- great story with drama and emotion, wonderful special effects and some great acting by Naomi Watts.
Dinosaur fight scenes go on forever (and why did Jackson think three T-Rexes would be better than one???
Naomi Watts has some kind of spark in her acting that basically makes the moviePublished 5 days ago by William Heidelberg
Adorable? Yeah. I suppose it touches the tween in me somewhere. Especially Naomi marching away from Kong, then running back between his legs from Rex. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Z
A vast improvement on that sorry attempt starring Jeff Bridges. Jack Black is a true a hole in this one. Overall a good flick to watch more than once.Published 11 days ago by Michael

The BR is great since it includes both versions of the movie and the audio and video quality is EXCELLENT.
HOWEVER, as for extras it only includes a commentary track by Jackson and writer Phillipa Boyens (spelling?) which was pretty cool (I heard it last night) but NONE of the documentary... Read More

|Jackson isn't double dipping here people.||
Overall the point is all the film companies are screwing everyone with these multiple releases.. the only way to get the best release is to refuse the purchase of any new DVD release for 6 months to a year after release until the "final" release is out..
every re-release is a total... Read More
