- Much Needed Remastered Version- May 16, 2021
I tried watching this movie on hbo max and the image quality was so bad I had to turn it off. Luckily shout factory rescanned the film and released this blu ray for fans of kong. It looks great for a 1976 movie. On a 4K tv, you may have to turn on some noise reduction or artificial enhancement, as the grain is still pretty heavy, but the picture quality and level of detail is excellent. King Kong is incredibly creepy and goofy in this movie, but the human characters really stand out. Jeff Bridges and Jessica Lange were perfect for this adaptation. The artwork on the case is really well done too. Has both tv and theatrical versions of the movie. Highly recommend.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Finally on blu ray.- June 2, 2021
This Kong is a particular favorite of mine. I have always preferred this one over all the other Kong films. It's what I grew up with, It's what I know from back in the day as a kid. This Kong is the bloodiest and has the most graphic death scene of them all. That roar, that classic iconic King Kong roar is one of the reasons I love this movie. The film has it's fans and detractors, but to me King Kong 76' has always been the go to for me. This blu ray transfer has a sharp picture. Best it's ever looked so far. It's the audio that shines. The 5.1 sound carries the movie well. The music and sound effects are remarkable for an old movie. You can feel the weight of Kong's stomping.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Twin Towers Kong- May 20, 2021
A movie that is strong on nostalgia. I followed all of the articles in magazines and any media coverage I could dig up. My father gree up in the era of the original, this was my chance to have King Kong in my youth (17 years old). Introducing Jessica Lange was a stroke of luck (so beautiful) that just made the film more memorable. This collector's edition brings all of that back. Such wonderful memories. Great to have the Twin Towers be prominent int the final act. I remember the exhilaration I felt as Long jumped from one to the other, a memorable moment. Excellent presentation. But this disc.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
