The level of grain was just right and the picture was crystal clear; the sound too was largely blemish free! What a stonking film this is. My adrenaline is still pumping as I write! The horror scenes are still surprisingly strong, and coupled with the wonderfully animated creatures, were the main reasons I loved the film so much as a youngster.
It needs to be seen on a huge screen. My 28" tele didn't do it justice.

He should have cut his film by 2 hours and got MTV to do the soundtrack in that case.

So Jackson felt bored to tears watching Kong as a 9 year old?

I could've done with watching it on a bigger tv as well...

Well, I knew it'd happen eventually - I've succumbed to the tropical malady that is 'Kong tin fever'. I've ordered the upcoming release of the Kong Collection with Kong tin, and now I'm off to flog my existing, oh-so-ordinary (amarays? pah!) Kong Collection to make room for it. Am I crazy? More hassle and (probably) more expense for the same films I've already got? Sod it. Must ... have ... Kong tin.
I bet the damn thing'll arrive with a dent in it now, just to prove a point.

Got my EzyDVD tin yesterday. Sadly it is just that: a tin. None of the goodies that are in the R1 tin accompany it, although the contents of the DVDs themselves are fine...

There's been much discussion of that lost spider pit sequence in this thread - Jeff Krispow has some pics of the original spider model which he's posted over at the HTF in this thread; fascinating stuff.
