You may want to clarify with regards to the Lost Spider Pit Sequence. It's actually the recreation overseen by Peter Jackson from circa 2004 of the lost sequence, and not the real sequence itself. (If there is a Heaven, I hope its video store has uncut versions of 'King Kong,' 'Magnificent Ambersons' and 'Greed.')

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
we have very little reason to be interested in them.

nice review of this great classic.
so cool that this film is now on blu-ray.
I know bringing these 30's classics to blu-ray is expensive, but I really hope we get many more on the format.
I know "Mutiny..." is coming soon, and that should be spectacular, but there are many others that would look great on bd like "Gunga Din", "Swing Time", "The Public Enemy" and "The Philadelphia Story"
I really hope Warner is working on some of those also.
In fact, I'm kind of shocked that Warner hasn't put out one Astaire/Rogers film yet on blu-ray.
I would have thought by now one would have been out for sure.
Warner keeps me interested in blu-ray so I really pray they keep it up and don't abandon the format like some of the other studios seem to be doing as far as catalogs.

Maybe I just don't appreciate the "classics".... but really, without putting on your nostalgia glasses, the vast majority of so called classics kind of....stink.

as you watch more, you'll come to realize that you cannot directly compare the films of Classic Cinema to the ones of Modern. once you realize that, you'll be able to genuinely embrace the time period and truly love the Classics as much as the rest of us do.

Kong '33 is still quite a spectacle to this very day. I will proudly own this film. The making of doc is one of the most engrossing special features I've ever seen.
