Eh, its worth it to me. I buy movies for the movie, not the special features, and it does include the peter jackson audio commentary, which is good enough for me.

Well, I buy movies when they are completed package, not a prelimary package........

I guess you will be buying the LOTR on bluray than...

ooooooooooookkkkkkkkk,

and yes I'll be buying the LOTR set, I don't like the extended cuts very much, they added junk scenes mostly IMO, the story is less cohesive and doesn't flow as well in the Xtended cuts.

Thats a totally different thing. Theatrical vs extended....which, in the case of king kong..it has both! But again, I dont really care about extras. I watch the movie and thats about it. I dont think I have watched a single extra on any of the over 300 BDs that I own. I still go to the theater and I dont leave saying, well, it was ok, but since there was no making of the movie on after it, dont go see it cause its not the "Complete package". I know its just a personal choice, but I dont really care how they made a movie, or anything like that, I want to be entertained for my 2 hours or so and thats it.

Yea, I feel what you're saying. Features are important to me as well, though personally I don't think I can wait for the evident double dip. I want this now since it finally has the extended cut and I do actually miss King Kong from my library since I ebayed the HD-DVD version a while ago.

The LOTR set for me, might be a different story though.

Maybe I'm just asleep here, but I'd *swear* that's what I paid for this at B/M Walmart a couple months ago.

Snagged this and Miami Vice for 30$ shipped total. Seems to me that all Universal catch up titles have received a nice increase in features and aq/pq.

Kong was a demo disk on HD DVD but the bluray sounds even better from what I hear thanks to the inclusion of a DTS-MA track. Now that I have a Sony STR DG-820, my receiver can transmit the LPCM sent to it via the PS3 thru 5.1.

Miami vice didn't get as much of an update but I am a huge Michael Mann fan and really did enjoy the score of MV so I snagged that as well to get free shipping.

Also got Casino on BR for my b-day yesterday, it sounded great too!
