I saw the movie twice. I have seen the demo disc for the Kong trailer, the movie blows it away. The level of detail, the sheer resolution of the movie ( especially on Skull Island) is microscopic fineness. The movie starts out a little colorless, once the ship crashes on skull island it is like a new colorful version of Kong. the colors are a rich palatte, rich oranges for the fires, flesh tones bang on, skin texture that puts MI3 to shame. It will make you speechless. There is a scene in the movie when all the "vegetarian " dinosaurs are feeding on shrub, and these carnivorous rexes start attaching, and there is a chase scene where they all rush to a cliff to avoid being eaten, and several of crew avoid being crushed to death, this is the most amazing thing i have ever seen in my life in hd. The dinosaurs skin tones every nuance, wrinkle is exhibited. There are no artificacts, the picture is fluid, every portion of the movie is filled with rich detail and jumps out at you. There is a finess and contrast , richness in color that captures you in. The exellence of VC-1 shows, with its sharpness, contrast, resoluteness and rich filmy textures.
The scene with the natives blows the demo disc KOng scene. When the child reaches out with his hand, and then bites the dirctor after being offered chocolate, then the whole tribe appears, look at the flesh tones, and pores on the skins of all the natives, it is 1080p ish that is all i can say, you forget you are looking at a movie, it is real life, It is like looking at digital pictures on a camera so sharp, the natives every blemish on skin, flesh tones, detail of hair eyes is apparent.
KOng grabs you with its visual splendour like no other movie i have seen. Forget Charlie choclate factory, Riddick , MI3 this is AMAZING, SPECTACULAR , MOMENTOUS, what an amazing historic transfer.
My parents , friends , were speechless. I watched the movie a second time, i cant stop, this is phenonomenal.
