King Kong (1933) at Costco $10.99

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
While the PQ isn't a significant resolution/detail improvement over the Two-Disc Collector's Edition DVD, what is noticeable is a reduction in contrast (probably good) and a cleaning up of the film; many of the spots and lines that were on the DVD are now gone. I guess it's possible that the clean-up process reduced the final sharpness a bit, which would explain why it's not dramatically better than the DVD, though you can see the improvements at:

It looks maybe 2-3x as sharp in some scenes, but certainly not 6x. And the grain is definitely apparent, at times distracting.

But for $10.99 it's definitely worth the upgrade, including having all the Special Features on the same disc.

^ I saw your post a few weeks ago but did not get a chance to visit Costco until this past weekend. They had the King Kong/book blu-ray package in stock so I picked it up. Since I only have King Kong on VHS tape this should be a worthwhile upgrade for me.

It seems like a nice package and I'm looking forward to watching it very soon. It's such a classic film, that I always enjoy watching, so it will be good to own it on the BD format.

Anyhow, thanks alot for posting about the Costco deal.

I want this on BD badly! smile.gif Maybe I can get someone to pricematch this, since I'm not a Costco member.
