    Absolutely NOT. While Son Of Kong is no King Kong, it is very enjoyable. And Mighty Joe Young is an excellent film and nearly as good as King Kong itself imo.[​IMG]

    Oh there is no question this November 22 is going to be a Tuesday my Amex will not soon forget - King Kong, The Last Days of Pompeii, the Polar Express, the Streisand TV specials box set plus several more.

    But King Kong is the champ.

    While "King Kong" is a great film, I enjoy watching "Mighty Joe Young" more. I always felt that "Mighty Joe Young" was underrated as a film.

    I've submitted it to the wife as a birthday/Christmas wishlist item, so I won't see mine until about Dec. 23.

    "Run"? I don't think so. I've been waiting 5 years. I'll just saunter in, thanks. [​IMG]

    Seriously, it will be nice to finally have this film, it's been a long time since I've seen it.

    Just have to decide which set I want. The comments about the followup films sound favourable.

    Mmm. I see $25.99 now on Amazon, both for the 'Collector's Edition (the tin) and the 'Collection' (King, Son and Joe).

    The price of the 'Collection' is less than King Kong and Mighty Joe together, so unless you want the tin: if you buy the 'Collection' you get Son of Kong for free and even money back, compared to only King Kong plus Mighty Joe Young bought separately.

    "Unfortunately" [​IMG], I wanted the tin, so I had to order Joe separately and decided to drop his Son.

    To answer a question higher up, the censored scenes are no longer in a nasty contrast that makes them stick out; they blend right back into the movie seamlessly, so that if you don't know what they are, you'll never notice.

    The censored scenes now blend in because they are of the same generation as the rest of the picture element.

    RAH, let me also extend a warm thanks for all that you do for HTF. Your patience with all of us when we argue, jump to conclusions, and lack-the-facts is exceptional and your continued participation here has really raised-the-bar in our discourse and helped to educate us all. And of course, your enthusiasm for beautifully restored classics always creates a wave of excitement for that next-great-release which is hard to beat.

    I second every word of that David. Well said!

    I've been in high anticipation mode ever since this title was originally rumored for release last year. Reading the interview over on thedigitalbits.com and now RAH's post here I have the upmost confidence Warner has done their absolute best with this title. Can't wait!

    Man, 1 more week and I don't think I can wait that long. I cannot wait for this set, especially with the glowing praise given to it by Mr. Harris.

    I refuse to buy this set until we get some input from that Harns guy who worked on "Lawrence of Arabia".
