About this deal

Entertainment Magpie Limited t/a Music Magpie is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority FRN 775278. The Post Production Diaries are great fun and are far more comprehensive than the meagre offerings that most releases supply, and even if the New York historical lecture seems a little out of place, then the Skull Island mini-doc more than makes up for it.

Expanding on the original story of the blonde beauty and the beast who falls for her, Jackson creates a movie spectacle that matches his Lord of the Rings films and even at times evokes their fantasy world while celebrating the glory of '30s Hollywood. When three drunks abuse Joe in his cage, the ape goes on a rampage, leading to one of the most dynamic stop-motion sequences in film history, and ultimately to a climax that would be unswallowably melodramatic were it not for the conviction and skill with which it is put together. La trama segue l'avventura di un gruppo di esploratori e una giovane attrice che si dirigono verso un'isola sconosciuta e pericolosa, dove incontrano il leggendario gorilla gigante, King Kong. mins, slim-line Pete informs us what we will find on this disc and how to navigate our way through the Post Production Diaries.

If you’re looking to immerse yourself in one of the greatest Monsterverse franchise, then look no further. With no commentary track from a man that loves to chat about his films, it seems obvious that another edition will be swinging its way to us before too long. But, as it stands, these diaries are very extensive and entertaining and, in a great many ways, form the perfect Making Of, in that you see exactly how things were done, meet all the unsung heroes and have almost everything explained to you along the way.

Some of the technologies we use are necessary for critical functions like security and site integrity, account authentication, security and privacy preferences, internal site usage and maintenance data, and to make the site work correctly for browsing and transactions. In typical Jackson style, the director rallies his team to recreate the sequence even as they’re working on the new Kong (joking that they’re “finishing” the original while filming the remake), using modern techniques to make it look, sound and feel as it might have back in 1933. Hubiera estado mejor poner en el menú todas esas escenas sin tener que ir a la película para acceder a ellas.Ray Harryhausen and Mighty Joe Young is essentially a continuation of his technical discussion with the Chiodos, here illustrated with the help of an original Joe armature. For fans of the franchise, we have all the classics to dive into on Blu-ray and DVD format, capturing every moment in Kong’s extensive on-screen career. But no, Kong goes on too long; particularly in this Extended Edition, which sees a disgruntled triceratops and a giant piranha push us well past the three-hour threshold.

Our hairy friend has faced many memorable battles over the years, facing the Skull Crawler from 2017’s King Kong: Skull Island and the T-Rex from 2005’s King Kong. It's an uncomplicated feeling they share; in fact, the whole movie is uncomplicated - but it's also profound and sad. Without any digital defects to mar its incredibly vibrant picture, the transfer holds the spectacle with amazing clarity and a tremendous depth of field that truly pitches you deep into the jungles of Skull Island. Each segment lasts a few minutes, packs in plenty of facts and behind the scenes secrets in a warts-and-all, fly-on-the-wall style that is quite endearing.These run for something like 160 mins and you can access them via Post Production Diaries By Date, Post Production Diaries By Department, or simply with a Play All option. And, more than any of that, it is a movie with a real beating heart, and that heart lies in the scenes shared by Darrow and Kong. The sequence is presented separately from the film, and the faces of the “sailors” who fall to their doom in the pit are recognizable from the documentary (which makes it even more fun), but this is an absolutely loving and thrilling “what if? Check out the attention to detail that has to be adhered to with regards to continuity - hair, costume, makeup - and balance that with the rather loose-seeming approach of then mocking up the sets that were featured in Principal Photography quickly just on a soundstage.
