    seen this bad boy at the cinema and my R1 disc arrived and i think i noticed something i didnt see before

    but i may be quite wrong

    Okay when kong slips off the montain with Miss watts he lands in a wee field at the bottom and faces upto a nice dinosaur (t-rex or allosaurus)

    then he grabs its jaw, now in the R1 dvd as he has a hold of its jaw he then goes and bites the dinosaurs tongue and rips it from its mouth and spits it on the ground

    later when he snaps the jaw of said dinosaur he punches and crushes the top part of its skull, before playing with the dead creature

    i cant remember either of those in the Cinema - but maybe i just missed them

    What is the running time of the R1 DVD because the cinema released clocks in at 187m 20s and was passed with no cuts made.

    I must have missed that bit then... i remember the latter but don't remember the tongue part.

    I'm waiting for the special extended edition's release before i buy so will have a bit of a wait to see it again.

    Aparently the 40 extra minutes is just one scene where the guys are trying to find a way to get Kong on the boat.:rotfl:

    no mention of an extended version of kong though (phew :smashin: ) just the deleted scenes and indepth extras like LOTR had. I wouldn't put it past Universal to want to extend it whether PJ wanted to or not, just like they did with Gladiator.
    I'll stick with the 2 disc one myself. Think I've had my fill of dvds with 7 hours of extras
