I just finished watching this edit. That was extremely well done and very appropriate for the genre. I wouldn't want to see this type of transfer for many modern films, but it really works for Kong. As for my subjective score:

Video 9.5/10 (10+ for the black & white transfer + vintage feel, 9 for a few extremely minor compression blocks in the video)

Audio 9/10 (well done, loud enough, and good separation)

Presentation 8/10 (extremely well done - nice menu and trailer, it would normally get a 10/10 in my book, but Jorge and CBB set the bar so darn high in this category)

Packaging 7/10 (nice cover by Boon, but could use disc artwork)

Overall score (weighting Audio + Video = 75%, Presentation + Packaging = 25%):

8.81 - A superb job!

Glad you liked the edit. All the praise for the DVD should be directed to boon. I just did the re-edit and the trailer and encoded them to H.264. Boon converted it to MPEG2, created DVD menus, designed the coverart, authored the DVD, etc.

I haven't seen the DVD (no rapidshare) but sounds like he did a great job. :grin:
