From a technical standpoint, the presentation here is a definite improvement over the online QuickTime features that you may have been viewing on your computer (or perhaps you missed some of them). The video logs have been transferred to an anamorphic widescreen image framed at 1.78:1. The picture quality outshines whatever you may have seen online yet it can't faithfully be touted as representative of the digital medium's full capability. The overall quality is a bit soft and there are several instances of compression artifacting. It's of no terrific consequence, though, as the just-less-than-polished appearance is definitely viewable and offers an added level of detail that could not be seen in the online presentations. The audio is presented in a well-mixed Dolby Digital 2.0 track where you'll be able to hear all the various chatter and background noise that you likely missed on the Internet. Again, for content of this sort, it would be unreasonable to expect a pristine presentation.

All told, exploring this package might be very much like finding an ancient canister that's been lost in time, one that contains the thoughts, experiences, and emotions of an adventurer who determined his fantastic story would be chronicled for the ages. King Kong—Peter Jackson's Production Diaries has perhaps one of the most imaginative and exciting DVD package designs, made all the more alluring as it becomes available the day before the feature film is released in theaters.
