King Kong T-HOPE Extended Edition
Faneditor T-HOPE took the scene and edited it back into the movie, so fans of the original King Kong could enjoy an extended version.

I am an extended edition buff and have a big collection of original ones and all the fanedits from here.
Many extended editions do not add anything to the movie, just add more useless scenes. I will rate the ones here.
Rating criteria: image quality, sound quality, 3x improvement, overall.
Image Quality: 10 of 10
Sound Quality: 10 of 10
Improvement: 9 of 10

Peter Jackson recreating the Lost Spider Pit scene is -to me- his best contribution to the legacy of King Kong. I didn’t care for his version of the film at all, but hats off to him and his team for bringing a piece of film history back to life.
It was a brilliant move for T-Hope to actually put it back in its rightful place within the movie. By doing so, he has preserved a bit of history and allowed a modern audience a fascinating look into the past. It’s a very simple edit, but an important one.
This is an entertaining and historic extended edition of a classic movie. I highly recommend it to all.
Simple but functional DVD menu. On the minus side: the music is quite loud on the main menu and seems too modern for the movie. Plus side: Includes some interesting photos and information about the Spider Pit scene as well.
