King Kong: Special Collector's Edition ($30.98) Director-cowriter Peter Jackson's eye-popping remake of the 1933 mega-gorilla classic is pure movie magic. Best scene: when Kong and Naomi Watts slide on the ice in a pond in New York City's Central Park. Extras: The two-disc set regrettably lacks any audio commentary with Jackson or the cast. There is an amusing faux documentary on Skull Island; a solid real doc on 1930s Manhattan; and Jackson's video diaries, which exhaustively cover every aspect of postproduction from sound dubbing to Kong's Times Square premiere. (PG-13) Movie:
