Proposition for new categories: Godzilla Films, Gamera Films, King Kong Films, Other Toho Films, Other Daiei Films, Other Japanese Films, Miscellaneous.--Astounding Beyond Belief (talk) 03:55, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

@Les: I added them here, because I wanted create redirects to the page Masahiko Katto. --Allosaurus (talk) 19:04, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

It seems largely unnecessary, especially because the page is not covering the films in-depth. A slew of redirects to the same page that simply mention the movies' titles is just taking up space. Les (main | talk) 19:20, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
I know, but there aren't better solutions. At least there are galleries and several sentences about these films. --Allosaurus (talk) 19:24, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
There are no sentences, it's just the filmography. The 'better solution' is not clogging up this template with films we aren't going to cover. Les (main | talk) 19:25, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
Of course you can delete these redirects, I just wanted to help. --Allosaurus (talk) 19:28, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
You're fine. I don't mind the redirects existing, they just don't need to be in this template. Les (main | talk) 19:28, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
👍. I understood. --Allosaurus (talk) 19:31, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

Is there a reason to group the TriStar and Monsterverse films under one American category? They're utterly unrelated beyond both being American made, and have an almost 20 year gap between them, so they don't slot in nicely with the category layout if grouped together. Additionally, it's easier for people to navigate and find the films they're looking for if they're clearly distinct categories. ~Shevadeen

Hi! From an organizational perspective, I really don't see much advantage in having a slot with only one movie in it. If it was a whole separate film series, sure, but I don't think it being with the Monsterverse movies is significantly worse for navigation. There is also the fact that grouping them together as American/Hollywood movies is what Toho does, such as on the Singular Point website and Godzilla.com. --Les (main | talk) 23:54, 21 February 2024 (UTC)
Makes sense, thanks for taking the time to explain! And apologies for changing multiple templates before checking! ~Shevadeen
