Why did you remove my edits on the GvG and GvMG gallery pages?
Topic on User talk:The H-Man
In short, I didn't think they were necessary because they weren't upgrades to the images already on the site.
Both came from SpaceHunterM's video; in their video, the original source of the Godzilla vs. The Cosmic Monster title card was a frame from an eBay auction for the film's trailer. It's exactly the same image we already have on the Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla/Gallery page, except SHM added some artificial filters to make the still image look like moving film. The one you uploaded, because of the digital processing, is a lower quality and less authentic version of the same image presently in the gallery.
The source of the Godzilla on Monster Island title in SpaceHunterM's video is a 1994 Sci-Fi Channel broadcast, preserved on VHS, although SHM stretched it to match the widescreen footage of Godzilla firing his ray, which itself is actually video from a different copy and different version of the movie. As with Cosmic Monster, it's the same source of the image in the Godzilla vs. Gigan/Gallery gallery, only in this case, the Sci-Fi Channel footage was modified to bring it back to its approximate theatrically-projected dimensions. In my opinion, there's room on the site someday for the Godzilla on Monster Island title in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio, but I think it should come from a frame from a 35mm print. At the very least, using a modification of what we already have is unnecessary. The 4:3 image capture stays because it's more authentic to its source (it's the native aspect ratio of the original Sci-Fi Channel broadcast).
I'm not site staff so I don't have a say in what can or should go around here, but this was my reasoning for undoing those edits.
Thanks for clearing that up. I completely understand! I still think we should have a non pink tinted version of the Cosmic Monster title though. It was red as shown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlhaeFMZjZE
It's only pink because the color has faded from the film (color film typically turns red or pink from fading). Non-faded prints would have much more vibrant color. Even in that video the film is severely faded.
I assume you're the same UltraGoji that's been asking me questions about these movies on YouTube. Here are some Godzilla VHS resources:
Oh. I want to find 35mm copys of the Cinema Shares Trilogy. The Terror of Godzilla would be cool too! Also yes, I am the same UltraGoji on YouTube. Thank you, and sorry for the trouble.
