Downloaded the mp4 versions of 1.0 and watched a few bits. Great work. I noticed a little wobble in the subtitle masking, but barely noticeable and better than what I could do. Also, great job upscaling the SD footage. It’s not a perfect match to the HD footage from Kraken’s Blu-Ray, but certainly better than what I was expecting. Again, great work.
I didn’t realize the Monsters HD copy had different music from the theatrical copy. I don’t care in any case, I just don’t understand why they just replace the Def-Con music for release. Does the VHS copy have Japanese music or is that from the Monsters HD only?
In any case, thanks for helping me find this version. First Godzilla film I ever saw and I wanted to give it another chance despite me remembering I wasn’t too big a fan. I’m rewatching because I like the Japanese cut and I just want to see what’s different; been a LONG while I saw this version. Also, I was surprisingly pleased by the Raymond Burr version of the 1950’s Godzilla and I wanted to see Steve Martin again… er, not THAT Steve martin 😄
