Godzilla Showa REMASTERED

An attempt to enhance the transfers for the Godzilla films, who many could argue is a bit lacking. Here are some sample stills from the encodes (H264 Bluray Compliant Streams) I have done so far:

Are you using the recent Criterion blu ray release as a master? What was lacking about them in your opinion and what did you do differently?

Here is an album with the original stills from the criterion release: https://ibb.co/album/cnXgRF

Criterion were supplied old 2008 transfers, with somewhat blurry and faded look, criterion managed to fix the contrast. They looked also rather brown. I did mostly color correction on these and slight sharpening. There were rumors criterion were searching for actual new sources for these films but Toho shot them down and again, supplied them with a decade old average transfers.

Dang that it is incredibly disappointing if that rumor is true. That would have been an actual reason for me to buy that collection. Nice little color correction though.

Impressive! The colors look great.

More importantly, someone needs to fix the awful packaging it comes in 😃

I just got the criterion set. While im glad to have it, it is very dissapointing.

2008 muddy transfers
many films still have the bad splice damage everytime there is an edit
no alternate cuts
the only english dubs are the horrible international ones

Its ok, thanks to redmenace and some of the great fan edits out there, but its too bad Toho gave criterion such mediocre sources.
