I know you're being sarcastic, but for preservation sake this kind of stuff matters. I know casual viewers don't really care, but I mean this is basically as far as we know probably the best we will ever get out of Toho...(see the whole terminator 2 bluray/lotr DNR fiasco)

After further investigation of my previous post, the "tv version" I obtained of invasion seemed to be some form of AI upscaling 4K thus added detail where it really never was. I checked the actual original source and it does lineup with the disc, so I guess thats actually how Invasion looks. edited post for clarity

im happy to take the L on this one. It felt odd that there were some spots with some details clearly that were never there. Talked with someone who knows of the source and alas, it was AI, which by the way, did an incredible job it looked incredibly close to the bluray

How do you mean? Because of the DNR fiasco? There's an interesting story behind that that has nothing to do with Cameron.

No? It's just another user asking for links to the 4K restorations that were discussed earlier.

Same here! Looking forward to watching all 7 of them!

I wish Toho would announce Godzilla 1984 & Megalon soon for 2024!

Anyone know if Godzilla vs Gigan (1972) was 4K restored as of yet?
