Readers, I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon devouring the forthcoming release from Kino Lorber: the 1965 SciFi/Fantasy Village Of The Giants. It's an incredible 4K restoration of an admittedly not-all-that-incredible film, but in all honesty I was mildly fascinated with it. It could be that I've never quite seen this version of the picture: the restoration work was incredible. Like so many who follow older films, I've seen this one on television over the years, and it's always been grainy and blurry in spots. I was so impressed with the quality of the rework that I ended up doing a fair number of screencaps from it and decided to share them for posterity's sake with their own page on SciFiHistory.Net. I figure fans of it might eventually be more interested in picking up the Blu-ray if they get a better taste of what to anticipate.
Well, my screencaps are located right here.
Mind you, I don't do like some of the really devoted Science Fiction enthusiasts do and sit for hours just trying to get the absolute perfect scene for preservation. I give it a once-over and hope I've captured enough quality to get the job done. Just do take a gander: it's a very, very, very impressive restoration.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
