I'm watching this on movies4men right now


And it's the one of the worst cases (If not the worst case of colourizing I've ever seen, don't get me wrong I love black & white movies aswell as colour movies, but if they're going to colourize they should do it right instead of the shoddy job that I'm looking at, or don't colourize it and leave it in B&W.
I don't mean to spoil it for anyone but also has a green ocean.

It's on now and I didn't notice, I assumed it was a faded print....

Marlon, Claudia and Dimby the cats 1989-2005, 2007 and 2010.

POSSIBLE SPOILER-I thought the colour looked slightly odd when I watched it last night.Never seen this before and despite some very cheap special effects thoroughly enjoyed it; annoyingly though, my Movies4Men film guide did give away the rather unpleasant surprise they discover about the island-my fault for reading it I suppose.Good cast with a particularly enjoyable slimy,sleazy Attenborough,"old Empire" prim & proper Jean Simmonds(Tenko),gorgeous Pier Angeli(Telly`s totty in Battle of the Bulge)and recognised the young German scientist from "Secret Army".

Me too. I didn't realise it's colourised, but that makes sense. The hostess's lipstick is insane. Thought I'd eaten something wrong.

I'm watching it now but have reduced the colour to see it in black and white.

I've seen the original black and white version. It was colorised for the US, so it's odd that M4Men showed this version unless it is a US channel.

I also saw it on Movies4Men and thought it was a washed out print colour wise, commented it on it at the start. Enjoyed the film though would have preferred to see it as it is intended.
