The declined submission:


Addressing the Brazil release date correction from 1984 to 1985

Alternate Title Edit
Before:
Godzilla 1985 (1984)      (Brazil)      (imdb display title)
After:
Godzilla 1985 (1985)      (Brazil)      (imdb display title)
Your Comment “(1984) is incorrect. Earliest possible release is 1985

Reason:
Duplicate

We were unable to approve this contribution.Your contribution appears to be a duplicate of existing data listed on IMDb.

Duplicate of what???? That's baffling.


This titles earliest release was in 1985 as can be seen below in this screen grab.

So a 1984 release is making reference to a similar but completely different title.
The Return of Godzilla (1984)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9015178/?ref_=nv_sr_3?ref_=nv_sr_3
We are concentrating here to correct the confusion of the inclusion of data (AKA's) from the 1984's title being in the 1985's title data and remove all the references that incorrectly point to another title. The (1984) version.

The rest of the submission after the Brazil release correction is the incorrect referencing to the completely different "The Return of Godzilla (1984)"

The reasons were pretty much an "Unable to verify" on all.

The verification was submitted with every request for removal.

The other title in your own database. "The Return of Godzilla (1984)"
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9015178/?ref_=nv_sr_3?ref_=nv_sr_3

I'm not sure if the editor that reviewed this understood that those requests were to remove AKA's that made reference to a completely different title. They both have a reference as Gojira. "Godzilla 1985 (1985)" has as it's original title "Gojira" . The Return of Godzilla (1984) is also referred to in Japan as "Gojira", an official AKA!

"The Return of Godzilla (1984)"
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9015178/?ref_=nv_sr_3?ref_=nv_sr_3
and "Godzilla 1985 (1985)"
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087344/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1
are two different titles in the database.
They have 2 different main languages,
2 cast variations, and
2 different run times.
88 vs. 103Min.

The AKA references that are now currently in place do need to be corrected.
That is IMDb's mission. To be the most reliable source........................

Thank you.

And I did notice that it says "Needs Authentication
That information is on this topic.
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/mod-needs-to-approve-changes

Also within that topic was the submissions to remove the incorrect poster images which were approved, and the running time change to 88 minutes which was approved also.
If you can approve and understand those changes then these should also make sense.
Thanks again.

Hi Ed -

I can see that the Alternate title for Brazil is now displaying "Godzilla 1985": https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087344/releaseinfo?ref_=tt_ql_dt_2

Concerning the other rejections, I have now removed the incorrect Alternate Titles from "Godzilla 1985", and these changes should be live on the site shortly.
