On old CW photos, do you feel colorizing them enhances them, or makes them feel tampered with??

The Uncanny Valley effect is closing in on colorizing.

Remember years ago when Ted Turner decided he was going to colorize classic B&W films, just because he could? Trouble was, the carefully determined B&W camera settings they were shot with just could not be accounted for by the colorization process. The colors were simultaneously garish and muddied and thoroughly unpleasant to watch. I know it was done at least with "Gunga Din" and "It's a Wonderful Life", and I couldn't sit through either of them.
The same thing applies here. The original B&W plates are just that superior in appearance to the phony-looking color knock-offs.
I cannot comprehend how these things were supposed to "Change How You Feel About The American Civil War". I must be immune.
