    More packaging posts! They look cool and are more of an incentive to buy.

    Cover art is very nice but why is godzilla 2000 on the pop up and not the featured film version?

      I'm far from an expert and this leapt out at me. Not so great with the QC.

      Yes, you are right! The pop-up godzilla is not of the original Godzilla, but of Heisei-Godzilla. I am a Godzilla fan in Japan, and very dissapointed. It's like using Daniel Craig's picture for Dr. NO's DVD!

      I would give the prize to Mishima, but this one's right up there with it.

    Yeah, I'd like to also request that you guys do these for each release. It's definitely fun to look at and, like Justin said, an incentive to buy.

    Looks good for the kind of film but the regular Blu-Ray cases are perfect.

    The movie still has a lot of scratches in it but my guess is that the original film was in such bad shape that it was impossible to get rid of all the imperfections. I do, however, feel that Criterion has remastered it better than anyone else could. On the Raymond Burr version, you can clearly see that the Burr footage came from a different source than the Godzilla parts because all the Burr clips are bright and much more clear than the Godzilla parts.

      I often love to see distress on the print as long as the contrast, detail, etc. is good - it somehow makes it more like you're watching something out of the distant past through a magic mirror. It seems more authentic I guess.
