Godzilla Blu-ray Criterion Edition Pt. 2

So far:
While you get both the Japanese and English versions you also get:
New print that corrected the Master Print with those scatches and cuts.
New commentaries from the Classic Media series. Those old commentaries are not on this disc.
New booklet which differs from the Classic Media veersion.

All this on one disc with new supplements discussing various parts of filmmaking,
this has a great filmmaking 101 that only Criterion can deliver adding new features that
the Classic Media doesn't have.
And to top it off it has a cute pop-up of GZ when you open the case. The one peeve is that
the booklet doesn't have a sleeve to hold so you have to keep it in the casing to hold it.

So is it worth for the double dipping. Yes this get 5 out of 5.
But still hold on the the Classic Media version for the old features and commentaries.
I wouldn't be surprise if down the road all these will be put together for the Ultimate collection.
