-Trailers: The trailers for Gojira and Godzilla are both here and the results are uneven. Godzilla’s trailer looks to be in far better shape and is easier on the eyes brightness wise than Gojira.But, they're the best there is and the fact that they even exist at all is nothing short of a miracle due to how trailers were thrown away after they outlived their usefulness.
-Commentaries: While David Kalat is a fountain of information, I personally like it when the commentator actually pays attention to what going on on screen. Instances of this are few and far between. That’s not to say that what Kalat has to say isn’t interesting; it just that it has nothing to do what’s on screen which is offputting. I do admire his enthusiasm and love of his subject however. If you have the Classic Media version of Gojira, put on that commentary and listen to it while you watch the film would be my advice if you want to learn more about the film as you watch it.
-Interviews: The interviews are a great highlight. New interviews with Akira Takarada and Haruo Nakajima are interesting as always. The same goes for the interview about the photographic effects with Yoshio Irie and Eizo Kaimai which runs for a good 30 minutes. At about 2 and a half minutes in, some lighting problems occurred while filming the interview. This is not your TV/monitor. It’s fairly brief and gets fixed. Another highlight is the Akira Ifukube interview which clocks in at 50 minutes!
-Featurettes: The featurettes on the disk include “The Unluckiest Dragon”, a very interesting featurette about the fishing boat the “Diago Fukuryu Maru”’s history and impact on the film, and another featurette about the photographic effects that were used in the making of Godzilla. There’s a wealth of content on this disk totaling 7 ½ hours of content!
-Cover artwork: The box cover artwork done by artist Bill Sienkiewicz is…ok. It’ll do what it's supposed to do which is be eye catching on the store shelf. The pose for Godzilla is interesting even though the tail looks likes it’s separate from the body. The colors are a mix of white, brown, and yellow and it's not the most attractive color scheme. I personally feel that there are artists more suitable like Bob Eggleton or Matt Frank to design a cover for Godzilla.
-Packaging: Godzilla is packaged in a cardboard case with a foldout inlay. It’s an interesting design and confusing at the same time. The Godzilla depicted in the artwork on the back of the inlay, the popup design, and on the disk itself is not the version of Godzilla in which this release celebrates-it’s from a film that was made almost 50 years later: Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (2002). It’s a mysterious choice and one that has angered and confused many fans. The package also includes a booklet with info on the transfer process and has an essay on the film written by critic J.Hoberman. Overall though, it’s what’s on the disk that matters. It just doesn’t make it the “perfect package”.
