Prepare for a kaiju DVD experience beyond your expectations of what we have usually received. Criterion has a knack for actually making their DVDs better than Toho's, for example, compare Toho's DVD of Seven Samurai vs. Their 3 disc set:http://tohokingdom.com/web_pages/dvd/re ... i_toho.htm
(IDK about the pic comparison on the R2 DVD review, pretty sure the review was written before the deluxe Criterion set)
Enhanced picture quality vs. the classic media DVD? That would be cool.
With Criterion, there could not only a possible compilation of special features from many sources (Japanese blu-ray, Classic Media's DVD set or the BFI DVD, or even the 40th Anniversary Laserdisc Box Set) but possible creation of new special features with interviews with surviving members of the production and such. Of course, this is all speculation, but Criterion is top of the line so it would be cool if they made a deluxe DVD set. They have been wanting to release this since the 1990's (so I've heard) so I have some expectations for this.
I just hope the case artwork is better than this:
I guess now would be a good time to resurrect that "dream kaiju DVD" topic from a while back.
