    Criterion release #1000: Godzilla Showa era 15 film set on Blu-ray 10/29

    Save your pennies because in October, Criterion has something special for spine #1000, the fifteen Showa era Godzilla films (1954-1975). Looks like quite a set!

    If you can wait until November, Barnes and Nobel usually has an annual 50% off Criterion sale.

    $200 is steep, but all in one go? Very tempting. I just wish that they contained both versions of each film like the Classic Media versions. I understand the purpose of the Criterion Collection is to preserve culturally relevant films in their original formats, but if it's subtitled, it isn't really the original format either.

    Does this set include both the Japanese and English language versions of each film? For a few of the films the original Japanese versions are considerably different.

    It's like $12 a film. It's a super steal.

    Only for a few. Still worth the buy, imo.
