Packaging / Design

This set comes packaged in a limited tin box replicated from a tin box seen in the film, which I think is a very gutsy decision, as they havn't really made any alterations to the original design.

Covering the tin box is a brown cardboard slipcase box with simple and classic design.

Inside the tin box is a black plastic mold to hodl everything in place. This mold is very thin and might get damaged in shipping but it was never meant to be luxurious so the quality isn't really that big of an issue.

As far as the other bonus stuff goes, there's a japanese translation of the Stephen King book Different Seasons, a leather book binder and a set of 3 postcards. Also in the box is a copy of Mark Kermodes BFI Modern Classics book about the film and also a japanese booklet.

All in all an extremely good idea for a case and a well carried out design choice for the entire set.


Disc contents / Extras

The dvd included with this set is identical to the standard 2 disc version released in Japan, and it's also pretty much identical to the R1 special edition as well.

There's a gret audio commentary by director Frank Darabont, followed by a number of good documentaries.

As usual, all the menus are in japanese so navigating can be a bit tricky.

All in all, this is definetly a great update for this classic film and I think it's one of those editions that everyone should own.

A true fan might also considder the R2UK 3 disc release as this has some extras not found on the japanese release (however, The Sharktank Redemption parody is not present on the R2UK version so one would have to get both to be totally covered).


Sidenotes

Disc specs are identical to the R1 2 disc special edition (only minor subtitling and language differences).

Jan. The movie is in English with either japanese or english subtitles... but it also come with a japanese dubbed audio track (as is common on a lot of japanese releases). So you can choose which ever version you want. Please see detailed audio and subtitle specs to the left.
