I'll take a few shoddy CG effects in exchange for a good story any day of the week.
Having how much other modern Japanese films have overreached in what they could do effects wise makes me love the (almost) flawless effects work of Shin Godzilla even more.

Not to mention the story just completely shits all over the train wreck that was the 2014 Godzilla.
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

Everyone is talking about bad CG in the film and no one has yet mentioned the part with the blood in the tunnel at the beginning of the film?
I couldn't find a gif of it but this part  SPOILER: Show

My memory may be wrong here here but I recall this being very jarring.

Yes. This is the high watermark for modern visual effects in Japan. I couldn't help but be impressed by Toho.

Apparently The film does have slightly better effects with this release. (Heated exhaust) can anyone spot other differences?

The pamphlet that comes with the Blu-ray seems to have screenshots of the two different angles of Godzilla demonstrated in the YouTube video you linked. There seems to be a list of other shots that might have changed from the theatrical release to the home video release, but seeing as how I can't read Japanese, I can really only make out the numbers and assume that those are the scene numbers that contain the changes made.

Can't find any real noticeable differences in the Bluray cut but it's not like I have the theatrical print on hand.

Personally, I'm more interested in some of the abandoned concepts. Like how in this special effects reel you can see at a certain point in production they were planning on having Godzilla vomit acidic blood.

The Bluray does not have the theatrical release? Well that sucks.

Got to admit, that concept is bad-ass; foreshadowing the Atomic Breath sequence(I love it). Judging by how that clip uses an on-site shot with the prop "river blood" tells me that the shot was dropped after Principal-photography, probably due to how cheesy the implemented CG was, and they couldn't get it to look right. (If only they used a Tokusatsu miniature) To Quote CommanderFish,

Thing I want to add is that they should have looked into what the special effects personal did for the blood elevator scene from "The Shining"

I just re-watched the film, (Holy Cr@p) the CG during the final operation has definitely been improved on.
