I actually think G'54 and GMK would make a better double feature. GMK is the best direct follow-up to the original film and its specific themes.

Shin Godzilla is more of a ground-up, modern reimagining of the original Godzilla's core concepts, similar to other reboots like Gamera: Guardian of the Universe, Ultraman: The Next or Kong: Skull Island. I do think it would be interesting to watch those reboots back-to-back with their respective originals.

^ Shin would make a good double feature with Return of Godzilla.
