All I want is for the WB to do a two-disc (AND ONLY A TWO-DISC) with a 5.1 EX track and both trailers and I'll be happy.

I kept having to putoff seeing this theatrically, and now I might as well wait for the DVD since I know I'll be buying it anyway.

I saw it at a DLP theater and it was absolutely gorgeous. Interestingly, most of the audience was adults. Man, you missed out.

Warner Brother's won't do only a two-disc... for some reason's the studio's (especially Warner Brothers) have really gotten into the double release thing.

As long as Warner coninues to release 1 and 2-disc version AT THE SAME TIME (instead of releasing a 2-disc version a few months after everyone has bought the 1 disc version --- FOX!!) why should we care?

Some people aren't into extras and want a movie-only version so that they can save a few bucks. What's wrong with that? Seriously, sometimes people bitch about the STUPIDEST things!

It's really not a stupid thing to complain about. When stores see that there is a one disc version and a two disc version they make the 2 disc like 5 or 6 dollars more even though the msrp is just a dollar or two more. Plus Columbia House will most likely not sell the 2 disc sets as enrollments since they will consider them special. If they would just release the two disc sets, then everyone can save a lot of money.

Since the movie is so short I'd expect them to just include the extras on a single disc.

WB released Terminator 3 as a 2-disc only and it sold for $15 on release week. Matrix 2 and 3 were also 2-disc only and sold for $15 on their release weeks.

FOX released Star Wars as a 2-disc only and it sold for $15 on release week.

For some reason, retailers seem to think that the bonus disc is worth $8 more than the movie disc, even though the retail price is only a difference of 1 or 2 dollars.

The reason people are complaining is because they used to be able to get 2-disc releases for $15 in stores, now all of a sudden it's $23.

None of those 2-disc sets have an MSRP of only "a dollar or two more" than the 1-disc version.

Exactly. It's a shitty trend.

Only positive as it has cut down my buying of some titles I was on the fence about.

According to the retail price that DDD gives ("Why pay $XX.XX"):

Batman Begins
1-disc $28.95
2-disc $29.95

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
1-disc $28.95
2-disc $30.95

War of the Worlds (2005)
1-disc $29.95
2-disc $39.95 (this is a rare example, it seems)

Constantine
1-disc $28.95
2-disc $30.95

So, yes, there are numerous instances of this case, and the fact that they're not as heavily discounted is what ticks most of us off. I wouldn't mind paying the $2-3 extra to get the 2-disc version if they would just discount them the same amount.

Exactly. The Big Box stores are using the 1 disc versions as loss leaders, and not discounting the 2 disc ones as much release week.

It royally sucks.

Which ones are video stores renting? The single-disc versions?

Yep, I've only seen the single disc ones in the rental stores. Another crappy aspect of it.
