SHOCKED: Movies that don't have special editions yet

I was looking through my DVD collection the other day and checking out which ones needed to be upgraded from the bare bones versions to the special editions that are currently available. I decided to make note of which DVDs simply do NOT have a special edition at all. So this list isn't about movies that aren't on DVD yet, or DVDs that are SEs but you think they should be 2 disc sets, etc. I'm talking about movies currently on DVD that have NO special features at all and you're absolutely surprised the studios haven't released one yet, either because they were big box office hits, critical favorites or have found a dedicated cult following. Feel free to add to my list. This list involves region 1 releases only.

Air Force One
Beetlejuice
The Birdcage
Creepshow
Dick Tracy
Escape from LA
48 Hours
Fright Night
The Game
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) - does have a commentary though-
Misery
Nightbreed
Poltergeist
Prince of Darkness
Raising Arizona
The Road Warrior
Scary Movie
Scream
They Live
True Lies
Under Siege
Wayne's World

I'm genuinely surprised that none of these have even a marginally decent special edition DVD release yet.

Any other additions?

The one that immediately springs to mind is L.A. Confidential. The current disc does have a couple featurettes and an isolated music track, but nothing substantial like a making-of doc or even a director/actor commentary track, which this movie sorely needs. One of the finest films of the past decade surely deserves better than a relatively barebones release.

A special edition is coming next year.

I believe a Poltergeist SE is planned for 2007 as well.

Quiz Show - the "current" disc is sourced from an old laserdisc transfer riddled with edge enhancement, and the special features could be great, considering the history of the quiz show scandals.

Yeah, and I wouldn't expect SE's of Woody Allen films either.

The rerelease has some featurettes on the making of and the visual effects, etc. It's pretty decent.

A Time To Kill

I would love to get this one, but from what I hear, it's still a flipper! Won't go near it until something better comes out.
