Those Fox cocksuckers!
Looks like it will be just a rental for me on DVD now that they have decided to go down the Exclusives road with this title.
Oh well, I'll Netflix it. Glad I didnt support this is theaters now after this news.

Is Fox still supporting feature-only rental copies of DVDs? I know they have done this over the past year or so, so I'm not yet clear whether or not this would be another example.

Awesome, probably one of my favorite movies of the year. Glad the Blu-ray has plenty of special features.

Yeah, solid.

The DVD has only a commentary and deleted scenes and the Blu-Ray has a whole schmorgasboard (sp) of extras is soild?

Not to mention the Blu-Ray getting the Sid and Nancy spoof is the most crushing blow.

So let me get this straight. Your happy you did not support an independent film because the distribution company for the DVD held off about an hour of footage for the blu-ray yet still supplying the deleted scenes and commentary for the SD?

This is a statement that no true cinephile would ever EVER say...

I have no doubt that it's Mark Webb's fault somehow that Blu-Ray has a higher storage capacity than DVD!

give me a break--same old song and dance with you man....i still have a SDTV but picked up the Insignia Blu Ray player that came with "Monsters Vs Aliens" last week as an entry level player so i could take advantage of the features packed BR discs that are coming out....instead of b&m about the situation embrace the future my friend

and as far as your "glad i didn't support this in the theaters" comment it really shows you are no movie fan in my opinion....take your whining elsewhere please...

never got a chance to see this in the theater and can't wait to pick it up

I saw it twice in the movies. It's a great film. I'll just hold off on buying it until I finally succumb to this BR wave that has ruined the DVD industry... maybe a year or so. I have lots of other movies to catch up with in the meantime.

While I agree that all those who willingly put that much more on BD than standard DVD suck cock by choice, I don't quite follow how not seeing it in the theatres stuck it to anyone. It looked like a good movie and one I regret not seeing.

I wonder why they cannot put out a second disc with similar material to the BD, and stick any digital download versions up their ass sideways.

I wouldn't expect a threadcrap from such a DVD Talk Legend!

To each their own, I reckon, but this was possibly my second favorite movie of the year, and the only one I saw twice.

This video for the song "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?" should be an extra too:
