The One and Only HD-DVD/SD Extras comparison thread

The purpose of this thread is to compare the bonus features on HD-DVDs to the bonus features on the SD DVD versions. This is to help completist collectors decide wether to unload the SD versions of the movie or keep them. This thread is a constant work in progress and all help is appreciated.

I do not have the SD versions of about 90% of the HD-DVDs I own. Most of the information presented here is taken from DVDtalk reviews, dvdcompare.net and other sources.

Trailers that have nothing to do with the feature and forced trailers I do not consider bonus features and are not counted.

Text-only bonus features such as "Production Notes" and "Cast and Crew Biographies" are not counted either.

DVD ROM content is also not counted.

FYI, The Last Samurai has all of the original DVD-Rom material, but it's been presented with the rest of the features now.

Lethal Weapon is missing 1 deleted scene.

Also, I'd list when movies like Sky Captain have the trailers in HD.

I have been working a lot lately and didn't have any time to update the list. I added spots for all of the September releases and fixed up a few things on some of the other titles.

If possible, I'd like for that to be done in this thread as well. I prefer keeping the number of stickied threads as lean as possible.

I'll see if I have the time to cobble something together, send it to Leech, and he can edit it in to the list.

I'm not giving an ETA just yet, though.

Updated again. I am not sure if I should bother counting text only extras such as "production notes" and "cast and crew biographies". Does anyone even consider them extras? The same thing goes for DVD ROM stuff.

When I make these sorts of comparisons in the reviews I write, I disregard all of that too.

List as been updated again. Text only extras and DVD ROM content are no longer counted. Some of the sites have pics of next months Warner titles up. I may jump the gun and add those titles before reviews are released.
