How about adding Speed to the list? There is a lot of material on the 2 disc edition that was not added to the Blu-ray version.

2 Disc Award Series

Blu-ray

For some titles, it might be worth mentioning that they have the extras from the first disc ported over but not the second disc. For instance, Speed and Cast Away each have the commentary from disc 1 of each title's respective SE DVD set, but lack the 2nd disc extras. So, one could create a custom special edition with all of the extras (and more, if you count the "game" in Speed) by combining the BD with the 2nd DVD. I plan to do that as soon as I get a source for 2-disc cases.

The problem is a) this is not technically true, because Cast Away does not have the trailer on Disc 1. Not a big deal, but it still makes the statement incorrect on a level, and b) I guess I feel this is fairly easy to deduce from the list as it is already. The only two examples on the list thus far that I can think of where this does not apply are The Devil's Rejects and RoboCop, since most titles with 2-disc sets have the movie and commentary on the first disc, and bonus features on the other.

Plus...most of the discs this would apply to are Fox discs

I find DVD-ROM features to be negligible and with bonus discs, obviously you don't even necessarily get that stuff buying the standard DVD, so those things I'm skipping over, but thanks for the update!

Thanks. Btw, you may soon run into the forum long post bug. You won't be able to add to your initial post after it gets a certain size.

You may want to ask posters #2 and 3 to delete their posts so that you have post #2 so continue the list into someday.

am I reading this thread correctly - all the stuff listed above is MISSING from the BD version? If so, then studios can't be serious about people buying BD over SD.. That's nuts to lose all those supplements on a media that has significantly more space to store them!

Or am I misreading this thread?

It's not just with Blu Ray. You know all the double and triple dips, the collector's editions, anniversary sets, etc that "upgrade" older DVDs? They more often than not leave extras off the new improved versions.

That's why I'm not jumping into upgrading everything. I had Beta and switched everything to VHS. Then I switched all the VHS to DVD. But not everything was on DVD so I picked up a Laserdisc player. I bought almost everything I could get my hands on. Then I had to upgrade to the more deluxe version. I'm pretty tired of wholesale upgrades. For a movie I watch once a year if that, SD is fine. Especially when it has a longer/unrated/directors cut that the BD doesn't have.

You are indeed reading this thread correctly. The only real answer is that studios are lazy.

HOWEVER, it does help to really read the entries for the movies. I guess it's just as important in my mind to show that what you're losing is negligible as it is to show that you're losing all the extras. Also, the entries will reflect what's missing from all DVD releases, and sometimes it can't be expected that the BR will contain all those features (for example, between the Universal and Lionsgate versions of American Psycho).

I have to admit when I found out I had access to a player I found myself buying more Blues than I planned on...it's true what they say, once you go hi-def you can't go back!

I will agree that given a choice of 2 movies to watch I find myself picking the hi-def. I greatly prefer the HD version. I just have way too many titles to just start upgrading the minute they are released.

I don't upgrade if it's barely a once a year movie.
I don't upgrade if I already have a nice multi disc SE
I don't upgrade if the extended/unrated/directors cut is not available in hi-def

I'll upgrade any of my DVD-r's or first generation non-anamorphic discs.
I'll upgrade any movie that are true favorites and get watched repeatedly in a year

I am fairly sure there are two tracks: Wiper, and Austin, and then Wiper by himself. The Blu-Ray supposedly has the former but not the latter.

I don't think the info for Men in Black is entirely accurate. It most certainly has the original making-of featurette, but I'm not able to fully explore some of the other features right now.

Oh, yeah, I forgot to fix that.
