Awesomely, despite early information suggesting otherwise it looks like Starship Troopers will have all the features except the isolated score and trailers.

My Mrs. Doubtfire DVD doesn't have a Christopher Columbus commentary track either.

The original non-special edition release from years ago features a commentary. Fox dimly decided it wasn't necessary for the new release on either format.

Looks like The Doors has all the SD extras after all. Thumbs up!

I'll have to start making note of when Universal BDs have their SD bonus features eaten by their U-Control Feature. It's a shame they won't provide them separately on the BDs as well.

Forgive if this has been mentioned, as I haven't read every post, but...

I went to buy "Fantastic Four" (2005) on BR a few weeks ago, and it just had the cast commentary & the trailer. All the other extras from the DVD versions were missing.

P.S. - I didn't buy it...

Feel free to add End of Days, Miami Vice and U-571 had BDs without the extras from their DVD (or HD DVD) releases.

I believe I already did that, although as I noted in an above post, they actually kinda sorta do. Universal's U-Control will more than likely contain all of that content. Again, though, it sucks that it's not available on the disc the way it was normally available. Same goes for The Thing, Baby Mama, Doomsday, etc.

I can confirm this. Supposedly, the German edition has the standard features included.

House of Flying Daggers

From Joshua Zyber review:
As with the other Blu-Ray discs that were released at the format's launch, this disc leaves out many bonus features that were included in the standard definition DVD. The commentary track is no where to be found (they decided to add a Spanish language track instead), and the 45-minute making-of featurette is also gone. The only extras that are included on this disc are Creating the Visual Effects, a four minute short, and a handful of storyboard comparisons. Both of these were ported over from the SD DVD of course. Heaven forbid that any unique content be included on the Blu-Ray discs.

As far as Baby Mama is concerned, the U-Control does not include Deleted Scenes, Alternate Ending or the SNL thing.

Scorpion King 2 also dropped ALL the DVD extras.

I read that Top Gun is missing the photo gallery and Lethal Weapon doesn't include the "director's cut". If someone wants to verify this please do.

Droidguy, are you still going to update this? It's been a few months.

Also, Carrie and Amityville Horror are missing all the extras from the SE DVDs (except Carrie has the trailer).

Correction for Bram Stoker's Dracula

I just wanted to add that Bram Stoker's Dracula does include the introduction by Coppola from the SE DVD. It's part of a "Watch Bram Stoker's Dracula with Francis Coppola" feature which starts with the intro then follows with the film and commentary. If I remember correctly this feature is identical to the SE DVD.

For me, the easiest system to help me keep the list current is, if someone points out a title, if someone else with a second of free time can check either the disc or DVDcompare or somewhere reliable and then just post here verifying the person's statement. Then I can just skip straight to updating the list with confidence that the submitted info is accurate.

Or the person submitting the information can provide the evidence. Or, based on the post content, or the poster's history, you can consider the information valid.

Waiting for someone else to verify would not work, just my opinion.

Tweaked a couple listings. Soon I'll give the list even more of an update.

Crappy Blu-rays = disappointing trend!

I saw a similar thread on a different board so I thought I'd start a discussion here.

I'm aware Blu-ray looks and sounds better than DVD so let's throw that part of the discussion out the window. My beef and the real subject of this thread is that I own hundreds of DVDs and as I've started my blu-ray collection, I've noticed that many of my favorite movies, especially the older ones, had great bonus materials yet the blu-ray comes with jack shit. Take a movie like Speed: a loaded Five Star Collector's DVD. The blu-ray: almost nothing! Predator had a great DVD but none of the excellent features were ported over. Man on Fire was stacked on DVD but the blu-ray has absolutely nothing! I also notice that as studios abandon DVD, they've also seemingly abandoned special features. Even new blockbusters like The Hangover, Terminator Salvation, The Dark Knight all had lackluster bonus features. I know most if not everyone here has experienced this so lets list some of your crappy blu-rays and discuss them on this thread.

Re: Crappy Blu-rays = disappointing trend!

It's been discussed before countless times, even in recent threads. The answer is to keep your DVD if you want the features. New movies with crappy bonus features that are also on the DVD is a different issue.

Speed, Predator, and Man On Fire are all relatively "older" Fox titles that were released earlier on in BD's lifespan back when that studio was not carrying over most (or any in some cases) bonus material....since then, they have changed their tune and do carry over most (if not all) previous bonus features...

Basically, you just happened to unfortunately run into some of the worst offenders with those specific titles....it is NOT a "trend" for bonus material to NOT be ported now, but rather the trend has actually become TO carry it over....

All three are Warner titles....they hardly even put ANY special features on their standard DVD releases anymore....again, this seems to be more of an isolated problem with WARNER than an overall trend, as many titles from other studios have been absolutely jam-packed with great bonus features...

Re: Definitive List of Blu-Rays without all SD extras

I want to keep this thread current, but I am very busy. I will get to work on it sooner or later, if I have time.

I know the new Anchor Bay Blu-Rays are all missing the DVD extras (one doesn't even have a menu).

Re: Definitive List of Blu-Rays without all SD extras

Jerry Maguire - video commentary, photo gallery
King Kong - Featurettes
Dinosaur - Commentary, Featurettes, and lot more
Waterworld - Extended Cut
Commando - Director's cut, commentary, featurettes, deleted scenes, still galleries
Chronicles of Narnia: Lion, Witch, and Wardrobe - Extended cut, documentary
Mr & Mrs Smith - Unrated cut, documentary, featurettes
Patriot - Theatrical cut, featurette, trailers, photo gallery
Last of the Mohicans - Theatrical - extended cut


Do I have to be really specific in what extra it is? Some of them, unfortunately I sold before I knew it was missing, and some I didn't buy the blu-ray yet to know exactly what is missing.
