Warner Home Video is really starting to piss me off. First, they start this trend of releasing 1-disc & 2-disc versions of movies on the same day, which means that the 2-disc versions almost never show up in the used stores anymore. Next, they start chintzing out on the bonus features, even on the 2-disc versions. The 2-disc version of "I Am Legend" doesn't have any bonus documentaries, only a code to see them on a website. And where are all the commentary tracks? Granted, I've heard that Chris Nolan doesn't like to explain his movies, so that might explain "Batman Begins" & "The Dark Knight." However, why didn't Bryan Singer do one for "Superman Returns"? He did commentaries for both "X-Men" movies.

But now, the latest insult-- the extended director's cut of "Terminator Salvation" is only available on Blu-Ray!

Tsk tsk. What kind of a world do we live in?
The extended director's cut DVD of Terminator Salvation is a Target Stores exclusive. It is $22.00 and supplies are limited.

Odd, I thought the director's cut was a little more wider then that, that's weak, Bad enough to do it only on BluRay, but to only make it a target exclusive? With limited supplies? Bah.

It's even more annoying in the UK, where we're starting to see a lot of cases where the censored-by-the-BBFC version is on DVD, but the uncut version is on Blu-Ray (c.f The Hangover)

BASTARDS. I don't care about the first scene, but the second shouldn't be blu-ray exclusive!

I don't know why Nolan hasn't recorded any recent commentary tracks, come to think of it. There's a commentary track on Memento and Insomnia, and I believe Following has one, too.

Re: Warner Home Video must die!

I'm curious as to why the director's cut was made with such a limited and exclusive run. As for the scenes in question, that they cut out? I have to wonder what the big deal was.

well, that's a dumb policy. I love extras, but can't afford an upgrade to blu ray anytime soon (although I would love too.)

Anyway, Glad the recent Watchmen ultimate cut was released intact.

Yes, yes, you're absolutely right, especially since I probably won't ever pick up the movie anyways. I just like to complain.

Wait... people want an extended Terminator: Salvation?

You people are nuts.

I've almost never bothered to buy a 2-disc edition when a 1-disc edition was also available. Bonus features are nice, but I'm not going to pay for the extra disc (if I have the choice).
I love extras, especially a decent documentary.
Same here. THe extended LOTR DVDs have set the standard as far as I'm concerned. They have a complete set of commentaries but also a through set of documentaries about the history of Tolkien and other about making the films. That's why I love DVDs so much - you get a great picture and sound but also plenty of extra information. Of course some are much better than others.

The Rated R cut of Terminator Salvation is ONLY on Blu-Ray?! What the #$%# is that!!!
Gotta hate that trend. It's not worth the jump in expense for me. Blu-Ray players are still a significant factor more expensive as are the discs themselves. While a the quality of the Blu-Ray feature is still higher, it's not enough better than my upconverting player to merit that extra expense.
Same here.

Re: Warner Home Video must die!

I love the extra's, I justrecently baught a PS3 and my first blue ray's were Star Trek and BSG: The Plan. I purposely buy movies that have more than one disk.I was disapointed with POTC: Dead Mans Chest extra's or lack there of. Blue Ray is totally cool, but I only plan on spending money on blue ray's that have a lot of effects. I'm not going to get everything blue ray, unless it's the same price as dvd. One disk movies are just not worth it to me, and are boring.

I've rented DVDs just for the features. It ticks me off when they skimp on the features.

Re: Warner Home Video must die!

Could be worse. The Blu-Ray version of Live Free Or Die Hard is only the theatrical cut (with Bruce's swearing deleted). If you want the extended cut, complete with yippi ki yay motherfucker, you have to get the standard DVD.

I'm sure they'll double-dip on that one eventually. Which is why I'm only buying a small selection of Blu-Rays at the moment. Many are inferior to previous DVD releases, or have been released with unacceptable HD transfers. No need to waste my money in either case.

Re: Warner Home Video must die!

I'm hard of hearing, so I always find it annoying when there's no English Subtitles/Captions on the DVD, but there's several different foreign languages on them.
