Don't know if this is the proper forum for this... but here goes... Over the weekend I went to Blockbuster to rent "The Time Traveler's Wife." I got the DVD because the two Blu-ray copies were out. After the wife and I watched the movie, I proceeded to look for the special features to see if there was anything interesting. There were no special features. Not one. I found this kind of odd. I looked at the cover and below the usual stickers, but printed on the actual cover insert were the words "Rental Copy" in big bold letters. I looked at the disc itself, and again there were the same words "Rental Copy." It looked like it was printed like this at the factory and not by Blockbuster. When I went to return it, I looked at the copies for "The Time Traveler's Wife" that they had on sale. Sure enough, there was a making of doc that was not on my rental copy, listed right on the back. The clerk said that yes, over the last few months some DVDs have been released for rental like this but he did not know why. He also didn't think it was studio specific, but after further investigation, by me, it seemed to be all recent Warner Bros (and New Line) movies, ie... The Informant, Terminator: Salvation among others. Oh, and the Blu-ray had the Special Features. So, what is the purpose of this? I cannot believe it is cheaper to make "featureless" copies of these movies. I mean, once you are stamping 'em out, what difference does it make? What, is the plus for Blockbuster when I can get the exact same content at home by ordering the movie "On Demand" at home for the same price (and in HD) I mean, part of the reason I rented the flick was because I like to browse thru the extras. I don't get it. It's not like video stores need another reason for folks to stay away from them. I used to rent from Hollywood Video, but the stores near me have closed down, so I don't know if other video stores are also stocking "Rental Copies."
