 Excellent news.  I love this film.

I'm also glad to see this belated announcement (and especially glad I held off on the SD). This was one of my favorite films of 2008.

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

Ditto, Craig. Will definitely grab this one.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

Why is the Blu-Ray missing so many bonus features?  It shouldn't be because of space issues...it's a relatively short film on a BD-50.  Please don't shortchange us, Universal.

I was thinking of buying this but I won't if they leave features off the BD.  What year is this again???

Missing extras? Compared to what release?

The bonus features in Ron's post are identical to those listed for the R1 DVD (in several reviews.)

No, Walter.  Look again.  In Ron's posting, all the usual extras are listed for the DVD, but for the blu-ray, only three items are listed.

I wonder if that is an error - I can't see why they would drop any extras for the blu-ray, given its listed as a BD-50.

I think it's more likely that those other extras are incorporated into the 'My Scenes' feature on the Blu-ray. Universal tends to do that.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints.

I think you're confusing "My Scenes" with "U-Control". "My Scenes" is just an option to bookmark (and I think share) your favorite scenes.

Ah. Well, hell if I know what's going on then. /img/vbsmilies/htf/tongue.gif

In another forum, someone with the disc to hand from Best Buy says that it only has deleted scenes, gag reel, and boat trip around Bruges.


So the press release was correct, and the US blu-ray has indeed dropped features from the DVD.  Why for god's sake? /img/vbsmilies/htf/thumbsdown.gif

Who knows. All I know is I watch maybe 1% - if that - of bonus features these days, so no big deal for me.

Deal breaker for me.  I was close to upgrading this weekend, but debated over and over and over.   This is the kicker.


Thanks for making my decision much easier!!!
