Default Blu-ray storage capacity put to use!

The movie, 3:10 to Yuma has the following features on Blu-ray:

* 122 minutes main feature
* Lossless 7.1 Surround
* 90 minutes of HD extras

Let's see that done in 30GBs (HD DVD) without compressing too much.

Wasn't like "Troy" or "Alexander" (one of those two) released on hd dvd w/ an extended edition that was like 3 hours long w/ tons of bonus crap and it fit on hd dvd just fine and had lossless sound as well?

Wow I bet the OP was really excited to post this, he even added an exclamation mark to show you his excitedment....quite lame.

It would be nice to have everything on one disc but sometimes having a second disc with more special features makes you feel like you got a good value for your money. I know when I buy a movie and it doesn't have an extra disc I say ''Damn''.

Personally I could care less either way... Anyway, this is something I've seen a lot of on both sides of the fence so it really seems to me like you're not nessesarly any less likely to get everything on a single BD disc than you are HD DVD... Perhaps it's because BD studios have the rather silly tendancy to add multiple lossess audio tracks to a single release (all in the same language and same # of channels etc).

Hey balpho!

How's my favorite Golden Girl doing? LOL

I think what the OP is trying to say is that the extras are in high definition. The extras on Troy are in 480i. Troy does have a lot of extras but they're in standard definition.

Are the 14 minutes in unskippable trailers considered extras? HD DVDs wouldn't waste space on that. They prefer to let consumers watch movies, not trailers.

Right from the review found here on HD Digest.

'3:10 to Yuma' comes to Blu-ray from Lionsgate Entertainment, who have made the infuriating decision to program no less than seven forced trailers (totaling 14 minutes in length) before the main menu, none which can be bypassed with the MENU key.
Enjoy your movie, after you watch all those trailers.
