    Can anyone help with this?

    I watched a film on Film 4 this week called "Safety Not Guaranteed" and really enjoyed it. When this happens, I then tend to have a look on IMDB and Amazon for further information and opinion, just out of interest really.

    The user reviews on Amazon mention a few "Making Of" featurettes on the DVD edition, but the Blu Ray, supposedly, has just a trailer. Given a choice, I'd always buy the Blu over the DVD, but I do like my extra features!

    Does anyone know of a website that lists all the extras across different formats of a film release? Apologies if this has already been asked before, I did try to use the Search function on here but nothing came up.

    I promise to Bookmark any answers for future reference!

    Thanks very much
    Derek

    Just be aware that this particular website pays no attention whatsoever to PQ, only on the extras.

    ie if they had a Blu-ray with absolutely terrible VHS style PQ but had tons of exclusive extras, & compared it with a disc that had beautiful PQ but was barebones, they would give the recommendation to the VHS version even though the PQ is poor in comparison.

    Oh, that's interesting.

    In which case, is there another website that compares picture and/or sound quality as well please?

    Not really, most websites don't tend to review discs from multiple regions- it's usually just one or the other. DVD beaver sometimes does comparisons, but their reviews aren't particularly good & as extensive/comprehensive as DVDcompare's comparison site.

    You best bet is probably to look up any differences in the extras on DVDcompare, & then look up individual US & UK reviews.

    DVD-Basen is my one stop site for any disc reviews as it indexes multiple review sites.

    Caps-a-holic is also great for comparing PQ of different releases.
