    I think I won’t be the only one who’d like it to be clearer that the AU release is missing those features! Could you edit the article to cross that out or put it in red or something?

    Equally, as a casual reader of your post-release review (linked in the comments), I would have completely missed the references to the DVD being incomplete, so it would be nice to highlight that.

    It matters enough to me that I’m about to return the copy that I’ve just bought out of disappointment – as with the recent sports coverage snafus in this country, it’s becoming increasingly important to clarify to studios and companies that we’re happy to pay for content, but we aren’t going to put up with second-rate BS. I don’t know if I’m an “average” customer, but I pretty much bought the movies /for/ the special features. If I just wanted to see the main feature again I’d rent it for $3 instead of buying it for $30!

    • Fair point, have updated per your suggestions.

      As for the review, I’ve mentioned it is bare bones and missing several features and “disappointing”, but I have highlighted for casual readers with a bold “What’s missing?”.

      All we can do is agree with you: it’s a real shame.
