Do you like/want special features (bonus features) on Blu-ray (making of documentaries, commentaries, and other stuff)?

Edit: This poll isn't about whether you want Profile 2.0-only bonus features, but is about whether you like/want special features like 'making of' documentaries, commentaries, and other special features on Blu-ray (features that will usually be playable all types of player).

I care about the 1.0 and 1.1 special features a lot. The 2.0 special features not at all.

2.0 is horrible IMO.

No need whatsoever for it... not worth the extra bones at all.

I didn't mean Profile 2.0-only features - I meant features that will usually work on all players, like documentaries, commentaries etc.

I do care about them BUT I can deal with subpar special features if the PQ and AQ are top notch.

Okay, to expand on my previous comment. I am all for behind the scenes, making of the action scene, bloopers, deleted scenes, commentaries by actors and directors. These add to my enjoyment of the movie, and I almost always watch them on a movie.

If they'd offer a cheaper barebone version of BD movies, in most cases i'd buy that one over the one with more features. I like an audio commentary every once and then, but for most of the extras i really don't care.

Only if it's a movie I am a MAJOR MAJOR fan of, like Back to the Future (so that's only DVD obviously but the idea is the same). Most of the time I won't watch them, but if it was an inspiring true-story, i like it when the actual person it was based on, is featured in the special features.

i could really care less about hardly any special features.

The ones I do care for is when they have documentaries on movies based on historical events. Kind of puts the movie into a better perspective.

Some deleted scenes, most of the time though, they were deleted for a reason Wish that blu-ray would start allowing people though to insert deleted scenes into the actual movie with seemless branching. Id love to edit in a Mon Mothma formation of the Rebel Alliance scene into Revenge of the Sith.

Some games that almost give the movie replay value. The Car finder in Cars is a very good example or Liar's Dice helped me understand that scene in DMC a little better.

PiP, BD-Live, Commentaries, Gag Reels, all can go away.

I like some of the bonus features (the Dark Knight Prologue on BB was especially nice), but aside from the trailers, I don't really care.

I wouldn't buy a BD with less features than the DVD unless it was CHEAP... With that being said. They need to make 2 models of every BD.

1) $10ish - JUST the movie in all it's glory
2) +$20 - ALL the features and the movie.

As a lover of cinema, I'm all about special features. I'm a big fan of anything that gives insight into the filmmaking process or helps me appreciate the film in a new way.

I'm excited to see what the studios will develop with Bonus View and BD-Live features. I'm always amazed at the vitriol toward Bonus View and BD-Live expressed here. Those are major selling points for the Blu-ray format that can only help adoption and this is blu-ray.com. If there should be cheerleading anywhere for the studios to make full use of those technologies, it should be here.

Dependes on the movie. Like Batman begins. When Goonies, Dark Knight, Iron Man, Incredible Hulk come out then I'll watch them. So for me it's a mix between yes and no.
