* Some films released by Creator/TheCriterionCollection (previously known for its fantastic extras) have been barebones releases, such as the remastered edition of the film ''Film/{{Brazil}}''. The company also runs a separate entity called Eclipse, which releases film-only themed collections of mostly-obscure films that have artistic and/or historic merit but won't attract big sales. Finally, Criterion has the Essential Art House line: movie-only editions of Janus Films titles that have received a proper Criterion release, the closest thing the company has to a budget line.

Added DiffLines:

** Warner Bros. was notorious for treating most of its catalog titles this way for the first few years of the format. While some of them were revisited later with more elaborate editions, others never have been. A good example of this is 1981's ''Film/{{Arthur}}'', which never received a widescreen DVD release...even though the poorly-regarded sequel did. While the 2011 Blu-Ray disc finally offers up the film in its proper aspect ratio, it's still vanilla otherwise, sharing disc space with said sequel.

* Whenever the studios start supporting a new home video format, they tend to give movies' releases on it the most bonus features, with releases on older formats having little to no extras by comparison. Justified in cases when the older mediums don't have enough memory for a ton of bonus features.



** That landmark March 25, 1997[[note]]''Blade Runner'' was released the day after[[/note]] release of ''Twister'' also has comparatively paltry extras by today's standards (the back of the box literally touts "language selection" and "interactive menus" as special features), but at least it had the theatrical trailer.

** When a limited edition Blu-ray disc set of the first three movies was confirmed for release for February 2016, it was revealed that the special features from the original DVD releases would be excluded from the set. In addition, it's been said that the Pikachu shorts would be left out of the set for rights issues. So what do we get from the set? The movies in 16:9 widescreen with a Stereo presentation of the 4Kids English track, and.....that's about it.

* Within Japan, nearly every studio issues new anime releases in two separate editions. One is a retail version with fancy cover art, bells and whistles like commentary tracks or DVD-only episodes, and often cool {{feelies}} of some sort, ranging from postcards to full-size action figures, T-shirts, or concert tickets; the other will be a Vanilla Edition for the video-rental market, and be a much more bare-bones release, typically containing only the episodes. Given the high cost of anime [=DVD=]s and Blu-Rays in Japan, where 5000 yen for a disc with ''two episodes'' isn't uncommon, this practice is undoubtedly meant to give fans a reason to shell out the money for the retail discs instead of just renting the whole series for 100 yen a pop.

* The Creator/ADVFilms release of the ''Godzilla'' film ''Destroy All Monsters'' (considered one of the best in the series) does not have menus or scene selections. The movie just starts. And it is just the English dub. Then when they released the film again in 2004 it was an exact copy of the first release with a soundtrack included. Fortunately, Media Blasters released the film on DVD and Blu-Ray in 2011, though there now seems to be some sort of [[ExecutiveMeddling problem with Toho regarding the extras]].

* The "[[MilestoneCelebration 20th Anniversary]]" Blu-Ray of ''Film/TheRocketeer'' caused some frustration for containing no bonus features, except for the original trailer, which is presented in pan and scan to boot. It should also be noted that ''The Rocketeer'' is but one of a large amount of live-action Disney movies that came to DVD with no bonus features.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' launched a new era of home entertainment for Creator/{{Pixar}}. Each of the preceding movies got 2-Disc Collector's Edition [=DVDs=] with hours of bonus features. By contrast, ''Cars'' got a DVD containing nothing more than three shorts, some deleted scenes, and a short interview with the director as bonus features.

Eventually, ''Cars 2'' became Pixar's first movie to come to 3-D Blu-Ray. As a result, both the DVD ''and'' the Blu-Ray received paltry selections of bonus features, with consumers having to buy the 3-D version to get all the extras! Fortunately, ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' each have 2-D and 3-D Blu-Rays with identical or nearly-identical amounts of extras, giving this trend a quick death.

* Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Phase Two movies almost always have drastically smaller amounts of Blu-Ray bonus features compared to Phase One pictures, apparently because Marvel planned to withhold certain extras for a box set of the whole phase--which includes a bonus disc containing ''166 minutes'' of exclusive extras.

* Creator/{{Disney}} has started releasing Blu-Ray Discs of some of their least marketable live-action movies exclusively through the Disney Movie Club, without any bonus features (even those few that ''did'' have extras on their DVD releases underwent this treatment).

Potentially justified as MGM released the Bond 50 DVD in conjunction with a jam-packed Blu-Ray set that bears the same name, and also dominated the marketing materials.

Apparently, Warner Bros. really wants you to buy a Blu-Ray player.

* The original ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'' DVD contained only the film and some trailers, while some other editions had a MusicVideo for "What Would Brian Boitanno Do?" The Blu-ray release is similarly bare-bones, but there's at least a commentary track from Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone.

* The Creator/{{Netflix}} Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse have been released on DVD\Blu-Ray with absolutely zero additional content. And being a web exclusive series is not that much of an excuse, as Netflix's own ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'' and ''Series/HouseOfCards'' have had some extras on occasion.

* Creator/{{Disney}}'s thing now is to make most of the bonus features only available in the Blu-Ray and Digital Copy versions, making the [=DVDs=] vanilla or very close to it. It should be noted that Disney was Blu-Ray exclusive during the format war with HD-DVD, so that may have been a factor in their decision to push it so hard. The Digital Copies that come with extras likely do so to entertain the increasing amount of people who stopped buying movies on physical media. This trend sometimes gets inverted for 2-Movie Collection Blu-Ray/DVD combo packs, including only the two movies on the Blu-Ray, and a few bonus features on the enclosed DVD copies. Examples include ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove''[=/=]''Kronk's New Groove'' and ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''[=/=]''Disney/LiloAndStitch2StitchHasAGlitch'' (and mind you that the latter's franchise had ''four'' movies made).
