1- Almost all of the content in the trivia track is simply repeating what was said near the same time in the Audio Commentary.
2- This release has only a single trailer while other releases have three.
3- This runtime includes the introduction.

NOTES:
The Scarlet Box Bluray is superior but much more expensive and gives you the first three movies. If you don't want or need the first three movies then that may not be the best choice for you. So go with the old Starz/Anchor Bay Bluray release instead if you must pick a single release. Most, if not all, of the still gallery content from the original DVD seems to be in the various still galleries on this release as well but we don't know for sure.

NOTES:
In addition to several exclusives, the Scarlet Box Bluray release has everything the Anchor Bay/Starz Bluray has except the Trivia Track. So you'll need to add the Anchor Bay/Starz release if you want the trivia track but be sure and read footnote #1 above before you make that choice. Finally, add the original release DVD if you want to be sure that you get all the Still Gallery content from that release.
