Dances with Wolves Blu-ray is 238 minutes with DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 and they fit the whole movie on one disc. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is 208 minutes, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is 223 minutes and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is 250 minutes. So they could easily fit these on one disc each instead of two discs. I think one reason they are doing this is so people would not buy a Blu-Ray box set with 3 Blu-rays and 9 DVD's. DVD's should not even be in a Blu-Ray box set.
This is a hustle trust me. All these movies studios do is try to screw us over. If we stand up to them like we did with Gladiator Blu-Ray they will stop doing this crap.
