They've junked the extras on plenty of UK discs, not just Smokey...

Two of the best looking (and sounding) blurays I have are both Universal - The Mummy and The Fast and the Furious so they can do it right if they want to, but most of the time we are just cash cows to them that will buy any old rubbish they deign to release...and we do (well not me as a long time ago I stopped buying day & date and now buy nothing until I've seen at least 2 reviews)

TFATF I can't comment on (I'd rather gouge my eyes out with a rusty spoon than watch that), but The Mummy has got some heavy EE. Hell, it always has done, right from the very first DVD release through the DVHS, HD DVD and the Blu-ray, which I've all owned at some point.

It's another old, old master that's been run through the DNR-O-Matic™ for a further 'clean-up', which had the typical Universal effect of removing detail as well. The HD DVD/Blu comparison at caps-a-holic is very illuminating in that regard.

Seeing TFAFT at my mates place and I thought the transfer was pretty awful, lots of EE and DNR in my opinion. Strangely it varied alot scene to scene though.
