And even then, I hear more complaints than praises for things like "no bookmarks," etc. I assume this means BR isn't chapter-friendly either. Or that it's extraordinarily difficult to fast-forward through the programs. If Blu-Ray can't even get this right, this is why I continue to say "fuck 'em." Unless my untouched copies of Disney's Lady and the Tramp and Cinderella Diamond editions are worth a shit now as opposed to years from now when they're desperately OOP.
Scream Factory beg to differ, not to mention Synapse, Arrow, Second Sight, ect. As for chapter stops and fast forwarding, Bluray can do both, and probably easier then DVDs as you don't have to stop the movie and go to the menu screen to select a chapter, you can do it while the movie is playing.
