I am in a PM argument with another contributer that says that this is a box set not bonus movie.... urging... almost to the point of demanding me to pull my no vote per rules.

FRONT:


BACK:


Now it is in the database correctly  as bonus movie situation... the contributer is trying to turn it into a boix set.

Well, the front suggests a box set, the back suggests a bonus movie, so I'd like to know what the spine says, and - more importantly - how they are presented in the main menu.

From the rules:
Quote:
Bonus Feature Films The term "Bonus Feature Film" is used to define any feature film that is included as part of the bonus material for a single release. These are not the same as Double Features or Anthology Collections which are a collection of films grouped together which require the "Box Set" contribution rules. Do not confuse "Bonus Feature Films" with "Any video documentary material regarding the film, or those associated with it." Those are Featurettes. Some examples of Bonus Feature Films are:
– Previous movie versions, example "Ben-Hur: Four-Disc Collector's Edition" which includes the 1925 version.
– Companion movie bonuses, example "Season of the Witch" which includes "There's Always Vanilla" from the same director.
Create the profile for the main feature in line with the standard Contribution Rules with the title of the Bonus Feature Film added to the Other Features field. Create a child profile for the "Bonus Feature Film" using its individual UPC if available or use Disc ID (read on a DVD-ROM) if not available.

As Psycho from Texas is a feature film, it would fit the rules on being included as a child profile.

Quoting Nosferatu:

I think the point of dispute is whether to set up the profile this way (bonus feature film):

The Gates of Hell
-- Psycho From Texas

or this way (box set):

The Gates of Hell / Psycho from Texas
-- The Gates of Hell
-- Psycho From Texas

I agree with GSyren that the two sides give different impressions.  If the spine says "The Gates of Hell" then I'd set it up as the first option (bonus feature film).
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.

The spine can be seen at:

https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Gates-of-Hell-and-Psycho-from-Texas-Blu-ray/245992/

Click on the image for a bigger version. The spine says: The Gates of Hell and Psycho From Texas. In that case, I'd probably treat it as a box set, rather than as a "Bonus Feature Film". But although the spines certainly nudges this towards the "box set" set-up, it's still interesting how the disc's menu presents it.

Sounds good.  Life's too short to put up with someone who can't, at minimum, be civil in a dispute.
