A "single release" would mean a single film vs. a box set, IMO.  So, this is not a bonus feature film per definition and it should have its own profile in the box set.

I don't think that disqualifies it as a bonus feature since the contribution guidelines tell us to create a separate child profile anyway for a "bonus feature film".

I think it does, by definition.  If it is a "bonus feature film" it should be the child profile of another film, not of a box.  If we cannot attach it to another film as a bonus, then by definition it is not a bonus feature film, no matter what the box cover says.

It seems like a disservice to leave it out (and just mention it in Other Features), but on the other hand it would seem odd that "3 Disaster Movies" has 4 child profiles. And the current title for this profile is Weather Wars/Scorcher/Miami Magma ...

Any thoughts?


I know one or twice I've created child profiles beyond what the number in the set title says there should be. I know it seems weird but if there are x number of movies in a set, there should be child profiles for each movie, particularly if all of them are feature length. I can't recall if I noted the bonus movie under Features but I definitely created the child profile. I think for run time I just went along with what the set said.

Well, rdodolak showed me that I should create a child profile either way, so it really only comes down to just two minor things:
- Mention it as a bonus movie in Other Features, or not.
- Include the running time in the parent profile, or not.

I doubt that very many users would pay attention to if it is mentioned in Other Features or not. The running time is a bit more interesting. In this case the running time on the back cover is for all 4 films. Given this, I will treat WotW 2 as a normal "non-bonus" film.

Thanks for your input, everyone!

I personally would not include it in the running time.
