    Post your "easteregg" finds here:

    For those who aren't familiar with "eastereggs" when referring to DVDs, they're the neat little hidden things on your disks. You find them by playing around with the remote control on the menus and/or during the movie. Most of the time, there's a hidden button somewhere on the menu structure.

    For instance, I remember "The Matrix" had a white rabbit that popped up intermittently during the movie. If you pressed select on your dvd remote when you saw him, you viewed a "hidden" video file. I think it was something about how they did the special effects you just saw.

    One of my all time favorite comedy movies Space Balls
    Ludicrous speed:
    Wait at the main menu until the astronaut or cow appear in the middle of the crosshairs. Start the movie at this point to get "ludicrous speed".

    Here's a few..

    [bold]The 10th Kingdom[/bold]
    From disc one's main menu, select 'Kingdoms'. You will see a map that lists 9 kingdoms and asks you to 'Search for the Hidden 10th Kingdom'. You move left from the 1st kingdom to the 3rd, then you move up to the 4th, then you move left to reach the castle. Press 'Enter'. You have found the 'Hidden 10th Kingdom,' as you can see from the text screen that comes up. But there's more. Once you've read the message, you can click 'Up' one more time to highlight the Magic Mirror. Selecting it reveals a short clip showing two of the characters entering the 10th Kingdom

    [bold]Agent Cody Banks[/bold]
    Go to special Features. Go down to developing Agent Cody Banks and hit left on your remote it will make the thing going around go green and click it and your there. Thats it!!! To access the "hidden stuff" (things that the director? snuck in), highlight the CIA logo, than press up. at the top left corner, an icon will turn green. press enter. Go To The Special Features and go to the second page and go to the teaser trailer and click right up left down and click enter to view clips from agent cody banks 2

    [bold]Alien 3[/bold]
    Go to the "Special Features" menu and there select the "Making Of" documentary. After the documentary is over, a second "Alien 3" Trailer starts that includes scenes that are not even in the final cut of the film.

    [bold]American Pie Collectors Edition[/bold]
    From the main menu go to the disc's "Bonus Features" menu and select "Recommendations". In this section you will find trailers for "The Blues Brothers", "Animal House", and "American Graffiti". Another easter egg can be found when you check out the commercial of the "American Pie" soundtrack on the disc. The commercial itself is followed by the music video for "You Wanted More" by Tonic.

    [bold]American Pie 2 Collectors edition[/bold]
    Universal Home Video has hidden a truly funny Easter Egg on their release of the teenage comedy 'American Pie 2.' On the disc’s main menu select 'Bonus Materials.' Once there, go to the second page that is accessed through the arrow at the bottom of the screen. Now, press the 'Up' arrow key on your remote control to highlight the 'Bonus Materials' logo at the top of the screen. Press 'Enter' now and you will get the VIP treatment from the movie’s stars Jason Biggs, Mena Suvari and Thomas Ian Nicholas as they catch you searching for Easter Eggs. And Easter Eggs is what you’re about to get.

    [bold]The Avengers[/bold]
    Hidden Trailers Highlight reel recommendations then press enter then highlight movie projector then enter there you will find movie trailers for Batman&Robin,Dangerous Liaisons,The Man Who Would Be King,National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and U.S. Marshals.

    [bold]Battlelfield Earth[/bold]
    From the disc's main menu go to the 'Special Features.' Here press the 'right' arrow key on your remote control to highlight the spaceship. If you press 'Enter' now, you will get to see some B-roll footage with make-up tests. On the second page of Special Features you can do the same thing and highlight the Pyramid. This will allow you to watch even more additional behind-the-scenes footage - this time a mob scene clip. But that's still not all, if you highlight the hidden elements in the 'Cast & Crew' section you will get to see a stunt test clip, and in the 'Languages' menu you can access yet another brief stunt test clip. But that's still not all! Another clip can be found in the scene selections on the disc. Go to the 'Scenes Selections' for chapter 7 - 12 and scroll through all of the chapters until you highlight a hidden Psychlo image. Pressing 'Enter' will bring up a scene of an extra shooting a Bazooka! The biggest hidden feature is unsuspectingly found in the commentary track on the disc. If you watch the film with the audio commentary on, occasionally a Psychlo letter will appear on the screen. Selecting it will then take you to some interesting behind-the-scenes footage of that particular scene. All these clips from the commentary can also be accessed directly with your remote control. Simply go directly to titles 19 - 32 and you'll get to see these clips. Please consult your player's user manual how to directly access titles on a DVD, as this is handled differently on each DVD player

    [bold]The Beach[/bold]
    From the disc's main menu go to the 'Features' submenu and there select the 'Cast & Crew' menu entry. In this section, choose actor Robert Carlyle to bring up his biographical information. Once you see this screen, press the right arrow key on your remote control and you will highlight the picture on the left of his head. Press 'Enter' now and you will get to see a trailer for 'The Full Monty,' another movie in which the actor appeared.

    [bold]A Beautiful Mind[/bold]
    Behind the scenes, Outtake, Trailer This is very easy to find but still a nice little extra. On the second disc select bonus materials from the main menu. Go to the second page and select Now Showing. The following movies will be pictured APOLLO 13, THE FAMILY MAN, K-PAX and PATCH ADAMS. Underneath each are a film icon and a disc icon. Select the film icon to view trailers, select the disc icon for either behind the scenes or an outtake.

    [bold]Bedazzeled[/bold]
    From the disc's main menu, go to 'Special Features' , then select 'more' to get to the second page of the special features. Press the right arrow, and a 'little devil' will appear on Elizabeth Hurley's shoulder. Press enter or Play, and the deleted scene will play. The scene has some bad language, sexuality, and drugs featured in the scene, so don't let the little kiddies watch.

    [bold]Behind enemy Lines[/bold]
    Extra Footage Access The Egg From the main menu, go to the special features menu, then select the 'pre-vis ejection sequence'. From the 'pre-vis' menu, press up. This should highlight one of the stars of the flag. Press enter to watch a short comment from the director to the studio, and a hidden take.

    [bold]Billy Madison[/bold]
    'Billy Madison' contains trailers to 'Happy Gilmore' and 'Bulletproof'. You can find them if you go to Adam Sandler’s filmographie in the 'Cast & Crew Bio' section.

    [bold]Bring It On[/bold]
    Hidden sequence At the main menu, select the "Languages" option. Press Right to highlight the megaphone under Kirsten Dunst. Press Enter to view a hidden sequence. Go to the extras menu and click on the director's commentary option when it's switched onto the off option. Now navigate left and you'll be treated to a very brief clip of the director Peyton Reed saying "Hey, you found it!" Extended Car Wash Scene Enter the "Extras" section. Then highlight "Make up & Wardrobe Tests" and press left. This will highlight a car. Then press Enter ans see the same easteregg like on RC 1. Photo Gallery Go into the special features screen and goto the "more" screen you will see a picture of Kirsten Dunst and Gabrielle Union. If you now click on your left button a tattoo "RCH" will appear on Kirsten Dunst's arm. Clicking Enter/OK on this will take you to a mini-gallery of pictures

    [bold]Cabin Fever[/bold]
    The first one is the obligatory trailer potpourri that can be accessed by highlighting the Lions Gate logo on the Main Menu and pressing 'Enter.' The reel is closed out by director Eli Roth coming on screen, congratulating you on finding the Easter Egg. The DVD also contains a series of interesting menu time-outs that you can find in the 'Scene Selections.' Simply go there from the Main Menu and don’t do anything. Just wait until the menu has looped a few times. Eventually the party-obsessed cop will show up and treat you to a brief clip. Try various of the Scene Selection pages for different clips, and if you pay attention to them you will realize that these clips actually create a small story. And another Easter Egg can be found on the disc, trickier than the other ones. Simply watch the movie and during the hospital scene you will see a man in a rabbit costume on the screen. Press the 'Enter' key during that scene and you will have the chance to see a very special hidden feature. Director Eli Roth first congratulates you for finding the Easter Egg and then treats you to some deleted footage involving the original dog (who couldn't act) as well as some footage of Eli having difficulty with the dog they did use.

    [bold]Cats & Dogs[/bold]
    When you start up the disc, select the 'Cats' menu layout and then go to the 'Special Features.' Keep pressing the 'Down' arrow key until a spiked toy is highlighted on the screen. This will give you access to Mr. Tinkles’ screen tests for various infamous films. Now, go to the second page of the 'Special Features' and highlight the Cat Headquarters logo at the bottom of the screen. This will give you the chance to see clips from the movie, starring the cat. Now, start up the disc again, but this time, select the 'Dogs' menu layout. Go to the 'Special Features' and keep pressing the 'Down' arrow key until a messenger tube is highlighted on the screen in order to see some concept art. On the second page of the 'Special Features,' go all the way to the bottom to highlight the Dog Headquarters logo and you will get the chance to see clips from the movie, starring the dog. Also, don’t forget to play the game that can be found on the disc’s main menu in either layout schemes. If you manage to answer all three question correctly you will be taken to the respective headquarter. If you fail, your intrusion will not go unnoticed.

    OK you you are ever bored check them out and if you need more I have them.. :)
