    I hope I am just missing something, but do I really have to watch the movie a whole secod time in order to see the extras on the first disc? I.e. turn on the green fairy thing and then just sit there and wait for it to pop up, press the enter button and then sit there and wait again?

    I hope there is a simpler way to do this.

    Sadly, yes. But it's still enjoyable. But I admit I wish they would make it convient like Rush Hour 2.

    Both commentary tracks are excellent though, so just fire up the green fairy and watch the movie with one of the commentaries.

    Or just select the appropriate title with the title button on your remote.
    This is from Michael Ds site, I assume it works on the R1 disc as well, although the track numbers may differ...

    Mikael, thanks for the list. I tried to activate the titles but could not get that working. Maybe it is just the R1 version. I cannot believe Fox would release something like this. Did they not have anyone actually testing the disc before releaseing it?

    "Rocky Horror" works the same way; what I did was watch the movie with the lips coming up onscreen and write down the time counter each time they showed up, then went back and watched all the clips. "The Matrix" lets you access each part by title, so there's no need to watch for the bunny rabbit on that one.

    Does anyone have the times where the green fairy pops up? Maybe that would be something for Fox to supply with the disc as they did not want to have a menu on the DVD.
