Do you watch the extra features, like alternate endings, director's commentary or bloopers? Do you ever search out "Easter Eggs" (special stuff you can find if you know what button to press)? What is your favorite added feature?

I don't watch a lot of the features, but do like some. Deleted scenes, alternate endings and bloopers are my favorite things to watch. Sometimes "The making of..." is interesting, too.

I have searched out Easter Eggs, but not often. Most of the ones I've seen aren't worth the bother of finding them.

(If you want to try to find some EE's in your DVDs, http://www.eggheaven2000.com/DVD_Films can steer you in the right direction)

I'm with you, I like the deleted scenes, alternate endings, and bloopers and usually watch those. I don't care about the way the special effects are made. If it is based on a true story I like to see interviews with the "real" people. I had no idea there was such a thing as Easter Eggs! I'll have to check that out sometime!

I found one (an easter egg) on the extended version of LOTR, installments 1 and 2 (and probably 3, but I don't have that one - yet!). They are pretty funny. One is a spoof of the Council of Elron and the other is Gollum accepting an award.

Here's what you do (if I remember correctly): On the first disc (of either installment), go to Scene Selection, then highlight the last scene on the disc (pressing "up" is faster than scrolling through all the scenes). Press the "Down" arrow and a ring at the bottom will be highlighted. Select that and you should be there!
