Description

The Easter Egg (hidden information normally put in a program for the amusement of friends) is nothing new to computer software, and once you've come across them on a DVD you'll be looking for them on every disc you've got. Film companies are now wising up to the amount of joy that can be had from the egg hunt, and are more regularly slipping in a few snippets of information and letting us root around for it. Sample text (edited): Daredevil (2 Disc Special Edition) Although he's probably more famous for his girlfriends (Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez) than his career, Ben Affleck does occasionally make enjoyable movies like this fun - if thinly plotted - adventure based on the comic book of the same name. He stars as Matt Murdock, a lawyer blinded by some toxic goo as a child who discovers his other senses are heightened to the point that he can be a bit of a superhero, taking revenge on the evil and saving the helpless when he isn't doing important things with his legal briefs. Insert Disc 2. Select 'The Film' from the main menu and press ENTER. Select 'Beyond Hell's Kitchen: The Making Of Daredevil' and press ENTER.Highlight 'Access Enhanced Viewing Mode' and then press the LEFT arrow on your remote. This will reveal a pair of crossed knives (Sais, like the ones used by Electra in the film). Press ENTER. A five minute collection of gaffes and outtakes featuring the film's stars (Ben Affleck, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Garner, Jon Favreau) will now play. And it's a scream - from Ben and Jennifer trying to pull off a fight stunt to Colin Farrell landing a kiss on a surprised female costar. * * * *show more
