Thanks for the input/suggestions.  I have been renaming the files based on
the wiki and have come to the conclusion that the best/easiest thing to do
is to delete the "extras" and just keep the main feature.  They just take up
way too much room and make it difficult to find the movie.  With a few
(maybe one) exceptions I never watch the extras/trailers, so I shouldn't
miss them.
