Frankly I have never found a commercial DVD that has menus I liked.
Ripping to files always had the great advantage of skipping the
retarded menus with their repetitive audio and annoying effects, but
hey that's just me.

I can see the need for some menuing system - like "watch movie" "watch
trailer" "watch 'the making of'" - but the thought of replicating the
menus the original authors made makes me cross.

It would be nice if myth had a way of grouping together the main movie
with the trailer and all the other DVD/Bluray "extras" - and if the
extras all had nice metadata.

But this is probably getting overly ranty, and dinner needs stirring
so I will go now!
