Review 1

All five (each of these eggs previously appeared on SD DVD editions of the film, although the path to finding them here is entirely different) can be found on "Disc 2", via a special easter egg mini-menu. To access it, go to the second page of bonus features (by clicking the "More" option). Highlight "Good luck", then press "Right", "Up", "Up" on your remote. The skull's eyes (at the top of the screen) will light up - then hit "Enter". This is will bring up a full screen of the Jolly Roger logo. From this screen, you will be able access all of the following Easter Eggs:

1) With "Back" highlighted, move "Left" "Left". The skull's eyes light up with flame. Click "Enter" to see a short interview with Keith Richards (48 sec).

2) Starting with "Back" highlighted, move "Left" "Left" but this time do not press "Enter". Instead, press "Up" and then "Right" and watch for the medallion on the bandana to light up. Then press "Enter" to see a 3D animatic of a scene from the film (6 min)

3) Follow instructions for Egg 2 above, but instead of hitting "Enter" hit "Up" "Up" "Left". The left sword handle will light up. Press "Enter" to see a short Japanese trailer for the movie (37 sec).

4) Follow instructions for Egg 3 above, but after the left sword handle lights up, don't hit "Enter." Instead, press "Left" four times, and a replica of the Aztec medallion will appear on the map. Press "Enter" here to see a time-lapse construction video of a cave (3 min).

5) Follow the sequence for Egg 4 above, but instead of hitting "Enter" at the end of the sequence, press "Left" "Left" "Down". The "N" on the map will light up. Press "Enter" to listen to the "Pirate Radio," which seems to be an original Radio ad for the ride at Disneyland (1 min).
