The latest version of Ogle (http://www.dtek.chalmers.se/groups/dvd/) seems
to work fine for me.  It does rely on a few external libraries, but
everything you need is listed right there on the download page so no
searching around for days to meet the dependencies.  =)

Apparently it's the only Linux DVD player that supports DVD menus, or so
I've heard anyway.
