welcome vivian.

I haven't listened to any of the Peter Jackson commentaries yet but am really looking forward to doing so. I just haven't had the time. I'm glad to hear good things about them, no one really talked about them before. One of my friends here has a copy of the two towers on VHS so I've been soaking that up for the past couple of days.

I just listened to the Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino commentary on From Dusk till Dawn. One of the funniest I've heard for ages. Great DVD too, the Full Tilt Boogie Documentary taking up all of disc 2, definately rivals That Moment.

Quote from: Vivian Darkbloom
And I'd like to finish by saying that Joss Whedon can be quite interesting in his own way (meaning that I'm a huge Buffy/angel fan... A great  WAYYYY underrated show...)


Whedon's commentary track in the Second Season Buffy box set for the "Innocence" episode is better that most feature length commentaries.

I was quite disapointed by Cronenberg on Existenz and Naked Lunch(region 2) but I couldn't hear the one he did for Dead Ringers. And, Im's sorry if I hurt his fans' feelings

For Cecil B. Demented : I really like Cronenberg films, don't get me wrong, I just wanted to say that he's much more interesting during interviews (and on that great book he did with Serge Grunberg, I don't know if it wxwas translated in english...) that he is while sitting in a chair and talking about the philosophical concepts behind eXistenZ and seems to take a nap during the entire last half-hour of Naked Lunch...

My favorite commentaries talk about the production of the movie, how things were done, what things used to be and good stories. I get bored of the ones that discuss the meaning of the film or the emotions of the characters.

Billy Bob Thorton and the Coens on "The Man Who Wasn't There": "Ed's sportin' wood."

Mr. Show commentary: They redub a whole sketch.

This Is Spinal Tap: In-character commentary is hilarious

Space Ghost: Coast to Coast: Not on DVD but one episode of this great show was just an old episode with the creator's moms commenting on it called "Mommentary." It's just a bunch of old women saying "I love my son, but this show...I just don't get it." Hilarious. The creators then did two other commentaries over that commentary. I love that show.

The fake Blood Simple commentary is hilarious, too.

I forgot about Hunter S. Thompson's commentary on Fear and Loathing. Drug-induced hilarity. :(

I just watched "Jackass: the movie" on DVD and listening to the whole gang reflect on their 'jackassness' is quite funny.
