Comments on Commentaries

Postby evolvingsensblty on Thu Aug 25, 2005 5:25 am

Anyone listen to commentaries on DVD's? Most of the commentaries I've heard are tedious or forgettable. I'd like to hear about good, weird, or "so bad they are good" commentaries. Please, please, tell me Dino Delaurentis has done some commentaries. Any Arnold Schwarzenegger commentaries are in the "so bad it's good" category. The Spinal Tap comments were fun because they do them in character. The Jack Black and R. Linklater commentary for School of Rock was pretty good.
I think the worst I've heard is the Farrelly Bros. All they do is point out friends and relatives in the background playing extras.

I thought Irvin Kershner on TESB sucked pretty bad...."and here's where Luke uses the force to get his lightsaber" yeah, no shit. All through the movie too, sounding like fucking Bullwinkle all the while... "and here's where Han gets frozen in carbonite" Such a pity

DEADWOOD. Season 1. Episode 12. "Sold Under Sin".

Just Ian McShane and Timothy Olyphant.

Best I've ever heard. Ian is a riot (impressions, attitude, timing) and Olyphant plays off of him extremely well.

Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

Are those Star Wars commentaries done in a group, or were they recorded individually and edited together? I'd like to hear Carrie Fisher's comments, but I don't think I could listen to Lawrence Kasdan for too long. His voice is...umm...unique.
His son Jake sounds just like him. He does a weird commentary for Orange County with the screenwriter Mike White. Jake rambles on and on while White grunts and mumbles occasionally. He sounds bored/stoned/confused/irritated. I think he was just there to keep Kasdan honest.

It is definitely time. I wasn't a fan of Terminator 3 until I watched it with his comments.

The Fight Club commentary is really good although HBC was spliced in to it and you can tell.

Seven SE has great commentaries by film historians and the like.

Oh and Dog Soldiers has the director and 45 of the cast getting pissed and taking the piss through the whole things it's class

I can't get into listening to commentaries.
it annoys the crap out of me. I'm trying to watch the damn movie! Shut up!
although i do remember listening to Arnold's commentary on Conan (i can't remember iffa the Dino was in it) and laughing my ass off. He obviously hadn't watched the movie in decades, and his comments were rediculous.

Chuck Palahniuk does one for Fight Club too. I can't think of any other authors who have done a commentary for a movie based on their book. John Irving does one for Cider House, but he also wrote the script.

I liked Mike Nichols and Steven Soderbergh on Catch 22. Roger Ebert sounds like he's on speed at the start of Citizen Kane, rushing through it with too much information. Peter Bogdanovich commentary track is more relaxed and he does some funny impersonations.

If I've seen a movie before I rent/buy it, the first thing I'll do is listen to the commentaries. Best part of the DVD.

All the LotR commentaries are good, although Phylippa gets fucking annoying talking about how in need of change all of Tolkien's work was. ("Tolkien had no character arc for Faramir so we had to fix that...") The Hulk one was fascinating. I just listened to The Day The Earth Stood Still commentary with Bob Wise and Nick Meyer and that was damn good.

The commentary on "Cannibal the Musical" is pretty amusing. Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and others in the cast get progressively drunk and increasingly abusive as the movie goes on. The commentary is probably more interesting than the movie.

I just listened to the "Conan" commentary a couple weeks ago, and my friend and I decided it would make for a brilliant drinking game.

Every time Milius makes a comment and Arnold responds with "Yeah," "I know," "Exactly," or some other affirmation despite the fact that he clearly has no idea what Milius is talking about, take a drink.

When Arnold mentions how this is the part where he "punched that horse" despite the fact that it's a camel and it wont happen for 5-10 minutes, take a shot.

Every time they point out exactly what is happening/about to happen, drink.

Every time Milius praises his own script, drink.

Every time Milius says the word "valkyrie," take a shot.

Every time they talk about an actress' breasts or make some other uncomfortable sexual comment, drink.

Every time Milius snorts, sniffles, or otherwise indicates that he has severe nasal blockage, take a shot of something hard. (This bugged the fuck out of me. Seriously John, pause the commentary, go blow your goddamn nose, take some Robitussin, do SOMETHING, I really don't need those noises in my head).

Good luck. You'll probably be piss-drunk inside 30 minutes.

See also Arnie's comments about the female Terminator on the T3 DVD. Milius needs to do a commentary for Apocalypse Now and Red Dawn. That would be a comedy goldmine.

One of my favourites. The Simpsons DVDs have great commentaries as well. The "Drugs" episode of Brass Eye features a bunch of street drinkers and drug addicts who Morris paid to watch the show and rant.

Didn't Harry do a commentary for that special Korean Oldboy boxset? Anyone heard it?

The American Pie commentary is pretty entertaining. Adam Herz talks about growing up in Michigan and Eddie Kaye Thomas keeps pointing out the hot chicks.

"Oh, she is so hot."
"Eddie, please."
"Oh, sorry. Dude, she is so hot."
"Eddie! This is the DVD, this is going to be around forever."
"Oh, right. Sorry. Man, she is so hot."
"Eddie!"

Paraphrased, but pretty accurate.

Bruce Campbell on the Evil Dead 2 commentary is worth the price of the disc and more. Any time Sam is reluctant to tell a story Bruce has no problem jumping in and embarassing everyone. There's even a story about the flower logo of the releasing company that Dino set up to put the movie out.

For a good time check out the actor commentary on the 2-disc version of Boogie Nights. PTA watched the movie with Wahlberg, Guzman, and a bunch of others and they all riff on it like crazy. I think Guzman was high. You can even hear Fiona Apple in the background a few times. The different viewings are spliced together but its still pretty entertaining.

I have a DVD for The Tattoo Connection (A 70s Jim Kelly kung fu film) and the comnmentary is by Luke Y Thompson and Greg Weinkauf. The guy Luke Y Thompson sounds like Butthead. Its pretty annoying, but funny in parts too. Its like the equivalent of an audio commentary by 2 AICN Talkbackers.

From TheDigitalBits:
Finally this morning (our last news item), there's confirmation from 20th Century Fox and Lucasfilm that the release of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, certain to be one of the biggest sellers of the year, will be DVD only. There will be no VHS version released.


So VHS is truly dead?

I recommend listening to Guillermo del Toro's commentaries. Well, I mean, I'm sort of addicted to those things, so you might not find them interesting, but I don't know. BLADE II commentaries were pretty entertaining; David Goyer's impression of Guillermo was hilarious ("Look, Davey Goyer! Look at all the vaginas!") and you can always count on del Toro to provide some technical insight into the production, if that's your thing.

Resident Evil

Postby Pissed-Off Crawdad on Mon Aug 29, 2005 7:54 pm

The commentary for Resident Evil with Milla Jovivich, Michelle Rodriguez, and Paul Anderson is actually very funny. You can tell that Anderson is trying to be serious about the movie, while Jovivich keeps making comments about how one of the actors loved yogurt (she screams "yogurt!" with Rodriguez whenever he appears from that point on), and towards the end, she makes an announcement that went something like "Oooh, look, here comes my crotch shot!" Yeah, it's really bad stuff, and I think it's Milla's first (and maybe last) commentary. But it made me laugh.

Sean Of The Dead's commentary is sparkling... "Isle of Man"... funny... I'm looking for recommendations so I can "listen" to them whilst working. Alien's one is rather nice, particularly when Ridley Scott is at it and Dan O'Bannon seems to seethe about choices within the movie. Some of it is a little dry... a little too much actorly praise from the 'Weaver...

... what I love is the end where Sigourney and Ridley start discussing ideas about Alien 5 and waxing lyrical about possibility and science. Ridley and Sigourney should go back and create an Alien 5 bringing the story to its roots and wrestle the franchise back into the realms of greatness it deserves before Fox rapes it any more.

I just watched two Raging bUll commentaries, one with Scorsese and then another with La Motta, Schrader, and Marik Martin. Scorsese's was good but i didnt really liek the writers because it was almost all La Motta andI would have liked to hear more from Schrader.
some other ones I like: the El Mariachi ones, very helpful for aspiring filmmakers
Sin City- I like the frank miller and rodriguez one best but the tarantino, willis and rodriguez one was good also.
From Dusk Till Dawn- QT and Rodriguez
Shaun of the Dead
Pirates of the Carribean- I liked the writers one.
LOTR
Serenity was pretty good

Fight Club is a favorite commentary of mine, but HBC is annoying. She just drags on with no direction, talking 15 minutes about doing a american accent. Dude wheres my car? commentary is pretty funny. They were drinking beer while taping so the stories come flowing out. I forget who it was, but it went something like this.

Ashton:Dude, didnt you f that girl?
Sean: No man that wasnt me.

Sean leaves the room to pee.

Ashton:Dude, he totally did.

The worst cast commentary Ive heard besides Spiderman 1 would be the Anchorman track. Will Ferrell does not bring the funny. Just try and watch 20 minutes, go on.

Blood Simple has a fake comentary written by the Coen brothers but spoken by some actor. Its performed in the style of the pretentious film scholar commentaries you sometimes hear on classic film dvds where the creators are either dead or unavailable. Its strange and hilarious although I don't remember if I made it through the whole thing( I don't listen to the commentary tracks like I used to before I got married, but its a small sacrifice).

Michael Jeck's commentary on criterion's "Throne of Blood" disc is quite fascinating.

I actually just saw the Throne of Blood about two weeks ago and yes the commentary was very well done. I saw Ran at about the same time but didn't get achance to listen to the commentary. I had no idea Thompson did a track for Fear and Loathing.I loved the book and I love Gilliam but the movie left me a little cold although depp was pretty amazing as I recall. I should give that one another chance

I gotta say Will Ferrell and Adam Mckay's commentary on Anchorman cracked me up, having almost nothing at all to do with the movie, but just mocking the fact this was the "unrated version" of the dvd, trying to figure out exactly what that meant they could do


"so how about, how about a 'bald man . . . bald man with a beard . . . taking a shit. Can I say that on the un-rated dvd?"
