I'd go with Donnie Darko. Close second would be Re-Animator.
The best commentary track: SUMMER OF FEAR (director & producer). It's great because most directors don't do commentarys for their tv movies (this tv movie was terrific as well!) THE WORST COMMENTARY TRACK EVER: THE EXORCIST. I can't stand when the directors don't give much back story. Just him saying "This is the scene where uh....Linda...."
Gotta go with the Kevin Smith stuff, but picking one favorite is tough. Mallrats, probably.
Best DVD Commentary Ever
Evil Dead 2 hands down, I could not stop laughing!
I can't believe no one has said the Elite commentarys for Night of the Living Dead. I watched both commentarys back to back, great stuff and everyone was there.
All the Evil Dead commentarys are equally as good IMO.
Re: Best DVD Commentary Ever
I agree, that just cracked me up. :lol: I love all of the Bruce and Raimi commentaries as they are funny guys. Evil Dead series aside, I think the Donnie Darko commentary was the most helpful.
i like the following
i spit on your grave- joe bob briggs
driller killer- abel ferrara
Brendan Fraiser in The Ulmaitle Edition The Mummy Dvd.
I really enjoyed Abbott and Costello meets Frankenstein's commentary. Really informative.
Don't forget ...
My vote goes to C.H.U.D. The commentary track is even funnier than the movie.
I listen to the commentary more often than I watch the movie, in fact.
Bruce Campbell on Evil Dead, The Thing, Donnie Darko, Dogma, The Osbournes first season, and Carrot Top on The Rules Of Attraction, I don't care what you guys say, it cracked me up.
"THROWIN A HOT DOG INTO A HALLWAY"
Joe Bob Briggs commentary on I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE is probably my favorite of all time...
The one for TEXAS CHAINSAW is pretty damn good, too... Oh, and Cameron Crowe and Amy Heckerling's commentary on the RIDGEMONT HIGH disc is also highly entertaining.
I liked ReAnimator, Resident Evil.
Hated the Hole, what a boring commentary. (really liked the movie tho)
Re: Don't forget ...
This is one of my favorites as well. It laugh myself sick everytime I listen to it.
Although it is not a commentary, I love love love the "Living in Darkness" documentary on Near Dark as well. Bill and Lance just seem to love the movie so much and they are full of funny stories. This is one of the reasons this is one of my favorite dvd releases.
dude i think the commentary for "donnie darko" almost hurts the movie, the director/writer is so indecisive and timid about his explanations, when you have a movie as open to interpretation as that film, then you either need to talk exclusively about your thoughts and reasons and explain how you feel about the movie, or just talk about the actors and technical shit, his commentary is so half-assed, like when he talks about francis ford copolla telling HIM what HIS movie is about, a line that got cut out of the movie, and richard kelly is like "well, uh, i guess? my movie is about that, yeah, um, maybe?" but whatever jake gyllenhaal is a good actor, but annoying, he kept interrupting the DIRECTOR to say somethin irrevlant.
I like the usual inc Evil Dead etc, But i`m surprised Basket Case hasn`t been mentioned.
Cannibal! The Musical
Your right the CHUD commentary is classic, worth the price of the disk! Like the bit where they realise theyre watching a different version of the movie and Daniel Stern freaks out at his wifes hilarious decapitated head!
In some cases the commentary is better then the movie. Best example: The In Crowd. Mary Lambert's trashy teen thriller might be one of her worst films to date but the audio commentary provided by Susan Ward & Lori Heuring is priceless!
Gotta love those two sexy & smart gals ranting about the film, dates, make up, food, marriage and lots of other stuff
Worth checking out!
