In the beginning....

Welcome to "Commentary Commentary"!

mission statement: to review DVD commentary tracks

rating system: A+ to F, just like high school, only without all the atomic wedgies

next movie to be reviewed: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

other planned movies: (in no particular order) Aliens, The Office (U.S. version), Sideways, Kissing Jessica Stein, The 40 Year Old Virgin

how it will work: The plan is to rate the commentary based on the following criteria:
  1. informative - Does the commentary teach you anything interesting? Does it further your understanding of the movie making process at all? Do they have nifty facts to share?
  2. entertaining - Pretty self-explanatory. Will it keep you on the edge of your seat or will it put you to sleep?
  3. awesome-icity level - Is it worth listening to? Is it for fanboys only or for the general public?

Okay, that's all. Look for the Star Trek IV review by next week, hopefully. Yes, I do take requests, so if there's a commentary track out there that you're dying to see reviewed, let me know. Mind you, the score of the DVD will be independent of the actual quality of the movie the commentary accompanies. For example, Dungeons and Dragons was a steaming pile of crap that deserves an F rating. However, if the commentary is amusing and/or informative, I might give the DVD an A-. See ya all later.
