    one of the major features of DVD is of course the chat track i'm must have 100's of them but i've not listened to that many. ones i've enjoyed:

    all the LOTR's ones (Cast, Director, writer) very informative.
    Goodfellas - cop and crook - genius track just full of info.

    but my fav is DOG SOLIDERS. i've watch/listened to it three times - basically the whole cast sit round a telly with a large crate of beer and get drunk and talk about the film - really really funny :D

    so what are your fav's and why?

    The cast and crew commentary track on Mallrats is my favourite, still makes me laugh out loud at certain parts of it.

    beat me to it, it's a bit naughty but Dyer and Love are absolutely loonys and the commentary is superb :thumbsup:

    Another favourite is the cast interviews from SHOOTERS by Dan Reed.

    This is a brilliant insight into a film about the Liverpool underworld, mostly improvised, by some Liverpool gangsters :smashin:

    Ridley Scott waxing lyrical about Alien - so good I've played that one more than once.

    Dale Dye is great on the Platoon voice-over.

    But the pits has to be Zack Snyder on Dawn of the Dead. How did that f**kwit get a job? "See this guy over here? He's a rock star! And see that guy over there? He's a real f**kin rock star, man!" How insightful.

    Is it a bit like inviting a celebrity round to watch their own movie a bit like Quinten Tarratino popping round to watch Plup Fiction :rolleyes:

    The Brian and Stewie track on "Family Guy: The Freakin' Sweet Collection" - I had the boxsets already, but that was so worth it for that track. Yes it's short, but it's SO funny.

    The Thing with John Carpenter and Kurt Russell.( including sound effects of beer getting drunk and cigarrettes being lit)

    C.H.U.D. director and cast laughing at how terrible the film is!
    director: 'This is the best bit in the movie" [a pigeon flys up from the pavement in front of a streetsweeper in the opening credits]

    If the commentary track has subtitles - try killing 2 birds with one stone! Watch the film with the commentary subtitles on. Any one else a fan of Triva tracks? I like the ones on Back to the Future/Die Hard/Hitch Hikers and The Trek Movies.

    One great commentary track is the one with the director and Paul Bettany on "A Knights tale".

    Actually, the Pulp Fiction sound track is pretty good and very enlightening.

    Not listened to it yet but apperently the 'Kings' track on Bubba Ho-Tep is funny.

    Havent listened to that many, but the extended lord of the rings were probably the most informative.

    I don't tend to watch these as I barely watch films at all these days let alone all of the extras following some rather bad commentary experiences when I was first buying DVDs.

    Batman: The Movie and The Evil Dead Trilogy are very entertaining though. Sounds like I'm going to have to try the Dog Soldiers, Spinal Tap and Mallrats ones as well. :)

    Another vote for the one on John Carpenters The Thing. You can hear John and Kurt get more and more drunk as the thing goes on :D

    Isn't there one on Shaun Of The Dead with just the zombies or something? Not listened to it but that could be fun (for five minutes!)

    Best & Worst...

    On the upside, can't really say fairer than any of the LOTR trilogy. First, there's obviously four commentaries (Director/Writers, Production Team, Design Team and Cast) with each movie, which obviously alone doesn't make them good, but it does, I think, at least show that there were a LOT of parties willing to make the effort.

    All were entertaining in their own ways, and among the few chat tracks I would actually sit through more than once - the cast were having a good laugh, the crew commentaries showed a group of people who were obviously very appreciative anyone would even want to hear their side of things, and I thought the Peter Jackson/Fran Walsh/Phillipa Boyens track was very self-deprecating, which is a real fresh breath in the "commentaries world" - the vast majority are entirely too self-aggrandizing. I also thought they made a really fair effort to explain as much as possible why they were deviating from the book at the points it happened - I would hope perhaps that some who have criticized the movies for the departures would listen to these and understand why, even if they ultimately still don't agree with it.

    Worst ones - I don't know what it is, but Tom Clancy adaptations seem to be cursed.

    First, it took years for a decent version of The Hunt for Red October to appear on DVD (the original transfer was one of the earliest DVDs and featured absolutely appalling transfers of both video and audio). However, the director's commentary for THFRO is just dire. Did McTiernan swallow a bottle of sleeping pills before it? The man sounds totally depressed, uninterested, and can barely remember the details of the movie. He sounds like he wants to be somewhere else altogether and, if anything, almost embarrassed to be there - God knows, there's some movies where the directors should spend the entire two hours apologizing for the abomination we're being forced to watch, but THFRO isn't one of them.

    Another total horror is The Sum of All Fears, which suffers mainly from having Clancy himself present. There's a guy who REALLY doesn't want to be there - obviously they threw enough money at him to turn up, but he sure isn't intending making any effort to do any more than he has to. In fact, all he seems to do is pick faults as to where the movie is unfaithful to his precious book. Doesn't help either that he's an arrogant and highly dislikable a$shole. Know what Tom? First, the book itself wasn't all that great in the first place, and second, if you didn't like the movie, maybe you should have just done the honorable thing, told the studio you didn't care for it, and told them to keep the cash. Instead, you took the money anyway (on top of the royalties you already had for the movie itself) and spent the time spoiling it even further for the fans who made you a millionaire in the first place, you ungrateful pr1ck. You know, the fans - the people who DIDN'T get paid a fortune to sit through it.

    I second Spinal Tap. they do it in character and it's even funnier than the film.

    Will definitely check out the Dog Soldies one. Sounds good.
