    I do, I find myself more and more disappointed when one isn't included on a disk.

    Which are your favorites? I'm getting ready to watch Dogma

    Steven Soderbergh is the best at commentaries. You can tell he thoroughly prepared and is really entertaining. The John Milius/Arnold Schwarzenegger commentary for Conan The Barbarian is one of my personal favorites. They're both drunk and Arnold brags about how much he got laid during filming. There should be an Academy Award category for commentaries.

    Sex Lies and Videotape has been playing on one of the movie stations for the past week or so, I would be very interested in that commentary if there were one

    I suppose it's the one advantage to not downloading movies

    As much as a movie nut as I am, I own very few films, Dogma is one of them

    Ido but it has to be a classic movie or just something where I wanted to see how certain things were done. I really wish streaming sites like netflix and stuff would add the feature to there things because to be honest I really do not even buy dvds as much anymore

    Nope. I watch movies to be somewhat entertained for an hour to 2 hours. I couldn't give 2 shits why a character was portrayed one way or another. If you're suppoesed to be funny then be funny. If you're supposed to be dramatic then be dramatic. End of story.

    I get that, there are some movies that I've watched multiple times, and after awhile I become curious as to how the movie was made, what went into the process. Why certain decisions were made. I know it's not for everyone.

    Same here, depends on the movie especially the good CG ones. I think the last one I watched was Avatars and it was pretty interesting how they did all that shit.

    Spinal Tap is a MUST listen. :jj: They recorded the commentary in character, so it's literally a complete second movie.

    Goonies has a great cast commentary, as well as the 3 or 4 different ones on the extended LOTR versions.

    I really like the Blu ray "In Movie Experience" commentaries as well. Here's a shitty video example of what it's like. The newer ones are much better and much more entertaining by the way.
