Frank commentaries

What are some commentaries that hold nothing back? Commentaries that surprisingly spill a lot of dirt?

apparently the James Bond Criterion Laserdisc commentaries...since they were pulled because of it. There was some mention of trying to get them podcast a while back but we never got it organized.

Yeah, a No Holds Barred commentary would be great! Hulk Hogan, Tiny "Zeus" Lester, Vince McMahon! Hopefully it would come on a DVD.

Freddy Got Fingered. He hardly talks about the film itself then rants about critics calling himugly. He seems very self conscious about everything, still funny, but not what I expected from Tom Green.

If I can drag this thread kicking and screaming back on topic, I would say Steven Soderbergh's "The Limey" is a good one.

I heard that in the commentary in the 80's "classic" Private Lessons, the actors and the director pretty much blast the movie throughout the whole deal.

Armageddon:CC Ben Affleck just tears the movie down throughout the whole time he is on the commentary. Very funny stuff.

Hunter S. Thompson's commentary on the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: CC DVD is pretty crazy. One minute he talks like he likes the movie, but then the next minute he's like "TERRY GILLIAM RUINED MY MOVIE!!!!! HE'S TURNED MY LIFE INTO A CARTOON!!!" Then he just kind of makes some weird noises for a while, and talks about how gay Tobey Maguire is.

I haven't heard them but apparently Uwe Boll will blame anyone and everything in his commentaries.

The "Cleopatra" commentary seems to hold little back, particularly when the Mankewitz' are at the mic.

Otherwise, a lot of older films withh historian commentary sound more "no holds barred" than most any new film with a forced director and/or actor commentary, where everyone is still working and therefore careful not to step on any toes or burn any bridges. Even older studio films, like certain WB film noir titles and whatnot, pull significantly fewer punches.

This is a good topic - I'll try to think up more...

Not only that, Smith and crew happen to point the finger at specific actors who were terrible to work with. Same applies to the Dogma commentary. On another note, their commentary for the Clerks: Animated Series discs also poke a lot of "hatred" for ABC and the Mouse House in general.

HOUSE OF THE DEAD has a solo commentary with Mark Altman, the writer of the script (which is NOT what ended up on the screen). He tries to keep it classy by never flat out saying "Uwe Boll is the reason this movie sucked!!!"...he keeps saying "Uwe had a very...strong vision for the film...much different than what we realized when we hired him...He definitely had a strong vision, and I have to admire that...but...."

He laughs at quite a few points through the commentary, and even says "Ugh...this is so embarrasing" at one point.

There is one scene which is so silly that he says "I will forever regret not being on set this day, because I never would have let them film this..."

I felt sorry for the guy after listening to it.

"Deathstalker II" has a commentary by the director, the star, and the female villain. The three of them were paid some money to watch the movie and reminise, and they have a great time. "We had only three stunt men. That's Bob getting killed. That's Bob again. That's why the enemy soldiers all wear masks." The director points out car in the background. He gets exasperated by other footage that was spliced into his movie. "God this is boring." During a fight scene he says "We tried to shoehorn every fight cliche we could think of into this scene. Oh, there's the knife throw!"

When the evil princess is being extra bitchy, they all say that she wasn't acting.

Kurt Wimmer's commentary on Equilibrium was very honest. He starts out the commentary by letting everybody listening know about all the trash-talking he got regarding the other movies he ripped off, for example The Matrix. He also talks about how tiny the movie's budget was, which puts things in perspective.

Abel Ferrara tends to walk a thin line.

Yeah, I know he hated working with Linda Fiorentino, so I don't doubt that he pokes at her during the Dogma commentary.

Commentaries

Jack Sholder's commentary on The Hidden.

Totally honest, reveals the drawbacks of shooting low budget movies, lays into some of the bit part actors in a you-get-what-you-pay-for fashion, and obviously did not hit it off with Michael Nouri at all.

One of my all time favorite commentaries.
