I haven't listened to any of the ROTK commentaries. [In reply to] Can't Post

The first thing I did when I got the ROTK EE was to scan through and look at the new scenes, and they were kinda disappointing so that I didn't bother to watch the movie all the way through until a couple years ago. And I've just never gone back to listen to the commentaries since then.

The commentaries to FOTR and TTT I really enjoyed, though. At least, the director and the technical teams. The cast commentaries were novelties but they didn't really add anything to the movie. Merry and Pippin weren't as funny as they thought they were, and I kept wanting to tell Sam to shut up and let Frodo talk for a change. :P

The production team commentaries [In reply to] Can't Post

I haven't listened to the editor/producer/production team commentaries. I really and truly feel bad about it because they certainly deserve all kinds of credit. But I tried listening once on one of the videos, but most of what they said that was of interest had been covered by PJ in his commentaries. Some day I'll try again. I believe all those behind the scene people deserve their say. Maybe their comments should have been more artfully edited in with one of the other commentary tracks where pertinent.

I enjoyed listening to Fran Walsh and Phillipa Boyens the most. They gave real insight into how they went about crafting the story; deciding what to keep in, leave out or change, and why. I thought that was interesting. PJ was a bit repetitive with details about green screen shots, etc.

I think I've hear them all [In reply to] Can't Post

When the DVD's first came out (all those years ago) they were on non-stop until every piece of video, commentary, shot and information was in my head Sly

Mr. Eruvande and I watched all the extras right when we got the dvds. [In reply to] Can't Post

But not since then. I don't think he listened to the commentaries at all, but I know I did. Clearly I'm married to a NARF. Tongue

I haven't listened to any of them... [In reply to] Can't Post

I have hearing problems so I rely on closed-captioning a lot, and since they're not supplied with the DVD, then I'm out of luck... Frown

Not that it doesn't make for some interesting moments while watching the movies. For example, at Helm's Deep, when Gimli says "The sun is rising", I heard "Your son is rising." I kept looking for Theodred to do a Lazarus-type entrance. Laugh And not to mention what I thought I heard one of the Uruk-hai cry out as he fell from a ladder... what a potty mouth! Evil

I have heard them all, but it's been so long ago I've forgotten every word. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll have to do like gramma does, and put them on a tape to listen to when I'm doing something else.

I've heard all of the FOTR commentaries [In reply to] Can't Post

And hardly any of the ROTK commentaries. I always meant to get around to them, but the extended ROTK is just such a long movie!

Planning on finishing them... [In reply to] Can't Post

I've heard all but the technical departments on The Two Towers and the Production Team on Return of the King. All are fascinating listens. The cast in particular, if only for Dom and Billy. In stitches so much with them.

I've heard all [In reply to] Can't Post

and with heard I mean heard.
I usually put them on while I'm doing cross stitch. I can not really watch movies than, but I can listen. So that is why I heard them all.
I like director the best. Cast and crew are just fun. The others are informative. But as somebody said before, PJ covered most of that in his commentary.

There are 2 I haven't listened to yet... [In reply to] Can't Post

The RotK Producers and Editors & Production Design. I've done this on purpose. I've put all of the eedvd commentaries onto cassette tapes and listen to them when I go for my walks... but I've held off listening to these only because I can't bear to have it end. I'm saving these for when I need a fix of something... one last new thing... to discover from the films. It's coming up soon, though. The close we get to The Hobbit hitting theatres, the more I'm needing that fix :)
