DVDcommentaries.co.uk is one of those specialized podcasts that I too rarely talk about. It’s a podcast that provides an alternative audio commentary track that you can run while watching a film, or just listen to while you’re on the go. Unlike many of the official DVD commentaries, that are too often about all the technical junk that nobody except aspiring directors could ever care about, fan commentaries can be extremely compelling listening. A great example of that is this one, from Jan 2010: Curits, Dave, Stu and Tom, a knowledgable set of fans who genuinely love movies, priovide the commentary of Howard Hawks’ The Thing From Another World. It’s well worth listening to if you’re a fan of the film.
Here’s the trailer:
I’ve participated in a similar podcast myself, Hey Want To Watch A Movie?, in which a few folks watch John Carpenter’s The Thing (a remake/re-adaptation of the same story). Check it out HERE.
