We tried to watch the commentary from Waiting For Guffman last night, but it was dreadfully dull. In fact, I highly recommend it to anyone who is currently recording commentary for a DVD and would like a lesson in how not to do it. For everyone else, I say this: it's like watching the movie with interruptions. Honestly, they (Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy) speak during perhaps half of the movie, and most of what they have to say could be found in the credits. "This is Matt Keesler..." No kidding!

So we watched the commentary for The Dead Hate the Living instead. Brilliant! A bunch of kids drinking beer and laughing at their own movie. And they even admit that absolutely everything in the movie is a "tribute" - or, in layman's terms, rip-off - to either a classic horror movie, a director, an actor, a special-effects company, or Tom Savini.
