If you've ever listened to the optional commentary track on a DVD, one of the special features occasionally available, you know that it can sometimes be boring and stupid, and other times, brilliant and entertaining. Well, now there's a site, CommentaryDVD.com, that reviews the commentaries for you, telling you which DVD editions and movies contain the best commentary, and by whom. You can search for commentaries by who is doing it, whether director, actor, historian, critic, whatever, or by movie title. Everyone should listen to a few commentaries, because it really helps you enjoy the movie all over again, like watching it with a friend who knows stuff. My favorite feature of the commentarydvd.com site is the list of commentary innovations.
