One of the first things you hear is that these two guys wanted so much to do this commentary, so you just know this is going to be fun. From the get-to, this pair is a lot of fun. They never stop talking, providing tons of information and jokes. They talk about basically everything – the script and its changes, the effects, the gore, the characters, stories from the set, and so on and so on and so on – but always keep their sense of humour, throwing joke after joke at you. Mr. Tarantino’s character was actually turned down in the rewrites, while Mr. Clooney’s was given more dialogue. They talk about how Cheech Marin got the three characters, among other things. It’s highly enjoyable, and will definitely make you laugh. These guys are intensely proud of the movie. While watching the movie, it shows, and while listening to the track, it shows. Mr. Rodriguez seems the more relaxed of the two, but then again, the other guy is Quentin Tarantino, so it’s not too hard to seem relaxed. This track with definitely entertain you. If you like the movie, you’ll love the track.

If you can put up with Tarantino's ego and hyper 12-year-old tone of speaking, it's a good listen. Plenty of info about the production of the movie, and no slow parts where nobody's talking. It's amusing how you can hear in Rodriguez's voice what he's thinking: "Dude, calm the hell down."

I thought I would love this more than I did. They are really good together, but not quite up to the standard that they set for themselves on solo-tracks. Very entertaining, but should have been better. 7/10

One of my favourite tracks of all time. Fascinating and fun. It makes me wish Tarrantino would do more commentaries for his own films. Great track, highly recommended.

It makes you wonder why the big T doesn't do track's for his own films? He certainly can talk in great depth about other people's films and here is another example. A bit of an ego trip and therefore loses a few points, but a good commentary track all the same.

This is one of the best commentaries I've ever heard. It's a shame QT doesn't do commentaries for movies he directs or many other movies. Enjoy what you do get. QT is like an excited kid here. Both offer A LOT of information and never stop talking during the entire runtime of the movie. As a result, the commentary is PACKED with information about the production, the writing, the cast, etc.
A must listen.
