This one's best left for Christopher Lee fans - although he has no shortage of anything to say, it falls into two distinct camps: (1) an explanation of what is "probably" happening on screen - as Lee hasn't seen the film in decades and has no audio on his viewing he's most likely assuming that we don't either, even though you'd think he'd assume anyone listening to the commentary had watched the film first! (2) discussions of opinion that come across as if he were a schoolteacher delivering a lesson. It doesn't help that the moderator - who sounds awfully young/green - spends a lot of time letting Lee get off track and can only comment with "uh huh" or laugh at his jokes. Still, given that Lee has since passed on, it's valuable to have anything on record delivered in his rich, unmistakable timbre.
