This is perhaps John Lasseter's best commentary so far I think, possibly because this film was personal to him for a series of reasons he outlines in the track. There is nary a dead patch and the track is stuffed with a load of information, from inspiration, his collaborators to story and character. Surprisingly, the track is relatively free of technical speak but I guess that is what the other commentary is for! This is exceptional stuff in every regard.

Sadly this one didn't get a 10 rating from me just for having been subject to some sensible editing that stained the final result with a little bit of disjoint and repetition. Other than that, as one of the first Blu-ray exclusive commentaries this one not only delivers splendidly content-wise but also pulls off the "commentary gimmick" quite nicely. Instead of the stupid sillouettes (Ghostbusters) or the pointless "magic pen" (Men in Black 1 and R.V.), somebody came up with nice and non-intrusive visual attachments that pop-up on screen to illustrate or exemplify a reference made by Lasseter. Regarding the content itself, that uncommon comprehensive account of the movie's inception and making from its very core.

Worlds better than the technical commentary for The Incredibles - which I gave up early on because it was two dudes chatting in some unitelligible lingo - but too story and scene-oriented to give a real view of how a Pixar movie gets made. Anyway there's some great information and again the "attached photo" commentary gimmick worked for it.
