Does Soderbergh ever deliver a bad commentary track? I think not. This time with writer Ted Griffin, the two go pound for pound, wit for wit, during this amusing track. Sometimes itís hard to tell if whatís being said is truth, or dry farce, but who cares. Soderbergh makes commentary listening fun, which is consistently hard to do.

Ditto the previous reviewer. Could seem to sense some animosity between the two or was it just play? Kinda hard to read, but there is a bunch of good detail in here anyway. I liked that Soderbergh would rewatch the whole movie over and over while editing and I also liked that he would read the script daily and really immerse himself in it.

Damon and Garcia are recorded together and Pitt is separate, but it's awkwardly edited to try and make it sound like they are together. Matt and Andy have a good rapoport though. They talk about the great tracking shots and always refer to Soderbergh the cameraman as Peter Andrews, often not acknowledging they are the same person. They also talk about how well Soderbergh shows off his locations such as the subtle tracking shot which reveals the fake vault and then the real Vegas location. They also talk about Garcia's walk that he developed for the character, the costumes, cracking up with Carl Reiner, Clooney as natural leader, Damon growing up with Affleck amd Scott Caan being nothing like his dad :)

Pretty dull. All they do is watch the film and say nothing. When they do say something, they talk about how great this scene is and how great this performance is. Brad makes fun of George Clooney.

I think Matt says "Guys, this isn't a good commentary." in the middle of it.
