The thing about Spikes commentaries is that he is wonderful to listen to, but he is not really that great at it. Itís a lot of just pointing out what is good about the film, like a line here and there, and several times he just watches the movie in silence. Although he is very interesting this track could be cut down to 30 minutes of worth while material. 5/10

This is not that interesting. He wrote both the novel and the script, and usually he just points out what is different in the book. But he does it in a very irritating way, correcting small line changes, saying that originally that place was not meant to be at that location but on another (wow, really?) And he points out that in the book some of the characters are different looking and that Naturelles last name is different. He says at one point that that he was on set, and he said it like he was there all the time, and I can only imagine how annoying that would have been. Write your book, write your screenplay, fine, but after that stay away! 2/10
