A good commentary to a bad film.

Natasha talks about how she started modeling, her acting,doing an action role and how she got the scar on her face (from when she was a baby), how she was not meant to be blinking during the scene where she fires a gun (why did they leave it in? This movie doesn't even try) and how she was sick during filming.

They mention how Ice Cube ad-libbed a lot of his lines.

They also talk about drugs and have any of them done any. John admits he smoked weed, Natasha hasn't done any. They also mention how giving exposition is very hard.

Even you hate this film, you have to give this track a listen.

Carpenter cannot give a bad commentary, even on a bad film.
Carpenter and Natasha Henstridge make an interesting commentary combo... lots of information to be had here.

A good lighthearted track. Well worth a listen.

Not a bad track. But that's because it's the usual Carpenter tag team track and they're always good. Not a whole lot of in depth information about a film, but then again - it wouldn't have made the film any better. But the good thing going for it is that it's alive. Rarely are there long silences, and the topics are just fun to listen to. At one point even Carpenter says something like "Ah, it's just great to sit here and bullshit" Check it out on a lazy Sunday.
