Barry begins the commentary well enough and the information he gives is very much from a technical standpoint.You do feel as if you have learned something after listening to him.
However, the downside is that he does tend to stop talking and you feel as if there is something happening onscreen which deserves a good explanation. These silences do grate after a while and sometimes you wish he would just SPEAK or COUGH or do something to let you know that he's still with us.

This commentary is frustrating and not just from the short bursts of information. Within those short bursts are often brief thoughts that are not extrapolated on, and are exasperatingly unexplained. A missed opportunity. My impression of these three commentaries is if they had been edited into one it would have been a doozy (ie. very good). 4/10

This commentary is frustrating to listen to. It starts and stops too often and feels disjointed, arbitrary and incomplete. There are great moments that make it feel more frustrating because you can't write it off so easily and just stop listening. Instead it ends up being a form of torture for those who love good commentary.

Baz hasn't seen the movie in a while, so he watches it and talks sometimes.
