Is this track better than the film? Being ever so slightly let down by this film, this track is one of those rare one's that made me appreciate the film more. While they both talk non-stop I think Pegg has the edge and seems heavily invested in the film especially his character. He talks about everything from his 'uniform' (costume), detailed histories on the music choices, the script structure, writing process and heavily coded nature of this film (and their other films).
They also talk about how many times you can say a certain swear word (always been fascinated by this bizarre censorship restriction), influences as wide ranging as The Young Ones and Brian DePalma and Edgar singles out the DVD commentary on The Last Of Shiela because director Richard Benjamin assumes you have never seen the film!
A great track and I highly recommend their tracks for all their other projects as well. 8.5/10

I almost want to fault the movie for failing to make clear all the neat symmetries, foreshadowing, clever references, and etc., that the commentary points out. It almost makes me want to see the film again. Or at least if I ever do, I'll be on the lookout for lots of things I missed not expecting a film with so much depth.

I liked this track a great deal but feel maybe they could have talked more about the lighting and other technical elements considering the participants involved - it wavered a bit outside those parameters. Still there was a reasonable amount of knowledge gained into film formats, light sources, color choices, lenses. 7/10

Pretty lame. They just make jokes and do impressions. Paddy makes fun of Martin Freeman and does very good DeNiro and New Zealander accents.

But you learn nothing interesting here.
