I sure do love me a good movie commentary. I've never had a huge desire to make movies, yet for some reason, I'm drawn to the sounds of people talking over movies.
I have a need to hear how special effects are done (computer), about the accidents that happen on set (meat puppet fights), and how the writers and directors sound (boring).
They're like a podcast that you can't take with you, a radio show that you can't pay attention to while driving. Movie magic.
I bring this up because the great Josh Davenport has put together a few comic commentaries for RGBros… an idea I may need to steal if my readers suddenly decided to care about that sort of thing. They're freakin' great. I make comics and I learned a bit about how to make comics. Did you know it's possible to draw each strip individually? Weird, right?
Anyway, check it out. I'm not just mentioning this because he mentioned me in his second commentary. I'm doing it out of the goodness of my hea—eh, who am I kidding?!? I did this because he mentioned me.
You know what else I love about DVDs and blu-rays? The fact that old TV shows and movies are being remastered to show detail and quality that were impossible to experience in the past. With modern technology, I can finally enjoy the full density of pixels and acting in the Matrix (No matter how awful the sequels were, I still appreciate the first one).
By random coincidence, Tobey from King of Slackers has remastered the art and logos from the comics that feature Don't Hit Save. If you have a chance, definitely go blow your mind on the new visuals.
I'd write some more, but I've run out of movie/comic references. So if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go listen to the Ryan Reynolds commentary on Deadpool for the third time.
