Article on Audio Commentaries

On a lot of DVDs nowadays, there is something under special features, listed as the feature audio commentary. These run for the length of the film, or in the case of the one for Pirates of the Caribbean - Curse of the Black Pearl, for certain scenes that feature the two actors that are narrating. In this case, Keira Knightley and Jack Davenport.

Audio commentaries range from the mind numbingly boring, Lemony Snicket and a series of Unfortunate Events, The A Team, come to mind, or just lovely and just as entertaining as the film itself, see the list below.

Below is a list of my top eleven favourite audio commentaries, all of them worth listening/watching. If the DVD has more than one commentary, I've listed the commentators by name. If not, I've left it with just the title.

11. Eclipse: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart.
10. The Runaways.
9. The Boat that Rocked.
8. Wimbledon.
7. Two Weeks Notice.
6. Van Helsing: Richard Roxburgh, Shuler Hensley and Will Kemp.
5. Love Actually.
4. Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe: Andrew Adamson, William Moseley, Anna Popplewell, Skandar Keynes and Georgie Henley.
3. Sherlock - Episode Three - The Great Game
2. The Edge of Love.
1. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: The director, producer, Martin Freeman and Bill Nighy.


  1. This quote comes from some of the films listed above in the top eleven.

    "Van Helsing: The Cardinal has ordered you to keep me alive. [he throws the bag back to Carl, then walks past him] For as long as possible.
    Carl: But I'm not a field man! Van Helsing, I don't want to go to Transylvania!"
