audio commentary reccomendations

For the past year, editor in chief Peter Sciretta has been asking me to write about my favorite audio commentaries. If I ever recommend one to him, he asks about the list. Compiling a list of only a few must-hear audio commentaries sounded like too much of a challenge. There’s far too many I haven’t heard yet, so writing some “best commentary list” didn’t feel right. I have a lengthy list of commentary tracks I intend on listening to, and the plan is to write about a few of them — at least the good ones — around the start of every month.

These first five recommendations feature insights from Martin Scorsese, Robert ZemeckisJ.J. AbramsTom Ford, Penelope Spheeris, and many others.  Below, check out our movie commentary recommendations.

Sense8 season 2 premiere date

Netflix comes bearing gifts. Whether they’re wanted or unwanted gifts, though, will depend on your tolerance for Lana and Lilly Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski‘s brand of metaphysical sci-fi insanity. The streaming service has officially announced that a Sense8 Christmas special will drop later this month, just as we suspected. But that’s not all. They’ve also confirmed a Sense8 season 2 premiere date for 2017, and shared a batch of first-look photos from the new run of episodes.  Read More »

Netflix Offline Playback Is Finally Here

Netflix offline

When it comes to convenience, it’s hard to beat Netflix. You can stream shows to your living room TV, to your tablet while you’re at the gym, to your smartphone while you’re waiting in a checkout line. The one big catch has been that you need an internet connection to do it. Netflix is great if you’re looking to pass time while riding the bus; less so if you’re headed to a subway with no wifi connection.

Well, as of today, that restriction is being removed. Netflix has announced it’s finally offering offline mode to its customers. Even better, this new feature comes at no additional cost to customers.  Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Suicide Squad - Jared Leto as Joker

The Suicide Squad extended cut hit VOD last week, with 13 extra minutes of footage for those who left the theater longing for more. However, those yearning for more Joker specifically may still feel cheated. Although both Jared Leto and David Ayer have confirmed a lot of the Joker’s scenes were left on the cutting room floor, it seems only a fraction of that material made it back into the extended edition.

So one disappointed fan has taken matters into their own hands, compiling into a single video all of the Joker footage that was teased in set videos, TV spots, and B-roll but not included in the theatrical or extended editions. Watch it below.  Read More »
