Was looking forward to this one. Was actually rather dull.

You know those infuriating commentaries where there's about 70% information and 30% dead air while the commentator watches the film? Well, Parker (who hasn't seen the film for 20 years) doesn't do that: he talks from start to finish. However, the result is 70% information and 30%...the same information. He has a lot of background to supply on this unique movie but constantly repeats himself to avoid leaving gaps - he must talk about the inefficiency of the prop cars/guns and the ridiculousness of the concept a dozen times at least. If you can filter out the recycling then it's pretty comprehensive, and it does get less repetitious as it goes on.
