From The Clone Cast:
We said we’d do commentaries on the films during the summer of 2010. And blast it, we did it. Well…not commentaries plural. But commentary, singular, yes. Granted we’re getting it in just under the wire, as summer 2010 ends for us in the northern hemisphere on September 23 at 03:09 AM GMT, and this is being uploaded less than an hour before then. But summer is summer.
So sit back and enjoy our commentary on Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. There were no rehearsals. No notes. And we didn’t point out things that Nic wishes we had. But the point here was just to do something relaxed and spontaneous…to make it like you’re just hanging out watching the film with Nic and Josh. Part nerdy Star Wars observations, part MST3K-inspired riffing, this commentary is all us.
Though we do some stuff in the commentary to help with syncing, here’s a helpful tip: The 13 minutes and 52 seconds mark on our audio file syncs up to the 15 second mark on the TPM DVD.
As always, we welcome feedback.
P.S. – Thanks to the folks of MST3K, RiffTrax, and Cinematic Titanic for the inspiration to do something like this. For this kind of thing done professionally, check out rifftrax.com
