Download and listen to Rian Johnson's commentary for Looper

3 years agoby:

You saw LOOPER, right? Pretty awesome, I must say.

For those who are thinking of seeing it again, you might want to take director Rian Johnson's commentary with you. The track was on the film's tumblr.

Johnson had this to say on the track: "I recorded a commentary track to be downloaded, put on an ipod and listened to in the theater as you’re watching Looper. This is an odd thing I tried with Bloom, and have gotten a few requests for it again, so here it is. It is totally different from the commentary track that will be on the Blu/DVD, a bit more technical and detailed. Needless to say, this is NOT to be listened to on a first viewing, or before you’ve seen the film. Also, please work it so that a glowing screening is never out of your pocket during the movie. Listen to the introduction before heading to the theater, it has instructions. And lemme know how it works."

If you would prefer to download than stream, head here.

I'm just listening to this at home, having seen the movie once, and recalling which scenes Johnson is referring to. I'm not really for listening to a commentary track in the theater, and Johnson does say in the introduction not to have any glowing screens showing and to use in-ear or over-the-ear headphones so you don't disturb others In the theatre. I still think commentaries should be home viewing domain, and don't think I'm losing out much by listening to this commentary 'blind' and so far,

Rian Johnson sounds like a very affable guy in addition to being a brilliant filmmaker, and I like hearing some insight on how some of the special effects sequences were done, and what was done in-camera (apparently, a lot), as well as how the Chinese distribution company DMG Group figured into the production and led to this being a co-production with China. Also, a shoutout to 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' (Garrett Dillahunt homaging his role in that TV show) and the origin of the Mazda Miata (MacGruber!)

What a cool idea. If you could find a spot or a screening where there isn't many people that you wouldn't be disruptive this would be a really fun way to re-watch the film.

kind of a cool idea

to get people to see it more times in the theatre, however it also comes with the likelyhood of people having annoying glowing screens in the theatre as well as AUDIBLE sound coming from their ipod (seeing as they'll have to turn it up so loud to actually hear it considering the full blast nature of sound in theatres)

interesting idea, but I think it's better suited that they just include TWO commentaries on the blu-ray instead of doing this. A 'normal' one and then this, a more 'technical'

I never got the appeal of commentaries. Why would I want people talking over the entire movie rather than just watch the movie. I'd rather just have a comprehensive discussion by the cast and crew as a separate bonus feature. I fully understand why some directors, like Spielberg and Nolan, don't do commentaries.

...because they're already seen the movie. People don't watch commentaries on the first go around, or even the second usually. They watch commentaries with movies they love and are familiar with to get more insight on the film, specific scenes, how things went down, etc....

I enjoy listening to commentaries on films that I'm interested in, and/or if they feature filmmakers I'm fans of. Many commentaries can be really entertaining, particularly those that are done by pairs or groups of filmmakers, writers and/or actors. The chemistry and working relationship between them sometimes carries off the set of the film, and it's a lot of fun to hear them goof as just as they reflect on the process of making the film, offering anecdotes and insights. Some commentaries can

Some commentaries can even be mini 'film school 101' classes, David Fincher's commentary for The Social Network is a great look into the craft of making a really good movie.

if I get into something I want to absorb as much information as I can. It's nice to see a director talk about what was going on in a scene as it is playing.

Is this a thing now? And do we need to encourage this? I feel like someone is going to get majorly pissed at some guy listening to this too loud on his headphones.
