Do you listen to movie commentaries?

It's seems most dvd's bonus material contains commentaries, but how many listen to them? Do you think they are just easy "extra" to sell DVDs? I have to love a movie before I'll listen to the commentary.

I love the commentaries! But usually I will watch the movie first without then watch it sometime with them. I am a film student so I find everything they say very interesting. I love all the behind the scenes stuff.

I think the commentaries are usually annoying. I rarely pay any attention to "extras". Generally, the only extra DVD feature I like is bloopers though many DVDs don't have them...at least they're pretty funny and entertaining.

i only listen to them unless im really bored or unless i really like the movie and a particular part in the movie that made you say how did they do that? its pretty good how they explain about the making of it and whatnot

The extras are nice to have but tehy don't influence me on whether I buy or don't buy a DVD - it is the film itself that sells it to me. If you look at older films from the 60;s etc which have been released on DVD they normally only have cinema trailers on them. The only extras/commentray I have ever listened to are those from the Lord of the Rings films

Even when I love the movie I dont watch/listen to the commentaries..I tried that once after watching a flick and it drove me absolutely batty! I think they're just annoying to be honest with you...
