Rebuild, Incomplete

So Amazon had a bit of a Blu-Ray fire sale last week. I think it might have had to do with the release of MiB3, but no matter since a crapload of Blu-Rays got slashed to under $10. What does this mean? I go in and grab a good chunk of my disaster porn (2012, The Day after Tomorrow, Armageddon, etc.) and some other gems of fun. Sure, I have these all from torrents and earlier DVD iterations, but to get the real ones with the French dubs and commentary tracks and to purge some of the bad karma off my dirty, dirty pirate soul… :P

Anyway, among this Amazing Technicolor Blu-Ray Dream Box (Part 1) is the 2nd part of Rebuild of Evangelion. “US Cast Commentary?” Yes, please! *loot loot loot loot loot*

…except, um, it isn’t a real commentary track as much as it is a bunch of interviews that could have been better placed as separate video extras, because they aren’t really talking about what’s going on in the actual movie and so there’s sort of this disconnect. You start off with the ADR dood, then him talking to the VAs for Shinji, Rei, Misato, Asuka and Mari (separately and in that order) and then an audio engineer… and then there’s no more commentary and it just reverts to the English audio for the remaining 1/3 of the movie. Boo!
