It’s been awhile since I’ve subjected you all to another retro look at the podcast that started this site, and for that I apologize profusely. I’m sure you were quite bummed. Anyway, this month I’d like to point your attention to the second episode of our beloved podcast in which CalamityEnsues, thegreatredhope and I gave commentary to the film Dumb and Dumber. It was quite the doozy….uh…back when we recorded it.
You can listen to the audio on it’s own or sync it up with the DVD for full effect. I’ve tried it a few times since we stopped podcasting and it’s quite fun to get our reactions to various scenes. Give it a try. I dare you!

Technicolor Commentary started as a podcast site, a place to go to download the latest episodes of our film commentary podcast. The gimmick was that you could sync the podcast up with the film and it would be as if you were actually listening to a commentary track for the film.

This is a look back at the episode tha
t started it all (technically, it isn’t, but I’ll be posting that “special episode” at a later time). We recorded commentary for ROBOCOP. If you’ve seen the film and would like to see what our whole deal was, sync it up and give it a listen. Of course, you don’t have to as it stands on it’s own as a podcast.

OK, so let me just start by saying, yes, I am a hypocrite. I said I was never going to see this film, I said it was going to suck, I said it was just Hollywood BS. I read the comic, loved it, and caved in. I saw the movie. Was I right? Kind of. Let’s discuss. Or rather, I’ll tell you my thoughts, and you can read them. Or not. We can still be friends.
So, let’s talk about the good first. The movie is very faithful to the source material. Sure, there are a few changes, but for the most part, we get much of what Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons had put together way back in the 80s. We get spot on origin stories. We get a nearly exact plot. We get dialog and compositions straight out of the comics.
