Favorite Special Features Package on DVD

This should get a lot of good ones. What are some of the special feature packages you have seen and loved on DVD?

Some of mine include Spiderman 2. Collateral, Pirates of the Carribean and Die Another Day.

Mainly because I learned so much by watching them. The list could go on and on.

For director comentary, I'd have to say that a lot of those put me to sleep. Does anyone know of some the do not?

The "Lord of the Rings" extended DVD's are massive on special
features of course, the "Ultimate Matrix" 10 disc set has massive
amounts of special features as well. "Lost in La Mancha" was
a great making-of or destruction-of movie and the second disc
that came with "From Dusk Till Dawn" was nice as well.

For some other greatness info I would recommend you to look
at the annual Bitsy awards that where just done by www.thedigitalbits.com:

Rodriguez's "10 minute film school" on the El Mariachi DVD is something I think everyone should have to see :)

I saw "The Grudge" the other night and thought the special features on that one was pretty good. But don't bother with the comentary. It's eight cast and crew members talking about how cool it was to party in Japan for a couple months. I couldn't sit through it.


And of course Rober Rodriguez has some really good stuff on all of the Mexico movies. I wish more people would give some input because these are people we can learn from.

I liked Ridley Scott's comments on "The Duellists" (his first feature). How he got rid of his DOP, operating much of the film himself, mistakes etc.

Very true, it is boring to the extreme to hear everyone praising everyone and everything on a film, especially if you know how awful the atmosphere between them often is during the filming.
That's why directors' comments on older films often are (a bit) more honest: the film doesn't need desperate promoting anymore.
