The Terminator Salvation Blu-ray disc can be watched with live director commentary tonight. It's starting. Update: McG is making a Terminator 5. No!
6:05: Logging into the Warner Bros. BD-Live account now.
6:08: There's a Harry Potter one on December 12, apparently.
6:12: Trying to figure out how to log into this commentary.
6:12: Sorry, I may have already had a few beers before this thing started.
6:15: I think it's the Director's Cut disc...
6:16: Still loading. It's a good thing I saw this movie already.
6:17: This IS December 5th right?? Why are there no screenings available?
6:25: OK I'm in. Had to join the session by joining the invite from an email. My fault.
6:26: Strange, it seems to be text only. I thought this thing was going to have audio.
6:29: There's even an option to have Event Audio "on", but it's not working.
6:30: Someone just asked him what's up with the name "McG"
6:30: Long silence.
6:31: He explains his mom actually came up with the idea to call him McG.
6:36: There we go! Commenter dishab says I had to change to Linear PCM audio to hear it. How in the hell would anyone know how to do that?
6:37: And now either McG is silent, or the audio stream somehow cut out. But he is talking about how he wanted to be a Laker.
6:39: This is seriously annoying. How would a normal person with a PS3 know to flip back and forth between Bitstream and PCM Audio? How would they even know what the hell either of those meant?
6:40: Don't get me wrong; the idea is pretty great. To have a director give live commentary and answer questions on top of the movie is a good idea. But this BD-Live implementation isn't any better than it was last year with The Dark Knight. In fact, I think it may actually be worse now.
