The Overview: Twilight

The Overthinkers launch The Overview, an occasional series of alternative movie commentaries, with an episode on Twilight.

Today, we’re proud to launch The Overview, an occasional series of alternative audio commentaries for the movies you love—or love to hate.

In honor of today’s premiere of Twilight: Eclipse, we offer you our first episode, covering the first film in the series, Twilight.

To listen to the commentary, you’re going to need a copy of the same movie we’re watching. (Though it would be interesting to play all of our commentaries with, say, The Wizard of Oz and see how they sync up.) Start listening to our commentary on your computer or MP3 player, and we’ll tell you how to cue the movie up and when to hit play.

A bit about what this is, or, rather, isn’t: This isn’t just comedy…we’re not going for laughs. We may get some (intentional, we hope), but the folks at MST3K and, more recently, RiffTrax have got the market cornered on comedy commentaries.

What we’re offering is a bit more specific—we’re offering the experience of watching a movie with…well…us. When the Overthinkers get together to watch a movie (usually Starship Troopers), it’s impossible to shut us up. Insights, observations, jokes, smart-ass remarks, and cultural references start flying. And that’s exactly what we’ve tried to record.

We hope that sharing the overthinking with you gives you a more entertaining, enjoyable experience of the movie. Use the link at the top of the page to contact us and let us know how we did!
