Apparently, ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' is really popular. With the advent of the DVDCommentary, many, many groups have sprung up to offer their insight onto some of the movies they [[GushingAboutShowsYouLike love]], or [[Administrivia/ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike hate]], or [[{{Hatedom}} love to hate]], or [[GuiltyPleasures hate to love]]. Some do it much like the original... snarky commentary on bad movies. Some take their favorite movies and add snarky commentary. And some even do snarky commentary on television shows. Whatever the reason, they provide commentaries for your download and enjoyment.

Compare with LetsPlay, for Alternate Videogame Commentary.

!!Examples:

* ''Podcast/RiffTrax'' (created by ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'''s Mike Nelson and co-starring fellow [=MST3K=] alumni Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, with guest riffers including Mary Jo Pehl [before ''WebVideo/CinematicTitanic''], Bridget Nelson and occasional celebrities) focuses on newer films and sells mp3s on iTunes and elsewhere to be played alongside the movie.
** The Rifftrax site also offers Mike Nelson's solo commentary tracks synced to several public domain movies. The commentaries feature information about the films involved combined with riffing. Eventually the full Rifftrax team made complete riffs for the same movies.
** Mike Nelson has also done traditional DVD commentary on some regular genre releases as well.
* ''WebVideo/CinematicTitanic'' (created by [=MST3K=]'s Joel Hodgson and [=MST3K=] alumni Trace Beaulieu, J. Elvis Weinstein, Frank Conniff and Mary Jo Pehl) did this in live shows until they disbanded in 2013. However, [=DVDs=] are available.
* [[http://www.filmpigs.com Film Pigs]]
* [[http://www.spoilerspodcast.com The Spoilers]]
* [[http://www.sharecrow.com Sharecrow]], a program that synchs up alternate commentaries to your DVD.
* [[http://www.zarban.com Zarban.com]], a database of Alternate DVD Commentaries. Most of the individual commentating groups on this page are linked to by Zarban, including many fan-submitted Rifftrax (you still have to pay for them).
* "[[http://www.illegal-art.org/video/wizard.html Wizard People, Dear Reader!]]" for ''Film/HarryPotter''.
* [[http://watchamovie.libsyn.com/ Hey, Want To Watch A Movie?]] By a rotating group of podcasters and [[{{Podiobooks}} PodioBook]] authors.
* [[http://downinfront.net/ Down In Front]], a podcast which has less to do with snark and more to do with intelligent conversation about whatever film is the subject of that particular week, along with plenty of laughs and tidbits along the way. The creators and hosts are big fans of Wiki/TVTropes, and reference various tropes on nearly every episode.
* [[https://itun.es/i6625Tn Back Row Chatter!]] commentary tracks go from snarky to analytical to tangential, depending on the film. During their ''SoulPlane'' episode, the commentators resort to talking about health foods in an attempt to avoid ''actually having to talk about the movie.'' The commentators repeatedly state that the podcast is meant to work just as well whether or not you're actually watching the movie.
* A regular event at the {{Transformers}} convention Botcon is [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/MSTF MSTF]], where a trio of {{Big Name Fan}}s riff on old Transformers episodes.
* Most anime conventions have the "Bad Anime, Bad!" Panel where a few guests (and the entire audience) team up to rip the worst animation Japan has to offer to hilarious, bloody shreds. These panels are ''notoriously'' hard to get in to as they tend to fill up quickly.
* IncognitoCinemaWarriorsXP is a series of these, with season one being full-length riffs on movies released to DVD and season two being riffs on short films being released online (with a feature-length season finale.)
* Podcast/DVDPodblast.
* [[http://www.cftp.us/ Cinematic For The People]] A former local tv show, they post several episodes - complete movies with riffing and host segments - each year to their Website/YouTube channel. They also apparently do live riffing at conventions, both scifi and anime.
* ''FanFic/YouGotHaruhiRolled'' has a short story where Fujiwara does this to a recruitment video made by LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya's SOS Brigade, where every character acts the opposite of how they do in the rest of the fic, let alone canon. It's a parody of CharacterDerailment.
* A [[http://www.terrania.us/journal/2004/08/lupin-iii-castle-of-cagliostro.html fan-made commentary track]] for ''Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro'', and a second one is packaged with the Creator/DiscotekMedia DVD.

And creator-made examples:
* ''WebVideo/CommentaryTheMusical'' to ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingALongBlog'', naturally.
* ''BrokenSaints'' Chapter 19 Act 1 features a hidden audio track that basically consists of the creators goofing around making jokes about the episode and saying the lines in funny voices.
* The DVD of ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' includes a spoof cheapo ''WesternAnimation/ClutchCargo''-esque cartoon with an optional commentary track by the "real" Mr. Incredible and Frozone, who are aghast at how bad it is.
** The Creator/{{Pixar}} short "Mike's New Car" has a commentary track by a bunch of kindergarteners on the Pixar Shorts collection and a ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' DVD release.
* Several films have commentaries from the actors... as their characters.
** The DVD release of ''Film/BubbaHoTep'' includes a commentary track from Creator/BruceCampbell... as Music/ElvisPresley.
** The commentary track for ''Film/TropicThunder'' had Creator/RobertDowneyJr.... AS Kirk Lazarus AS Lincoln Osiris (his character from the movie)... doubly hilarious, since Osiris!Lazarus himself claims in the movie proper that he doesn't drop character until after he's recorded the DVD commentary. Apparently he wasn't kidding.
** The Creator/{{MGM}} versions of ''Film/ThisIsSpinalTap'' have commentary from Creator/ChristopherGuest, Creator/HarryShearer and Michael [=McKean=] as the band members they play.
** Some releases of ''Film/SpaceJam'' have character commentary by WesternAnimation/BugsBunny and WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck.
* ''Film/TheMatrix'' [=DVDs=] have commentaries from philosophers and movie critics instead of the cast and crew.
* The first season of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' was released without the already recorded commentary tracks due issues that Creator/WarnerBros, the distributor, had with comments Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone made about WB properties. Creator/ComedyCentral had [=CDs=] made as part of a mail-in offer as well as for those who ordered the set directly from them.
* During the Creator/RussellTDavies era of ''Series/DoctorWho'' episodes were accompanied by two different commentaries. One was a podcast available after the episode aired and the other being a regular DVD commentary. Sadly they stopped making the podcast commentaries and even the DVD commentaries aren't on every episode any more.
* One of the commentaries on the ''BrotherBear'' DVD is by the moose brothers Rutt & Tuke, played by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas. You even get MST-like sillouettes when they get up to answer the door for their pizza. Said pizza man then joins the commentary.
* ''Film/MuppetsFromSpace'' has commentary from the director, Gonzo, and Rizzo (with brief appearances by Kermit) complete with [=MST3K=] silhouettes. Comments run from the mundane to dream sequences being shot entirely inside someone's head.
* One episode of ''TheBoondocks'' TV show has commentary by Uncle Ruckus, a self-hating racist character.
* One [=DVD=] release of ''Film/ChristmasEvil'' has a commentary track by Creator/JohnWaters.
* The Deluxe Edition of ''Film/FridayThe13thTheFinalChapter'' includes a fan commentary by Adam Green (''Film/{{Hatchet}}'') and Joe Lynch (''WrongTurn2DeadEnd'').
* The ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' commentary track with Harold Ramis, Ivan Reitman and Joe Medjuk use an ''[=MST3K=]''-style Shadowrama as well.
* A bonus feature on the DVD of ''MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers'' has Mickey, Donald, Goofy and Pete doing commentary over a scene.
* The commentary for ''Film/DungeonsAndDragonsWrathOfTheDragonGod'' is [=MST3K=]-style by three of the production team acting as three iconic D&D characters Jozan (Cleric), Lidda (Rogue), and Krusk (Barbarian).
