Did you hear that?

This is a special feature on the 2-Disc DVD for Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones. It deals with the sound of said film. All aspects of that portion are covered here. This consists of interviews, clips from the movie(among other things), and footage from recording sessions and other parts of the creative process of either making the audio side or getting it to work. Burtt is perhaps the one who says the most, for pretty obvious reasons. This tells you how some of the things were done, as well as what the concepts behind them were, as well of providing something of a glimpse into the world of working on this. The technical aspects are satisfactory, this'll neither have you glued to the screen nor bored out of your mind. It's average on the whole, if it does hold some interesting information. I personally found it unappealing just how much Lucas had produced(from other sources than what it's meant to appear to come from, in the title itself) for this, I mean... I completely understand the desire in a director to hold a lot of control over what he's putting together, but, really, why is he even still using actors, if authenticity means this little to him? But I digress. There is a brief suggestive bit, dialog-wise, but that's it for such. I recommend this to those who want to know more about the subject in question, regardless of how they feel about the second Prequel(though I would advise having seen it first, to avoid spoilers). 5/10
