Default Directors with the best extras

Which directors usually have the best extras for their movies? I know Ridley Scott and Peter Jackson are usually the kings of this, but I'd like to hear other examples.

Woody Allen

Ridley for sure is the best I'd say. Zack Snyder and David Fincher are some more good ones

Kevin Smith is another good one. When DVD was the format of choice, his releases were stacked. They're pretty much all just carried over to the Blu-Ray releases of his film, save for one glaring exception.

Kevin Smith's commentary tracks are fantastic.

Edgar Wright always does well for extras, all three parts of the Cornetto Trilogy have great stuff plus his commentary tracks with Simon Pegg are fantastic.

Francis Ford Coppola - his commentaries are always eloquent, involved and insightful.

John Carpenter and guest commentary. Usually Kurt Russell, but the others are good. Haven't heard the Jeff bridges one on starman yet, but I heard that's one of the best commentaries.

He's usually very informative, engaging, and has some amusing anecdotes.

agree with many already listed- also would include early Scorsese on- Criterion laserdisc- for Raging Bull and Taxi Driver. Skip film school and give both of those commentaries a listen. For a wanna-be filmmaker- they are fantastic.

Love him or hate him, but Michael Bay stacks those Transformers releases with tons of extras.

Also depending on the locale, don't forget:

Alfred Hitchcock
Terry Gilliam
Brian de Palma
Steven Spielberg
Robert Zemeckis
Ron Howard
Akira Kurosawa
Charlie Chaplin
Jean Pierre Jeunet

Obviously there are dozens more. Again, depending on the locale a title is released, can and will have varying bonus features.

Another director I think usually provides good extras is Bryan Singer and his X-Men films. The first film, X2 and DOFP: The Rogue Cut all have pretty darn solid special features.

David Fincher has some of the most stacked releases around, dating all the way back to the Se7en Criterion laserdisc. Which makes it odd that the Gone Girl blu-ray only has a commentary track. I guess itís also odd that Panic Room hasnít made it to Blu-Ray.

Ridley Scott also jam packs most of his releases. Although I still hold out hope he revisits 1492 one day, Iíd love a proper special edition release.

Frank Henenlotter and John Waters do great commentary tracks!
