Well now I guess all can be revealed regarding my involvement in the special bonus features on the Blu-ray release. Yes, it’s true – it will be my voice you will be hearing on the commentary track – as I talk at length about the troubled history of the making of the movie and impart the odd piece of fascinating trivia here and there. I would like to give a big thank you to Cliff MacMillan at Shout Factory for allowing me this terrific opportunity and also a big thanks to special features producer Reed Kaplan for chasing up some of my suggestions for people to approach. I would also like to thank my illustrious co-host on the commentary track, my good friend Dave Bradley and also engineer Kat McCarthy for driving the desk during the recording – thanks Kat!
I look forward to checking out what I am sure will be a release which will be enthusiastically embraced by fans around the world – as well as sparking interest from new fans who have yet to see this fun little movie.
Cheers everyone! – And thanks again!
Well now that the disk has been released; here’s what some people are saying about the commentary track …
“… The most valuable extra is the audio commentary by SATURN 3 ‘experts’ Greg Moss and Dave Bradley. These dudes are obsessed – but since this is a film with such a complex and tortured history these are precisely the kinds of people you want on the case. The discussion is academic but informative.” – Horace Cordier, rock!shock!pop!.com
“ … Moss has a very vast and intricate knowledge of the background story behind the making of SATURN 3 … this commentary was a solid, informative listen which gave me a new perspective on the movie.” – Rupert Pupkin, rupertpupkinspeaks.blogspot.com.au
“Shout! Factory include an audio commentary by Greg Moss (Saturn 3 Fan site) and film critic David Bradley who impress with their knowledge of the film and playful bantering about the film’s merits and detractions …” – Gary Tooze, dvdbeaver.com
“Best Feature: The ‘Commentary Track’ is by far the most comprehensive and candid due to Greg Moss of the Saturn 3 Fan Page dishing all the dirt on everything from the firing of John Barry to the replacement of Keitel’s voice – love honesty in any form.” – Jason Coleman, Starpulse.com
“… The jewel in the cybernetic crown is the audio commentary track with critic David Bradley and Greg Moss of Something Is Wrong on Saturn 3, chock full of facts and behind-the-scenes scuttlebutt. Moss is a longtime enthusiast of the film, and while he’s quick to point out its flaws, just as much attention is given to what Donen and his able cast/crew get right.” – Aaron Christensen, HorrorHound Magazine
“… Moss, host of the ‘Something is Wrong on Saturn 3’ website, is the authority on the history of the film and along with moderator Bradley, the two make for an impressively detailed commentary. No rock is left unturned and while there are certain dry spells, they are warranted considering how many interesting facts and anecdotes are expressed in just a few breaths. If principal talent cannot be secured for a film commentary, this is exactly the kind of expert commentary one wants to hear. You will walk away enlightened and with a deeper appreciation for ‘Saturn 3’.” – Mike Kenny, AVManiacs.com
“… Greg Moss goes through tons of information on the film … It’s incredibly informative, well versed and stays on track. Probably the highlight of the release … the commentary track provides an incredible passion and history regarding the production and all the film’s players. Its almost worth recommending it over the actual audio.” – Brandon Peters, whysoblu.com
“While not a “collector’s edition” title, Saturn 3 is loaded up with great extras, including a commentary track by Greg Moss, the mad-genius behind the blog Something is Wrong on Saturn 3, which is literally the most comprehensive source of Saturn 3 information anywhere. Moss brings his expertise here in a hugely enjoyable and informative track that, for me, is reason enough to own this Blu-ray. Seriously, I cannot remember the last time I recommended a purchase based on a commentary track; this one is that good!” – Head Cheeze, horrorview.com
