    Tim Colliver’s commentary track is one of the worst of such “extras” I have ever found. He comes off as a happy-talking but empty-headed DJ who is ad-libbing his commentary and just filling time. A few interesting anecdotes make it into his otherwise boring and surprisingly sparse monologue. Colliver pulls a few gaffs, too – he mispronounces “depth” as “dep” twice, makes numerous grammatical errors, fails to distinguish between concave and convex lenses, and says he feels obligated to point out the differences between the movie and the novelization… and vice versa! On the other hand, the isolated music track is dramatic and well-recorded. Some of the tracks were used in the first season of the Voyage TV series and can be heard here. But unlike the isolated music track on the new release of Fantastic Voyage, dialog is not heard where the orchestra is silent, leaving very long periods of screen action with no sound whatsoever.I did not pull out the previous edition of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea on a two-sided disk with Fantastic Voyage to compare the video quality, but for my money, this “Global Warming” edition is not worth the expenditure.
