Criterion commentary

I found this quote in a Roger Ebert article concerning Matthew Dessem, a man who is attempting to watch every movie in the Criterion Collection catalog:

"My absolute favorite commentary track on any Criterion title so far," he said, "is the one with NASA consultant Dr. Joe Allen and asteroid consultant Ivan Bekey (as well as the cinematographer, Joe Schwartzman) talking about 'Armageddon.' It's basically two-and-a-half hours of these guys saying, over and over again, 'We told Michael Bay that this scene was completely scientifically inaccurate, but he went ahead and did it anyway'."

And that's the last Michael Bay dig for the year 2009. Here's looking to 2010, Mr. Bay!
