Is More Necessarily Better???

"In this case: No. Have you ever sat in front of the TV and surfed thru 300 cable stations only to find that there's nothing worth watching? That's the way I feel about this DVD.
The early fires, (each runs only 10 - 35 minutes) burn way too hot with huge flames that make you want to bust out the fire extinguisher before the house comes down. - Not exactly relaxing.
The later fires have cartoonish, clip-art-like mantles that look childish and really bad on the TV screen. And don't even get me started on those candles against the black screen with the white dots (a shot at an evening sky I assume).
By the way, Is relaxing music supposed to include 'Horns'?
I don't want mantles, a camera zooming in and out, goofy gimicks like matches striking, ......I just want ONE good fire, that is long running.

"I bought this DVD and Virtual Flames. This one is much better, mainly because it uses real wood, not gas logs. Of the 9 fires on this DVD, (if you count candles as a fire), most are no better than 1 star. This is mostly because they show too much foreground instead of just the fire. However, there is one good one and one is enough. All you see is the fire. It uses real wood and is realistic. It's not a huge fire, more of a cozy one, with about 4 pieces of wood, (I wouldn't call them logs). However, it is about right for my 28 inch TV. If you have a giant screen you might want to find a bigger, log burning fire. I liked it well enough to buy another one for a gift. It can be automatically looped to run forever."
A Hit for the Holidays

"I purchased this DVD to play on the office TV set as part of our holiday decorations. It was a big hit. Offers eight different fires and a sequence of holiday candles burning. Special features allow you to play the different fires in a loop or in sequence, allowing for a nice, constant fire on the screen or the various fires in sequence. For the office, we played the "fire crackling" sound, but the DVD does offer other music, holiday and non-holiday to play along with the fire. A fun item for parties if you don't have a real fireplace."
