Competent but unexciting documentary

"Antarctica Dreaming is a competently produced documentary, but nothing extraordinary. While informative and well shot, this production left a lot to be desired. The narrator's voice is dull, monotone, and wooden. The entire production seemed very mechanical and lacked soul.
If you've had your fill of penguins and walruses over the last few years due to all the documentaries and animations, it's better off to skip this DVD entirely. This is nothing you haven't seen before. In light of the other much more superior penguin/Antarctic animal documentaries produced, like March of the Penguins, or the BBC Planet Earth series, your money is better spent there.
The extras include six mini-documentaries. The rest of the options lead to a still screen with text descriptions."
Antarctica Dreaming Blu-Ray

"I'm not quite sure how many Antarctica documentaries the previous reviewer has seen, but I have seen quite a few, and this one is definitely worth the time and money. The scenery is nicely shot, with a good mix of animal and nature scenes, and the Blu-Ray quality is very good, as one might expect from the HD Window series. I also found the extras, six "mini" documentaries, to be very interesting and a good adddition to the disc. These Blu-Ray discs are meant to be informative and high quality alternatives to the big budget "documentaries" flooding the market recently. It succeeds in both areas, and I think you will enjoy it for what it is, a well shot, high quality presentation."
