Movie Reviews

Unmatchable Perfection.

"As in my other review regarding this BBC Atlas of the Natural World, I will confirm this complete series has no peer - including the recent ' Planet Earth ' production !!

And I repeat ... those who have not viewed this shockingly remarkable group of DVDs have no idea of what they are missing !!

This review is focused on the complete set of this view into the natural world. The whole thing is unbelievably outstanding !!"
Gee whiz, it's South America

"In light of the BBC's previous cutting edge documentaries about lifestyles and animals, "Wild South America" is a huge disappointment. The gorgeous landscapes and remarkable close-ups of animals lose their power thanks to Nicholas Hooper's repetitive attempt at indigenous music and the frequent redundancies in content. But the most distressing element of this six-part series is the narration written by Pelham Aldrich-Blake and spoken with inappropriate romanticism by Fergal Keane. Frequently anthropomorphic and generally banal, it carries a "gee whiz" attitude as if the filmmakers were surprised by what they found with their own research. The producers clearly had time and money to spend on this major series, and their efforts and devotion show in its stunning visuals. Too bad it has nothing to say that couldn't be found in a grammar school primer."
