Movie Reviews

Blu ray
Thomas M. Fallstich | Allentown, PA | 10/05/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As of this writing I have only previewed each disc in the collection. "Planet Earth" comes w/4 discs and is displayed in 1080 Progressive Scan. The remaining discs in the collection are in 1080i, however, I can see no remarkable difference. There is, however, a marked difference between DVD and Blu-Ray. This collection needs to be seen in Bluray to fully appreciate it's potential. So far, all discs are of the highest quality and interestingly narrated; As good as, or better, than the very best nature documentary one has ever seen on television. Well worth the price for the amount of high-quality footage (over 1000 minutes); Can easily be viewed more than once, especially by children...There is no price difference whether you buy these sets individually or in this box set---this way, though, they come in their individually marked plastic cases, and all 4 boxes fit into the pictured cardboard case."
Great boxed set of great programs!

"I don't understand the reasoning behind the other review of 2 stars. Yes it is a boxed set of each of the programs that you can also buy separately, but isn't that the definition of a box set? I have seen each of these programs, and they are all excellent! BBC always delivers great documentaries. Planet Earth and Galapagos are a must!"
Why I bought a Blu Ray
Terry M. Madsen | Salt Lake City, Utah | 07/12/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Being a photographer and a lover of nature, animals, and culture I decided to gift myself the new HDTV, Blu Ray and this collection of documentaries for my birthday. I am incredibly pleased with everything I have watched and appreciate the cinematography, writing and narration that went into the making of this series. I have found all the shows so far to be fascinating, informative, even calming and relaxing after a hard day at work. I am humbled by the majesty of our world and feel blessed to experience those parts of it where I may never have a chance to visit."
Speechless beauty

"This collection box is 100% worth the money. There are four discs in Planet Earth, 2 discs (6 hours) in Wild China, 1 in Galapagos and 1 in Ganges. All top Blu-ray qualities that you just cannot miss. I absolutely love this collection and will watch it again and again."
