Movie Reviews

Worth it
S. Ramchandani | 06/04/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great disc to own, It has amazing picture & sound quality. Something we all expect from Blu Ray discs. Rudy Maxa is a great Host & gives us several tips which include even where to buy bus tickets, what to look for at a bus stop etc. there are maps of the location..all this & more, which should be helpfull to all foregin travellers who can sometimes get confused in places like these.
The photography & music are first grade & this is the next best thing to being there.
now for the drawbacks : There is just not enough of Italy shown, considering the storage capacity of Blu Ray discs a lot more could have been included. plus some extra features like interactive maps, best & worst seasons to visit, List of festivals & local Holidays, Important Italian phrases or words & their english translation etc should also have been included."
Excellent video quality - plays perfectly on my PS-3

"The images are stunning. It is in 1080i but still looks fantastic. Very informative. Rudy Maxa is interesting to listen to and he gives good tips for travelling in the areas he documents. I felt I had to review this blu-ray when I saw one of three reviews from someone who apparantly did not update their firmware and had problems watching the disk and rated this one star. There are other titles in this series including France and Italy which are also filmed beautifully and are interesting. Also video is 16:9 and not 1:33. Beautiful widescreen."
Great video

"It's more of a guidebook type of video, with actual travel advice. It's not terribly insightful, but it's not annoying either. Fortunately, even if you're not planning a trip to Italy, it's nice to see these amazing locations in HD."
