Movie Reviews

2008 Iditarod
J. O'Neil | 05/17/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I watched the abbreviated version of the 2009 Itidarod on TV, but I wanted a more complete / comprehensive version. I searched the web for a 2009 video. I found this video on Amazon, which appeared to be a video of the 2009 race ... but it wasn't. I was initially disappointed that this was not the 2009 race, but in fact the 2008 race. I watched it anyway. The video and commentary is excellent. I learned facts about the race that I didn't know. While I'm disappointed that Amazon didn't make it more obvious that the video is of the 2008 race released in 2009, this Discovery Channel video of the 2008 race is EXCELLENT. I hope that Discovery will also release a vide of the 2009 race, which I will happily purchase."
Makes the Iditarod Come Alive

"I ordered this video after reading Gary Paulsen's (?) book, Winterdance. It was like two views of a stereoscopic picture. Winterdance gives you a real sense of the risk and foolhardiness of dog-sledding...and what the passion of it is. 'Iditarod' gives you a close up view of the people who are sold out to it...and not just the race, but the lifestyle. I go on Iditarod websites now, and read the roster of mushers and I feel like I know a lot of them. I'm asking myself, "I wonder what Lance will pull this year? Does Jeff King still have enough to stay at the front? Is Darin going back out there?" These are people I know now, and I'm cheering for the home team.
Give yourself a bit of adventure and buy this movie. Everytime, I need an outdoor fix, and can't get away for a hike, I pull out this video. It's not the same as being on the trail...but like most of the people out there...who knows where you'll wind up.
I may have passed my prime to actually run the Iditarod, but I'd love to join one of the trail teams or support teams that make the Iditarod possible. Open yourself up to a world where the Spirit of Alaska still runs free!"
Awesome dvd

"I'm from Alaska, and this was a great DVD on the dogs races. I wasn't at all disapointed"
