Movie Reviews

(1 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this movie because the case states that there is information about lighthouses from Washington, Oregon and California coast on it. Instead this DVD has a short history on a select few east coast lighthouses and the rest is just pictures of these lighthouses. Discs 2&3 contain the same information as disc 1 but have a few more pictures with music playing in the background. I would not suggest this DVD to anyone."

"As a lighthouse enthusiast for many years, I was immediately intrigued by the packaging which offers an embedded speaker that emits the sounds of Sea Gulls, Waves and a Foghorn. Very cool! The five discs are all exceptional in and of themselves and offer absolutely stunning photography of some of my favorites; Pemaquid Point, Fire Island, etc. All in all this is a great value for the money too. 5 discs in an emossed metal box for under $20.00? For me it was a no-brainer. Definitely should be part of anyone's collection."
Nice footage, but little information

"I'm kind of torn on this package and I really wanted to give it 5 stars.

One the positive side, the images contained in the video footage is stunning - you can really tell the director has a great passion for these historical landmarks and planned each and every shot with loving care & precision - there's nothing amatuer about the footage contained on this set. The video & sound quality on each disk is consistently excellent.

On the other hand - one thing that really bugs me is the lack of information on the subject matter. The narration is very inconsistent. Some lighthouses get more background history while others get nothing more than an introduction. I would like to have seen - or rather heard - more consistency in the narration. Another thing I noticed was some reptition of material spread across the disks. Footage isn't repeated, but it's not unusual to see the same lighthouse appear twice on two seperate disks.

Overall though, I really like this set for what it is, a loving and beautiful look at some of our nations historical nautical landmarks."
