Movie Reviews

Not a blu-ray material
Xin Ning | Toronto, Canada | 03/03/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"No offence to the Oscar winning documentary. I love the story but it was not shot in HD and they didn't even try to covert it. The picture quality is about the same as the regular DVD upconvert at its best. Huge disappointment!"
5 Stars film, 3 Stars Picture/Sound Quality
TheTruthHurts | Boston | 04/03/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"First things first; this is a great film! If you want to view my comments on it, check my DVD review from a couple years ago. I'm here to discuss the HD DVD. Frankly, if you already own the DVD, don't waste your money on the HD version. There is virtually no improvement in picture quality, at least from what I could decipher, over the DVD. Why? Because the film itself was shot with crappy, grainy, low resolution film to give it that "documentary" look.'ll be as surprised as I was when you watch it to see that it looks virtually identical to the DVD version. I was really looking forward to high-def penguins; for great visuals of penguins, "Happy Feet" on HD DVD is the one to buy (correction: rent; it's an abominable film). For a great film, if you don't already own "March of the Penguins" on DVD, buy the HD DVD version. Just don't expect to be blown away. I haven't seen the Blu-Ray, but I would imagine that the PQ is exactly the same."
Terrible Picture
Rick Vaught | Florida | 02/13/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I agree with a couple other reviews that this movie is not worth buying on Bluray. The movie itself was very interesting, but it is definitely not in High Definition. The company that put this out (I believe Warner Brothers) should be ashamed of themselves. I was watching on a 50" plasma that every other bluray I have has looked unbelievable on, but not this one. Would not recommend buying this, unless buying regular version. I wish I new how to get my money back on it."
Not filmed in HD?
B. Nelson | Calgary, Canada | 01/09/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Although the content of the movie was great, it was not worth buying in blu-ray as the picture was no better than DVD. Comparing to the Planet Earth episode with the penguins, the difference in picture is very obvious!"
