Movie Reviews

Brain surgery and baby making
LF | USA | 01/20/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The current "spotlight review" on this site complains that this video doesn't cover a wide range. Well, why don't you direct the next one and include everything that we know about the human body, all in one hour. Just how much of a range do you want to cover in 55 minutes. It's a silly complaint.

We actually get to see open brain surgery being done on a conscious patient. That's not the kind of thing I see every day. I have only done three or four brain surgeries on conscious patients. How about you?

We get to see a couple trying to have a baby, going for in vitro fertilization, and we see what that actually means. We see the little sperm cells moving around in the microscope slide.

We see the smile on the lady's face when she finds out that she is pregnant with twins. We find out why multiple births are so common with this procedure - because they implant multiple fertilized eggs into the woman in hopes that at least one of them will result in pregnancy. I didn't know that. And she gets to decide how many, the choices generally being 2 or 3 apparently.

We see the wife of the man who is undergoing brain surgery, and we live the experience with her as well as her husband. We even meet their kids, the little girl who was told she may have to teach her daddy to read. She seemed very proud that she could help.

Somebody is criticizing this video? What an ingrate. Pearls before ingrates. Some other connoisseur on this site has judged that he has seen superior films, and therefore this one deserves nothing but criticism. What are you, nuts? Get over yourself."
Below the average
jfnsantiago | Rio de Janeiro, Brazil | 10/10/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I thought this DVD slightly below an average National Geographic video once there is more personal dramas than scienfic information. However I was moved by the story of a teacher with a brain tumor and his family anxiety."
The Best Geographic Video I've Seen
LF | 11/22/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I gotta say that this is the best National Geographic video I've seen and I have a whole bunch on my video shelf. The animation is fantastic. I'll remember the story of the school teacher and his brain tumor as long as I live. I also liked seeing behind this scenes of thast basketball team as it was something I hadn't seen before. I highly reccommend this video."
Fascinating
Larry Scott Lehman | Austin, Tx | 05/04/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was well documented, informative, amazing, and I would recommend getting off of the fence and pulling the trigger, if you are already moving forward, rest easy, you made a wise decision. Very enjoyable."
