Movie Reviews

The miracle of life in the animal world.....
Kyle Tolle | Phoenix, Arizona USA | 01/22/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Great Milestones is an exploration into the breeding habits and mating rituals of various types of animals. Interesting aspects of this subject are how the Moon and tides regulate and synchronize certain elements of breeding and how weather conditions also play a part. Not only are land animals studied, but some types of undersea creatures are shown as well.

In the latter half of this documentary, parents protecting and feeding their newborns is touched upon. Finishing up is a look at the young animals leaving the home or nest in the struggle to join the circle of life.

At only 60 minutes long, this feature may leave you wishing for more. The sound, narration, and video are quite well done in my opinion. No bonus features are offered except for a couple of trailers from other programs. The chapters are a bit short due to the time limit but what is presented is entertaining and pleasant nonetheless. As diverse as the animal kingdom is, here's hoping that Reader's Digest will make more of these types of documentaries. If you're a fan of this type of subject matter, this is recommended viewing."
