Movie Reviews

DYNAMICALLY EDUCATIONAL - NOT AFFECTED
Jef Cameron | San Francisco, CA | 11/22/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Having investigated these program discs, both the BBC BDs and the Discovery Channel's set are identical in imagery and transfer quality (1080i, not 1080p). But frankly, I have to say I find the Sigourney Weaver narration AND the completely different music score to be FAR superior to the bland, milquetoast British edition's sound (& I have both).

Just compare the difference in their respective teasers: vivacious & energetic versus sleep-inducing! The DC version's complete soundscape is dynamic and engaging, as well as more directly educational (Ms. Weaver's regular comments on how shots were achieved, etc.), and as much as I greatly respect and appreciate the decades of educational programming from both David Attenborough and the BBC Natural History Unit, I have to work to stay awake with their somewhat affected narration and sound design. If an exciting visual AND aural experience is what you look for in your BD collection, I highly recommend the Discovery Channel version of 'planet earth'."
NOT full 1080p resolution

"This is the American version with Sigourney Weaver doing the narration. It was transfered to Blu-Ray with 1080 /60i resolution. Compared to 1080p disks this one is very soft and grainy. If you're buying it for the great scenes and as an educational endeavor that's fine, but if you're expecting a reference quality disk with sharp /crystal clear 1080p images, I would suggest looking into the British version which I believe is full 1080p (narration is also British)"
Planet earth excellent

"Wonderful DVDs of our earth we will probably never get to see in such spectacular color and amazing visuals. I wanted Planet Earth in Blu-ray at a great price and Amazon had it. I wanted a supplier who was reasonable and reliable. Amazon supplied both."
