"Sorry to be negative but I disregarded the comments from the buyer who was bored thinking they may expect too much in this day and age of hyper-fast and megacolor but they were right.
This is not good footage, but shot from several moving vehicles that bounce around and really are quite fuzzy, as well as not
really in 3-D. Very limited 3-D effects. Music was different and not very good either. I am seeking a full refund, I was severely disappointed and am warning you ... Buyer Beware
Produces a state of extasy!

"Pure Pleasure is a great way to relax after a hard day's work. Each track is like a mini-vacation that draws you into a blissful feeling of oneness with nature. It plays just like a CD, from track one without the usual FBI notices or animated commercials for the label. Like a CD you can listen to it again and again because there is no talking, just beautiful music. You can sample the music tracks on the Amazon page for the CD soundtrack version. It's also a great background for listening to your own music.
Eight of the tracks are shot using an amazing 3D technique based on motion. Two pairs of special 3D glasses are included that enhance the effect. Blakeslee's web site www.attitudefactor.com has scientific proof that feelings of pleasure are good for your health. This DVD is his attempt to make it easy to go into a healthy state of pure pleasure. Track 25 features Blakeslee talking about his ideas on pleasure and health.
Tracks 16-24 are nature environments only with no music. The Dolby 5.1 nature sounds and the high-rate digital video makes it feel like you are really there. These environmental tracks will cycle indefinitely to create a background environment. Using the Repeat key on your DVD player you can make one play continually. Like having a waterfall that runs forever in your living room."
A Wonderful New Way to Relax and Enjoy Music

"The beautiful nature scenes on this DVD create a magical atmosphere for music listening. Though I love the sensual soundtrack, I often let the video run as a background for listening to my other CDs. Some of the tracks are intended as environmental backgrounds and just have nature sounds which surround you if you have Dolby 5.1. I particularly love the "River Reflections" track which looks like an impressionist painting that is alive with rippling motion of the colors. Crickets and birds surround you in sound. Subtle ripples make beautiful effects which are delicate and subtle.
I pity the guy who found this boring as he probably finds nature itself boring unless it is speeded up with quick-cutting and time-lapse effects. This is the damage caused by watching too much TV! This DVD is an excellent way to develop your sensitivity to nature and to calm your nerves as in meditation.
The nine 3D tracks draw you in very nicely to a feeling of oneness with nature but I'm glad there is a mix of tracks as 3D glasses can cause fatigue after a while. The nice thing about the 3D process used here is that you can watch it without the glasses if you like.
I really hope that this is the first of a whole series in this format."
I LOVE this DVD!!!

"This is a wonderful way to enhance the pleasure of listening to music. Like listening on your Walkman in a beautiful place. The music is like background music from a romantic movie..calm yet emotionally intense. I find that I can watch it again and again and still get an emotional high.
My favorite tracks are the amazing Jellyfish Ballet where beautifully lit jellyfish undulate gracefully to the music. I also love River Reflections, which looks like a living impressionist painting with trees and sky reflected in a slow moving river. Tiny details, like ripples from fish feeding from below making circles, hold your interest. Crickets and birds in surround sound make you feel like you're there.
This is the opposite of an MTV video where you are beat over the head with quick-cutting. The more you watch it the more you learn to appreciate the amazing subtleties of uncut nature."
