Movie Reviews

A lot of S. Hawkings a few of the theory and almost nothing
S. Giora | Bologna, Italy | 04/02/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"If you want to know about the theory of everything you'd better watch the NOVA - The Elegant Universe (2003), because from this DVD you'll know a lot about S. Hawking and his antique voice reproductive software, but nothing new about everything."
Don't waste your money!!!

""The theory of everything" does not go into Any detail on Anything (other than Stephen Hawking himself) this is a waste of time for any "enthusiast"."
You get updated everything, including the kitchen sink.

"For one thing, you won't have the answer to the theory of everything after watching this dvd. But you will have a good understanding of this process, including latest scientific research into this everything undertaking, an introduction to quantum mechanics, as well as string theory, and throw in a few renowned guest speakers in this field, and you get this cutting edge modern physics program. The theory of everything is a grand unification theory and it's not resolved yet, we're waiting for the next Einstein to step up. Though Hawking was working on it, he sure has a following of students who could be next at cracking it.

The program is organized and flows well. Any laymen can pick it up. In summary it's a documentary (science), but also a bit of biography into Hawking's life. We see the craze of his new book at local colleges. We see his mentors, and old high school photographs. So I guess you can this, his kitchen sink. If you're a fan of Hawking, this is a must have. Containing 2 episodes, it's worth the purchase price. This being a recent release (March '09), I wished it was available on blu ray. Other dvd's I recommend similar to this: The Elegant Universe (Nova, Brian Greene), and What the Bleep!? - Down the Rabbit Hole Quantum. All 5 star quality."
