Movie Reviews

Not the Whole Solar System
Patrick J. Murpphy | Fayetteville, NC | 07/25/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While certainly a great 2 disk video set, it it misnamed. The series is extremely detailed and looks great. The disks cover Mercury, Venus, Earth, the Moon, the Sun, Mars, and Jupiter. It does not cover the outer gas giant planets; nor mention them. Many moons of the large gas giants are fascinating; the ones around Jupiter get short shrifted. I don't enjoy commentaries that over over dramatized either; this set has a bit of that. I want the facts, not dramatization. I know the sun will self destruct eventually, for instance; no need to be dramatic. The great plus to the set is the CGI is up to date and done well. Great teaching tool for the planets mentioned. The detail on the Moon was very good!"
The series MEANT for Blu-ray!

"We already have a number of "The Universe" titles in our DVD library, but we just received a new Blu-ray player as a gift and I can't wait to get this new "Universe" Blu-ray release and see how much better it looks!"
