Movie Reviews

Beyond Dinosaurs!
2historybuffs | Princeton, NJ United States | 04/27/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This BBC series is fantastic and we highly recommend them for adults and children who are interested in prehistoric life. My kids are enthralled with these creatures and -- at 5 and 3 years old -- can rattle off their multi-syllabic names with ease! Overall a wonderful learning experience.

Caution: Some violent or scary images in the natural world, as well as mating scenes, which are brief. One episode deals with the evolution of man in a way that may conflict with your beliefs."
A forgotten past..
Betty L. Wilkins | peoria,Il. | 12/20/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When people think of Earth's past, it is usually the dinosaur age of which they think. They tend to forget the fact that the Earth has a huge history of which that Age was only a small part. This encompasses that portion of history often glossed over in favor of the rise of humans, and the very strange and fascinating creatures that existed even before we arrived and existed with us for a time before going extinct. While we might remember the Wooly Mammoth, the Cave Bear and the Saber-toothed Cat, We don't remember the Hyenadon or the Intelidont, or the Gastornis, the monster bird that ate early horses. This is a trip into a topsy turvey world that is strangely fascinating and fills in that gap between the Dinosaurs-and us."
An excellent addition to the Walking With collection.

"I enjoyed Walking With Dinosaurs so much I decided to watch this series as well, and I was not disappointed. The special effects were excellent, and the information about the ancient creatures was presented in such an interesting way I practically forgot it was a documentary. Highly recommended."
Excellent graphics and narration
Mom of twins | NC | 04/27/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video is designed and narrated as if you are watching a documentary of creatures that are alive today, only its prehistoric beasts, many of whom most of us have never heard of before. My 5 yr old boys love this video, and have watched it over and over again. Their favorite part is the 2nd disc "Making Of" video, which shows not only the technical aspects of making the video, but also how scientists know so much about these beasts and how they lived. This DVD is even better and more engaging than "Walking with Dinosaurs." Excellent graphics are complimented with interesting and informative narration."
