Movie Reviews

Donal Macintyre THE WEATHER
Joseph C. Taylor | Central California, USA | 11/07/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm a science teacher in California and have previewed in detail this work. For myself, I found the way Donal Macintyre organized the themes was ingeneous and caused the whole concept of weather to come alive to the point of being able to feel it and experience it in a powerful way. The fast pace, background music, true stories and historical background had a tendency to cause me personally to retain the details in vivid recollection

I'll be using this in my classes starting next week.

April 18th 2005: Well, the jury is back and the news is favorable. The video series was able to hold the attention of active Freshman in high school. Congratulations to Donal and his production crew."
OK but lacked great footage
John Ranold | NorthHollywood, CA United States | 10/15/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is well organized into four sections:Wind,Wet,Cold, and Heat. Wind; Covers twisters, Hurricanes , and jet streams
Wet; Covers Storms,flash floods, monsoons
Cold; ice storms etc..
Heat; deserts etc.. As a tutorial on weather, this DVD is great, but it didn't have any shocking footages such as giant waves crashing over piers or roofs flying off by the power of a hurricane. I found World Almanacs-Extreme Weather more interesting."
The Perfect Teaching Tool For Weather
J. Omland | South Dakota | 08/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video is great for middle school and high school earth science teachers. I have used it in the classroom with very positive results."
Entertaining
Randy Given | Manchester, CT USA | 03/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was an entertaining four hour series about the weather. It covers wind, wet (water), cold, and heat. Kinda like the Crocodile Hunter meets the weather. It is pretty good and doesn't have the "typical" BBC flavor that I expected. Especially good at grabbing the attention of kids as they learn. Fun for adults, too."
