Movie Reviews

A "Love-Letter" Monument to Carl Sagan's work
Michael B. Massa | Thornton, CO United States | 03/11/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Having seen this glorious program on PBS, I immediately purchased the video. I can't count how many times I've watched this. It is a love-letter to Carl Sagan and pays homage to our most beloved space-scientist. It also explains many things that most people take for granted - LIFE & TIME. How it evolved, branched out, died, and survived; and the millions of years it took to get us to where we are today. All the things on this planet, including us, are gloriously connected. Who needs religion when the wonders of the Universe is at your fingertips."
Are we are alone?
Nicoletta Carlone | Los Angeles | 03/01/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This beautifully written and intriguing scientific look at whether we are alone in our universe. This documentary looks at evolution of life on earth and the study of it, and compares it to how it might occured on other planets in our solar system beyond. A worth while well written informative documentary!"
