Movie Reviews

One of the best of the ambient background series
Barbara B. | Oregon, USA | 04/14/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have a large collection of this type of disk and this is one of the best, both for the quality of the images and the content itself. What you have to understand is that this is NOT a documentary or a travelogue -- it is "eye candy" normally used as background visuals (with or without music and sounds). It has soothing and beautiful shots of hummingbirds, waterfalls, and other natural settings but it isn't really meant to be "watched" like a movie. Put it on in the background while you're in the room reading or having a party and allow it to loop continuously. At least that's what I do, and it's spectacular -- I look up now and then and always seem to see something I didn't see the first 1098 times I watched it!"
Meant for relaxation
wisdomstar | Michigan | 03/10/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The whole point of the living landscapes blu-ray series is to have a tape where you can relax - choose either nature sounds or music - no voice over telling you how all this is disappearing because we're bulldozing it down or shooting the animals. The program is about an hour long but it loops around and plays again so that if you are napping you are not disturbed. Or as another reviewer suggests, you can have it on when you have guests over as background. It is just what it says it is - a living landscape that you can visit without needing shots, a passport and 4 hours of security checks at the airport. highly recommended."
Amazing photography
Susan M. Campbell | Sebastopol, California USA | 03/07/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I will watch this one over and over. It is so full of beauty and unusual sights. The photographer had to have such patience to get these shots. I could never see stuff like this as a traveler or tourist. I saw insects, birds, and bigger animals that I did not know existed. And they all seemed to exist in such perfect harmony with their surroundings. Watching this DVD is a truly inspiring experience. I kept thinking over and over, "how did he get those shots?""
If you love hummingbirds and waterfalls
Thomas | 01/18/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I've been to Costa Rica five times because it is a beautiful country with friendly people. So I got this thinking it would remind me of the country. Well, it does have scenes of nature that appear to be in Costa Rica. The shots are so close you can't tell where it was filmed. One particular waterfall seems to be a favorite as it is repeatedly shown (at least three times). It also appears that the camera was set up in a small clearing and a few birds were caught passing in flight because different birds are seen at different times in the production but the setting is identical (including the framing).
As I was viewing it I decided it would be a perfect DVD to play in the background for a dinner party, open house, or quiet evening at home. The detail on the birds, frogs, and fauna are amazing.
Yes, I'd buy it again."
