Generally I was just looking for a fireplace video to play on my plasma HD TV set... My new home does not have a fireplace like the house I just sold... so I thought around Christmas it would be nice to still see and hear a fire... even if just on TV. The guys that shot this must have ADHD... because they can't stay on a shot for even one minute. They constantly keep cutting into close-ups and back out to a wider shot. It sort of ruins the fireplace atmosphere. The other videos are the same. I thought if they could just stay on one shot the aquarium fantasy would seem real... I mean, what are aquarium fish anyways? They are behind glass, so if the guys that made this video had just kept one shot it would have made the viewer imagine they were actually looking at an aquarium. But once again they can't keep one shot... consstantly cutting to close-ups. All in all the samples comprise less than 30 minutes of video in all... way to short to be worth buying. The footage was way short of spectacular... if you want that.. buy Planet Earth in HD.

Nice, but

on 4/28/2007

Having problems running the HD-DVD side of the disk in the Xbox-360 HD-drive. Gets to the main menu and then unable to select options to play chapters. Regular dvd side on flip side of disk runs with no problem although HD was the main reason for picking this up. Still trying to troubleshoot but hopefully will not have to return if I can get it up and running.....
