so far, from the people I've presented this to, they say is worth the price. last time I looked, an IMAX film of this quality would not be below $10, each.
Mother Earth 10-DVD Collection11/11/2008
This is an incredible DVD collection of ten of the most extraordinary IMAX films and pictures of our planet Earth. It is overwhelming in scope, breath and accomplishment. Narrated by two of the most recognizable voices, Charlton Heston and James Earl Jones, the journey is an experience of a lifetime. To say it is fantastic is not enough!
As good as you would expect! Educational, informative, interesting, and fun. Highly recommend it!
nothing compared to Planet Earth10/20/2008
This movie is nothing compared to planet earth. This is just a collection of old documentries narrated by fancy actors. I'm very much into nature but after seeing just 2 of these dvds, i didn't bothered to watch the others.
Imax to the Small Screen8/23/2008
Who wants to watch an Imax movie on a household television? For years the answer would have been --- almost no one. It is hardly the same experience. However, Mother Earth has bridged the gap and made watching the movie pleasant -- even at home on a small screen. The Africa and Australia disks are especially enjoyable as the camera angles across the sky with views on the vast expanses down below. All in all this is a great product. It came out at $99 retail and was offered at $69 by other online retailers. I bought it because Buy.com offered it on sale at $39. I would not have purchased it at $69. But after getting I would now be willing to pay the higher price if necessary. It is that good.
I haven't finished watching all ten disks yet, but if you have a good lcd tv this set is an eyefeast! Beautiful and breathtaking. I must admit I prefer Planet Earth to this set, BUT having both is just great....not to mention, Buy.com's price makes it hard to pass up. Soooo glad I ordered it! :-)
We enjoed the DVD's very much and would recomend it to every one who likes nature. Frank H.
What A Buy!7/27/2008
Okay, first of all, this may have been remastered from Hi-Def, but it's still a standard DVD set, not Blu-ray or HD-DVD. So, visually it won't compare to, say, "Planet Earth". But it's worth getting, if the price is right, which it was when I made my purchase. It's a stretch to rate plot and acting, since it's a documentary, but if you consider the plot to be the formation of the earth and the acting to be the narration, then "4's" are appropriate.
mother earth almost ultimate DVD7/25/2008
I found the lay out of the series a little under refined. That is kind of "cheesy"LOL, but each film is beautiful and breath taking. The music on a few of them was painful, but the video makes up for it in full. If you pay less then 40 bucks for this set you will be happy with your purchase...
I really expected exceptional video quality and sharpness. Being "remastered from HD" I guess is nowhere near the HD quality. I bought the HD versions of "Planet Earth" (narrated by Sigourney Weaver) and that is SOOOOO much better than this set it's amazing. This is "OK", but just not spectacular by any means. Grainy pictures (compared to HD at least). I was disappointed.
Stunning & highly informative. I highly recommend this series.
