Wild Australia - The Edge (Large Format)
John Green (XI)
An Australian Classic that will take your breath away.
Wild Australia - The EDGE was filmed entirely in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. It was commissioned for and is shown exclusively at THE EDGE CINEMA at Katoomba, and has to be seen to be believed. This film will take you to places that you could never hope to experience, and will take you to ancient protected forests, through mountain ravines, abseil down gushing waterfalls, swim through ...
Sedona - The Spirit of Wonder (Large Format)
CAV Distributing, 2003
"The acting... the acting."
Sedona: The Spirit of Wonder (Frances Grumman, 1998) Sedona, Arizona is one of the most fantastically beautiful spots on the planet, and a hotbed of tourism. To capitalize on that, the town of Sedona built a SuperVue theater and commissioned a short movie about the town (one hesitates to call it a documentary) and the surrounding red rocks. First-time director Frances Grumman was behind the ...
SOS Planet (3-D Large Format)
Sling Shot, 2003
Great Effects...but is Environmentally Focused
Sure this DVD is about environmental issues (reason for 4 stars), global warming, ect. but the special effects are spectacular! You have anything from a giant octopus popin' out of the screen at you, to monkeys throwing fruit through your tv screen! It is true most of the action is CGI, though there are a few live feeds. Overall, beyond the plot, its a fun 40 mins. Great for the whole family, ...

Thrill Ride - The Science of Fun (Large Format)
Sony Pictures, 2000
Media Tech for Students and ahem Older Community
Just saw this on video from library and ordered DVD from Amazon. The best media experiences lately both entertain and educate, if subtly. Think back to "Back to the Future" which Michael J. Fox described as "a comedy-action-fantasy-adventure-coming-of-age film", and "a very life-affirming story about relationships, as well as a 'what if?' movie which audiences love" I rate "Thrill Ride" high ...
The Bumblebee Flies Away [ NON-USA FORMAT, PAL, Reg.0 Import - Australia ]
Description Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings, Sin City) stars as Barney Snow, an amnesiac teen who retains few memories about himself. When he's not trying to recoup memories during therapy, he spars and bonds with other patients, including wheelchair-bound prankster Billy the Kidney and fast-fading cancer sufferer Mazzo, whose twin sister, Cassie (Rachel Leigh Cook), takes a shine to Barney. A sensitive and honest coming-of-age story that ...
The Eruption of Mount St. Helens! (Large Format)
SlingShot Entertainment, 2000
I bought this video, because I teach Earth science in High School, and was looking for good REAL video footage of the kinds of incidents about which I teach. I remember when Mt. St. Helens exploded, and there was a VERY cool IMAX video where they flew through towns that were covered with LOTS of ash. This was not the video I expected, but it is still VERY good - a little too much slow-motion ...
The Greatest Places (Large Format)
C.A.V. Distribution, 1999
Majestic Landscapes in Seven Locations
Greatest Places: IMAX is collectible and awe-inspiring, however, it is a very quick journey to vast expansive landscapes that will require further exploration. Once you are introduced to seven of the most amazing places on earth, you can then look up additional IMAX movies. The footage in this DVD captures vibrant moments in stunning beauty. An elephant rises from a river in a display of pure ...
The Format: Live at the Mayan Theatre
Nettwerk Records, 2007
Almost was good as seeing them
I've seen The Format a hand full of times and they've been fantastic every time. This DVD is the next best thing to seeing them live it does a fantastic job at capturing how amazing and energetic their live shows are.
The Day Today 2-DVD Set [ NON-USA FORMAT, PAL, Reg.2&4 Import - Great Britain ]
From the opening line of episode 1 "The headlines tonight; Bottomley (a member of the former conservative British Government) refreshed after three days on cross" this is the best comedy/satire show you will find on DVD. Dating from 1994 it is mostly a vicious parody of UK BBC TV program Newsnight, as presented by Jeremy Paxman. Nothing is sacred in this show, presenters, events, politicians ...
Alien Adventure (3-D Large Format)
Sling Shot, 2001
A wonderful effort!
O.k. look.....if you are watching or thinking of watching Alien Adventure in 2-D, you are really just wasting your time. This movie is enhanced 3Xfold by viewing it in 3d--and it is simply amazing! Alien Adventure is the funnest DVD I own (and I have 100's), simply because of its amazing 3d effects. Lights off, stereo sound cranked up, and with LCD glasses on, Alien Adventure is quite a ...

Bears (Large Format)
Sling Shot, 2002
Surprisingly gorgeous and high quality
I got this DVD on a sale where it was marked down to about $5.00. I didn't expect it to be high quality. I was pleasantly surprised. I've watched wildlife films and read wildlife pubs for nearly 40 years and rarely have I seen such beautiful cinematography. One reviewer panned this film and it was an unwarranted critique in my view. There was plenty of information, eye-popping photography, ...
The Key (1958) [ NON-USA FORMAT, PAL, Reg.2 Import - Spain ]
When, oh when, will this great movie be released?
I love this movie - it caused me to read the wonderful book on which it's based (by Jan de Hartog) and then to read other books by the author. The acting is simply superb with a wonderful cast - William Holden, Sophia Loren, Trevor Howard, Oscar Homolka, Bernard Lee (yes, M from the James Bond films) and Kieron Moore. Directed by the reat Carol Reed (The Third Man, The Fallen Idol, Odd Man Out ...
Romuald and Juliette ( Romuald et Juliette ) ( Mama, There's a Man in Your Bed ) [ NON-USA FORMAT, PAL, Reg.2 ...
A perennial favourite.
Written and directed by Coline Serreau this is an atypical French film - fast, witty, irreverent and with an unconventional beauty at its centre. Revered French film actor Daniel Auteuil (Manon des Sources, Un Coeur en Hiver) turns in a pitch-perfect comic performance as Romuald, a thriving wealthy executive, who is on top of the world having just been made President of his company. Firmine ...

Beavers (Large Format)
Image Entertainment, 2000
Beautiful movie, extremely well done and entertaining
We saw this on TV and I looked for this DVD immediately. This is without a doubt the best wildlife documentary I have ever seen. The narration, cinematography, and images that are captured here are nothing short of astonishing. Our entire family was completely captivated by this. We are not huge Beaver fans, either, but when you see something like this, you can't help but be completely ...
Tali-Ihantala 1944 ( Tali-Ihantala ) [ NON-USA FORMAT, PAL, Reg.2 Import - Sweden ]
Outstanding movie about THE decisive battle for Finland in WW2
First, for those not familiar with the Russo-Finnish War, the battle of Tali-Ihantala (June 25 to July 9, 1944) was part of the Continuation War (1941-1944), fought by Finland, supported by Germany, against the Soviet Union and is to date the largest battle in the history of the Nordic countries. The battle ended in a decisive Finnish victory. In the battle, 6 Finnish Divisions (5 Infantry and ...
The Red Riding Trilogy - 3-DVD Set ( Red Riding: 1974 / Red Riding: 1980 / Red Riding: 1983 ) [ NON-USA ...
engrossing and brilliantly executed British police drama
I bought this 3 DVD set subsequent to reading a rave review if it in the New York Review of Books. I can echo the enthusiastic comments; this BBC (Channel 4) drama is great viewing. Be warned that these gritty, sombre, uncompromising episodes (with three separate directors) are not pleasant viewing and will not appeal to those seeking a "nice night's entertainment". The 3 episodes are ...
