Dolphins

Overview

Dolphins appears in a bright, colorful transfer that is virtually free of defects or grain. The picture will obviously fall short of viewing the film on a giant IMAX screen, but it still provides an engaging home-viewing experience. The non-anamorphic, full-frame format works surprisingly well and should not disappoint the dolphin lovers who purchase this release. This release also succeeds in the audio department and offers a choice between two excellent transfers. The DTS version is a bit sharper and more ...

Overview

Dolphins appears in a bright, colorful transfer that is virtually free of defects or grain. The picture will obviously fall short of viewing the film on a giant IMAX screen, but it still provides an engaging home-viewing experience. The non-anamorphic, full-frame format works surprisingly well and should not disappoint the dolphin lovers who purchase this release. This release also succeeds in the audio department and offers a choice between two excellent transfers. The DTS version is a bit sharper and more complex, which helps to draw the viewer into the pristine environments; however, the 5.1 channel Dolby Digital transfer is also a very effective choice. One of the highlights of this type of McGillivray Freeman film is the inclusion of a lengthy behind-the-scenes documentary. Running for about 37 minutes, this feature provides an intimate, compelling look at the entire production. It includes interviews with all of the key cast and crew members, who exude a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for the project. Also worthwhile is the 11-minute "Marine Science: Exploring the Deep" featurette that provides a nice guideline for youngsters planning to enter this field. The remaining supplements include five previews, book advertisements, web links, and a biography of director Greg McGillivray. The trailers for Dolphins, The Magic of Flight, Stormchasers, The Living Sea, and The Discoverers are included.

    Excellent documentary

    If you like dolphins or freediving, this is the movie for you. Multiple scenes of humans swimming with dolphins, with no clumsy scuba gear.

    One of the best nature documentaries ever!

    This is one of the most inspirational nature videos of all time. Just the cinematography is enough to captivate any audience. It is a wonderful story and gives you a real good insight on the magic of dolphins and how important they are in our world. I have watched this in the privacy of my home and have showed it to my 5th grade class - everytime I watch it, it gets better. The music is also fantastic - Sting does a wonderful job here. I grabbed it as an impulse item and I am sure glad I did. Don't hesitate... trust me!
