Includes a 37-minute making-of featurette, a seven minute history of MacGillivray Freeman Films, a Greg MacGillivray biography, and an MFF trailer gallery. A second disc offers The Living Sea in high-definition Microsoft Windows Media for Windows XP PCs.
Filled with life, the ocean covers seventy percent of the earth
The 1.78:1 DVD picture (reframed from its original IMAX format) is not anamorphically enhanced, but still looks really great. It exhibits a richly saturated picture with natural hues, bright Coast Guard reds, and every shade of ocean blue imaginable. The crashing surf and mist is perfectly captured above the water, and the depths of the sea are as solid as if you are there in your scuba gear. The picture is well defined, only occasionally appearing somewhat soft. This is a lovely picture that will liven up your home theatre display. No bothersome edge enhancement or pixelization were detected. (Suzanne Hodges)
The overall soundtrack experience is very entertaining with a lively mix of music genres, including music from Sting. Excellent
Reason #11 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
It's really quite simple; the main reason that I read Widescreen Review is because of the overall quality of content and the fact that I can rely upon the writers to provide an open-minded presentation of cutting edge technology as it unfolds in “real time.” I read Widescreen Review to stay informed, entertained, and to learn valuable facts that have the added benefit of saving me money through empowering me to make wise decisions regarding the features and capabilities of the equipment I choose to purchase. While my home theatre is modest, I admire, and am inspired by Widescreen Review's dedication to speaking of and working towards a golden standard for the reproduction of video in the home. I may not be able to afford the very top-of-the-line components, yet with proper information I have found that there is no reason to settle for anything less than the best than I can afford. I choose to read Widescreen Review because of the clarity of its purpose, as well as the consistent delivery of its mission and message. I enjoy reading it every month, it saves me money, and it makes me a more informed consumer with every passing issue. You really say it all in your title “The Essential Home Theatre Resource” and deliver on your promise with intelligent passion inside each issue. Every consumer responds to good value, and that's what I find in the combination of the information I learn, the money I save, and the manner in which I am entertained rather than sold to. Thanks for the fine job that you all do, I appreciate it and so do those I've shared your publication with.
