America s National Treasures Blu-Ray

AN ASTONISHING JOURNEY IN STUNNING HIGH DEFINITION! ...... A Breathtaking view of America s Gorgeous Landscape!

Since then, all National Monuments have been designated by Presidents as their personal memorials which they sought to protect above all others.

For only $5 at Target, I must say this Blu-ray packed in a lot of beautiful landscapes for the money. The older shots (not as sharp in definition as the newer ones) were narrated by actor Bo Svenson with the later ones by Jordan Murphy. Each location was sited on the map at the intoduction, which is helpful for travelers. I especially like to watch the desolation of the vast Great Plains where the wild buffalos used to roam and feel the solitude the deserts provide as respite for the harried life of urban dwellers. More coverage of the western Black Hills and the Badlands would have been welcomed. But of course this would only make the whole video overly long to watch considering its already lenghty 7 hours of runtime as is. Like the Grand Canyon, these other magnificent desert National Parks would just make another great Blu-ray videos by themselves.

We bought this from Borders (sorry Amazon!) for a mere $5. I figured $5 is worth the risk that this set would turn out dull and boring. Au contraire! This DVD set is spectacular! Our family has been riveted to each episode, which highlights social history, ecology, and geographic past of the region. I can't believe this cost me only a few Washingtons, because this set is a pure treasure for American history/geography enthusiasts. I only wish they had more volumes, because I'd buy them all. Can't recommend enough...

These doco's are produced on the cheap. Most of the content is interviews with a Parks Officer at each site. There is a lot of programming packed into the two Blue Rays so the quality of picture is extremely poor in full hd, and the color is somehow washed out. Some of the shots are quite amateurish with the non stabilised camera held while the guy walked. I worked my way through most of it and learned a little here and there. I gave it away to a charity shop.
Each segment starts with a virtual tour which is not a virtual tour. Then there is a set format for the next two bits. I found it boring as all hell, the narrator has a sonorous voice that is really artificial. Want to shoot yourself? Watch this first.
There was a well researched programme on the history of American national parks on our local television some time ago, that was great, this isn't it. Don't believe the positive reviews.

There are so many really wonderful documentaries out that and this one is not going to be getting a lot of great reviews I am sure. It is not bad but could have been much better. I enjoyed it and did learn a bit from it but I think it suffered by not having enough production value even though having some great subject matter. It was worth the money as it was not expensive so I am not disappointed.

The narrators are appropriate and interesting! The photography is very nice!
National Parks are much more interesting than the National Monuments!

These were an inexpensive way for me to try out my new Blu-ray player which I know would be playing my existing DVDs most of the time.

They don't have quite the "polish" of a National Geographic special, but I think that works to their advantage. I didn't feel quite so emotionally led by the nose through all the great scenery. The info about the geological origins and subsequent history of these landmarks is presented in a no-nonsense fashion by people who are not Hollywood actors trying to show off. I think I bought several discs in this series and was surprised by how many hours it takes to go through them all. You definitely can't watch them all in one sitting (I tried).

I was rather disappointed...it wasn't quite what I expected. And for being Blue-Ray, the color wasn't as outstanding as my other Blue-Rays (it looked the same as any other DVD), and there were no subtitles.

Not very pleased with this video. Low budget, difficult to follow. Not attention grabbing. Did give some information about places around America. However, I was expecting just a bit more.
