After ordering the HDscape Sampler HD-DVD (something I also purchased & reviewed on Amazon), I decided to take the plunge and order some more videos from HDscape. One of those videos happens to be Antarctica Dreaming, the one that stuck out the most on the entire sampler to me. I own the Xbox 360 HD DVD add on, and the video works like a charm. If it doesn't work properly, make sure you are signed into Xbox Live before starting the video. A firmware update might need to be installed that fixed menu glitches.

Its a dual format disc, meaning that it can be played on both regular DVD players & HD DVD players. The total runtime clocks in at just under an hour and a half, and can be viewed as either a nature documentary or an ambient music video with all of the same material. Contained within is breath-taking scenery and wildlife such as penguins, seals, and seabirds. It also features 6 additional mini-documentaries totaling a little over a half hour of bouns footage, and other written tidbits about the making of the film.

The video quality of the HD-DVD side ranges from average to above average. If you already own Planet Earth, know that it isn't better quality than that. But then again, I like to think of Planet Earth as the best looking HD-DVD to come out so far, so its difficult to compete with something so great. Antarctica Dreaming certainly has great footage and in some cases, excellent detail, but video issues are apparent if you are looking for them. Its most noticeable in scenes when it is snowing, and in some of the darker colors. Don't get discouraged though, it is only on a small percentage of the video and there is still plenty of things to like about the video. For what it is, I was truly impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good HD ambient July 15, 2007
The video quality in this title is extremely good. As noted in the review by D. Eidam, there are some minor compression artifacts in some of the darker background shots, but even then the foreground is very good. The selection of content was also very good, none of it seems like it should be on the cutting room floor. The inclusion of some time lapse landscapes of clouds was well done and in many places action is modestly slowed down during action.
The ambient music is very complimentary and does not detract as it has in some of the other HDScape titles.
After Planet Earth, this one is a definite buy (for anyone interested in nature content). If you just want to show off the capabilities of your HDTV, this could also accomplish that, but I'm sure other titles would end up ahead of this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most amazing movie yet on hd dvd June 28, 2007
This is the best hd dvd i have ever seen. It blows away planet earth and King Kong. It is simply breathtaking. I had a little issue on my XA-2 but had it play wonderfully on my xbox hd dvd players. The scene with the penguins it to cry for, the color details, are simply spectacular. Eye candy, the best kind to show off hd dvd , the best format in the world
