5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it August 25, 2009
Format:DVD
First of all, please be patient
with my english writing skill. I am
not from a english speaking country.

I am a great fan of IMAX films.
These collection contains a few of the greatest IMAX movies ever made.
So - if you dont have any of these movies or only a very few...
there's no reason to leave this mega box in the store.
I got my for only 22,99 $ ... unbelievable - this is a 20 film box !!
Normaly you can't get two of the film series for this price.

If you know what IMAX is - be sure , you will be satisfied to watch any of the movies
any time you want. There is only one downer i know :
unfortunally there is no 72 x 53 ft screen in the box .... so ... dont forget
to check out the newest IMAX films in cinema.

Hope this will help
Bye,
Ingo

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the right price May 22, 2009
By Sh Ka
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Amazon independent sellers sell this for $30; not pay more that this, though. Some of the movies seem like filler movies, although I haven't watched them all yet. Still, for $[30], you end up paying $1.50 a film, which is pretty darn good. And most of these films are very educational and visually stunning.

Also note these films are presented in 4:3 or standard presentation. This is in proportion to the IMAX 70mm film.

All in all, great for the family if you pay the right price for it.

3.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTED September 11, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I did a quick search for 3D movies to check out my new 3D TV and was in too much of a hurry --- I did not read the description closely enough and thought I was getting a 3D set but that was not the case. OK I was careless and the non-3D was clearly my fault. The DVDs say the IMAX 70mm picture was reformated to fit the TV --- The format is old fashion and not even wide screen. The content of the set is good & interesting --- just wish the awesome IMAX format would have been carried forward to make an awesome DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good..quality of film poor August 6, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love IMAX films, however, these weren't their best and the quality is not very good---sound and picture is below average. Difficult to hear the narrator in many of the films---also, film is not bright or as clear. Price was very low but the product was also. Disappointed---maybe purchasing Blu-ray individual copies is best.

4.0 out of 5 stars 20-Film IMAX DVD Collection Rocks September 12, 2013
Format:DVD
Wow, IMAX lovers will appreciate this collection. There are 20 IMAX films on 20 DVD discs narrated by various celebrities. Be warned that this collection is not in true 3D and the films are not in widescreen format. I enjoy most of these films but they do vary in quality. There isn't much in the way of bonus content.

20 IMAX Films:
1. Space Station, 2. Mission to Mir, 3. Blue Planet, 4. Destiny in Space, 5. Cosmic Voyage, 6. First City in Space, 7. The Dream is Alive, 8. Hail Columbia!, 9. Deep Sea, 10. Into the Deep, 11. Galapagos, 12. Survival Island, 13. Hidden Dimension, 14. Secret of Life on Earth, 15. China: the Panda Adventure, 16. Mountain Gorilla, 17. NASCAR: the IMAX Experience, 18. Mark Twain`s America, 19. Fires of Kuwait, 20. T-Rex: Back to the Cretaceous

Buy this collection. For $55 you can't beat the price (but it is now out of print). Blu-ray releases of many IMAX films are also sold separately.

4.0 out of 5 stars The IMAX Collection January 26, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a gift for my son and he said they were very good. They are mostly half hour films, he has a large screen and they showed up well. He liked the variety of subjects.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for the amount of movies but that's all May 6, 2013
By Tim
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I thought they would be widescreen, but they are not. Very disappointing that I have to change the format on my 55" to view it without the black side bars. Thought IMAX would default in the widescreen format. I guess I can't complain when you get 20 IMAX movies for the price, but will read all the descriptions before I ever order anything like this again
