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

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.

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.

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.

Just in time for the Holidays, selling for $50 at Walmart and Costco, comes this mix of 20 individually packaged films, most averaging 40 minutes each, in a maximum size package, 12" x 8" x 6", so make sure you have enough shelf space to hold this. While the photography is great in most of these films, the best ones were Cosmic Voyage, The T-Rex, Galapagos and the 3 nature films. One of the problems with this set is that 8 of the films are about SPACE, and 7 of the SPACE films are so similar, they use a lot of the same shots, views of the Space Station, astronauts floating in free space, the space shuttle landing and taking off and way too many interviews. And then some of the Space films keep using shots that take up only 1/4 of the screen with a black background through quite a deal of the movie, it may look good on an IMAX screen, but it turns a 40" or 50" flat screen into a 10" screen. And some of the films depend too heavily on B/W photographs, like the Mark Twain film and many of the films are filled with interviews and crowd shots. When I first experienced IMAX in the theatres, it was a lot more thrilling and interesting than what is in this package, there were roller coaster rides, great scenic thrills such as flying over rivers and mountains, more like entertainment than just plain documentaries. There are some good films in this set as I initally noted, yet I would think that most people would have preferred more nature films, films that would appeal to children, it seems as if some of the less popular selling IMAX films were thrown into this set, a better package would have had more variety.

This is what you get:

SPACE
. Space Station
. Mission to Mir
. Blue Planet
. Destiny in Space
. Cosmic Voyage
. First City in Space
. The Dream is Alive
. Hail Columbia!
MARINE LIFE
. Deep Sea

Although there were some enjoyable pieces, most of the films were cheesy and very poorly done. It may be necessary to view them on an IMAX screen to appreciate them, but in general these were a waste of time.

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.

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.

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
