I love the redwoods in California. They are mystical and breathtaking. This blu-ray gets me the closest I can get to the real thing. The high definition brings me present with the clarity that I feel when I'm in the woods themselves.
My living room gets transformed when I put it on. The music is wonderful but I can turn it off too and just immerse myself in the beauty and quiet of the forest. Totally calming and serene - I get to just be in it and it changes my whole day.
This series isn't meant to educate - it's for 'experiencing' the majesty of places that calm us, inspire us and bring us joy. It's a virtual experience that's exquisite.

I love watching movies like this in high def but I usually find the accompanying soundtracks to be shallow and tedious at best. Thankfully this disc has the option to watch the movie with the music or just the nature sounds! Perfect! I have not watched it with the music on (which I might, just to see what it is like) but I think if you are really into New Age soundscapes you might like it... But if not you can opt out of the music and let your mind wander to the sounds of birds and rain.

Of course, if you are expecting a travelogue or informative documentary with this title you will be disappointed. This is just video and audio of the ambient environment of the redwood forest (with music if you want.) There is no dialogue or text, just the scenery. You can think of it as a cheap and easy virtual vacation. I wouldn't say videos like these are intended for "party" watching, but for individual exploration or relaxation you can't beat it unless you get off the couch and actually go to the forest!

Some of the still scenes last too long. There are too many close-ups such as a stone in a streams or a cluster of pine leaves.

Whether you like this video or not will depend on your tastes, desires, and past experiences. This review is mainly based on my personal viewpoint, however I'll start by mentioning a couple of other possible views. As a vehicle for certain kinds of meditation, this video might be quite satisfactory. Or, if you want a taste of a redwood forest, and have no opportunity for a direct experience, this video is a good starting place. For these purposes, I'd offer a four-star rating. (If those goals match your intentions, you might want to stop reading here, and shift to one of the 4- or 5-star reviews already available!)

The "Digital Environments" or "Earthscapes" designation is a good description of the main goal of this video. It is an attempt to allow you to experience a redwood forest. The DVD offers the choice of a natural soundtrack or one that includes both natural sounds and music. The technical quality is excellent, presenting some of the sights and sounds you would encounter among the redwoods.

Now, to my personal evaluation. This video is "narrow": mostly a beautiful, but slow-paced and monotonous slide show. The videography is unimaginative and includes only a fraction of the visual experiences of an actual visit to a redwood forest. The mood of the video is resolutely contemplative: any spontaneity or eagerness to view a new environment have been carefully excluded. After watching half the video, one begins to find it exciting when a bug momentarily flies through the scene. The time lapse sequences of fog provide (only) a too-short interval of contrasting scenes, while not offering much relief to the slow pace of the video.

You owe it yourself to wrap your senses with this beautiful BluRay edition of California Redwoods. Truly a visually gluttony for the eyes and message of the ears.
As you watch the beautiful images fade, one in to the other, accompanied by the often reverential music treatment, one begins to understand why many call these
oldest living things a Cathedral to God. It is awe inspiring to stand in the presence of trees that were alive when Jesus and other historical figures walked the earth. If you have never visited this area, you can now with the aid of this beautifully crafted experience. I don't think you will be disappointed. Some may not prefer the music but the natural sounds envelop you as the 5.1 surround sucks you right into the visual feast. I play this disc a lot in my home theater. I think my plasma TV enjoys displaying the beautiful artful video photography. I recommend you do your High Definition TV a favor and get this experience for yourself. Enjoy a walk through the paths that wind among these sequoia gentle giants. You will smell the redwood forest, you will feel the moisture of the rain as it falls upon the leaves and ponds of water. As you gaze upon the shafts of sunlight filtered by three thousand year old growth you will feel small. It might even make you look to the heavens and wonder.

The Living Landscape Series of Blue Ray discs is unlike any other video series.

It's important to understand what these are, so you will not be disappointed. These are NOT entertainment videos, and NOT educational videos. If you are looking for a documentary ... look elsewhere. But one step more than that... these are also NOT videos that are designed to be "interesting" or to "keep your attention"... rather... they are extremely pleasant background videos.

Most people would probably not sit down and actively WATCH these videos from beginning to end (at least not more than one time, out of curiosity). They are meant to be a soothing... meditative... UNEVENTFUL... relaxing background images with very subtle nature sounds.

You should be advised that the camera pans across the up-close landscape images very, very slowly. It does not change from scene to scene quickly... it lingers at great length... hanging upon a single scene for with minimal camera movement for a few minutes at a clip.

It's nice to have this playing while you are reading, or cooking, or working on your computer... and just occasionally glancing up at the screen... rather than sitting and intently focussing upon the video as if it were some sort of "feature presentation" to watch. You may also find it helps to put you to sleep, or to calm an infant.

So honestly... this type of video is not for everyone... probably not for most people... but if you like the meditative and slow lingering of the camera upon water droplets tickling off a branch without the scene changing for two minutes or more... then maybe this is for you.

Personally, I like it. It's like the video form of Valium.

Reeeeeeeeelaaaaaaaaax. :)

The Olympic Rainforest and also this California Redwood Forest are my two favorite discs in this series.
