My personal favorite was the Surfin' Dolphins short feature which had nice shots of dolphins playing in the surf off an Australian beach set to lively music.
The cinematography in all the features is excellent and captions (when turned on) clear and easy to read.
But... What I was hoping for in the main feature was a more relaxing, less rushed, somewhat aquarium-like, view of underwater coral and fish of the reef -- what I got was more of a very well done streaming catalog of short clips of each fish or coral.
Rather than a more continuous flow of images, the main feature presented a view of one scene or fish species for 3 to 7 seconds before cutting to another fish or angle for another 3 to 7 seconds, over and over again.
This gave me the feeling that I was reviewing a substantial catalog of excellent views of coral and individual fish species rather than the more relaxing views that I had desired.
I was hoping for something that would bring back memorys of past snorkeling trips (Sea of Cortez) -- holding a view of a continuous and/or contiguous background longer or following a school of fish longer. But, too many scene changes too fast...
So, partly based on my expectations (perhaps unwarranted), I have to give this DVD 3 stars.Read more ›
There is an education feature of sorts too, if you turn on subtitles, they show up to name the underwater creature(s).
Excellent job all around. Great to view, great to relax too, great to learn from. Can't go wrong with this disk. BTW, I'm just a happy consumer, not associated with the maker/manufacturer.
This can be played in the background or for regular viewing. My one year old will watch off and on and likes the music. It is relaxing, beautiful and educational at the same time.
I highly recommend. I wish there were more DVDs like this.
