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.

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.

No question about the beauty of the subjects but it's really like something you would play in the background at a party or for an attentive small child or family. If you can get your family to sit still and watch then congrats.

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
