The disc's image quality is superb, sharp with saturated colors and pristine full-dimensional surround sound. Both the image quality and audio quality rank among the best DVDs I've purchased.
The content is excellent as well. No touristy cheesy travel bait like some TV shows and also none of the dry geography lectures like some documentaries, the program manages to educate, entertain and wow at the same time.
Did I say it wows? That is one of the things that makes IMAX movies so unique, their camera immerses the viewer in the middle of the action, pulls you by the hand right into the scene, and sometimes dazzles with sheer stunning photography. Though only 43 minutes long it packs a lot of visual eye candy and fascinating facts in but never feels rushed.
3D never really took off in TV's, which is a shame, and the manufactures recently stopped making the hardware. While not every show is 3D worthy there are some, like this one, that make me happy my equipment has that option. Keep in mind that the 3D version has three viewing options ... Blu-Ray on one disc, standard def DVD on a separate disc and 3D encoded on the Blu-Ray disc ONLY if you have a compatible 3D Blu-Ray DVD player, a compatible 3D TV and compatible 3D glasses. If you have a compatible playback setup the 3D quality of this disc is very good but its not the kind of 3D effect that will make you jump out of your seat like in Avatar. The 3D effect is used sparingly and a couple of times they use it for some throwaway shots. But when it is good it is very, very good.
If you are buying this movie for educational content you might have to watch it a couple of times because they transition so abruptly between the various religions who lay historic claim to Jerusalem and some of imagery may look similar if you are not a student of those religions, sometimes the differences tend to run together. Maybe that is by design?
The screenshots are from the movie's internet site where there is a wealth of background information, behind-the-scenes clips including VR, 3D and hi-res photos.
Again this is a total waste of money. I had been subscribing to the film's Facebook and email lists. I had been wanting to see all this great overhead footage they said they captured. Bah! Junk.
Who said 3D is dead?
All is happen at first stage when you make a movie: the quality of the filming, the quality of the audio recording and obviously the quality of the writing. Jerusalem gets all inclusive.
This bluray is non only a deep lesson of culture but also a reference example about what all the editor company should follow. Great subject, extremely good image quality, one of the best 3D blu ray ever.
