Pretty views but....really? Did they have to go there?
20 December 2007 | by kheraldSee all my reviews

I purchased this on Blu-ray earlier today and watched it with my dad tonight expecting it to be something like the wonderful Planet Earth series. We really enjoyed the first half of the film due to the high quality of the IMAX cameras. The views of the Earth from the space shuttle were magnificent to say the least. But then at the half-way point the documentary took a 'left' turn and became nothing more than a tree--hugger/bleeding-heart piece on how Man is destroying the planet. I mean it was just "Ozone layer this"... and "Rain forest that"... and "Man is making extinct hundreds of undiscovered species every minute". They literally said that; "Undiscovered". OK, if they're undiscovered then how do we know we're causing they're extinction?

Listen, I'm not the kind of guy that would throw his Big Mac wrapper out the window of his Hummer while driving through a nature preserve but... Come on! Do these people really think they need to dupe Americans in to buying their liberal B.S. by marketing it as "A spectacular look at Earth like you've never seen before"?! I am sure that some people will/do love this documentary for everything it stands for. But if you're like me and you don't want to be preached at by someone who feels that the best thing you can do for Mother Earth is to kill yourself... then don't bother. Somehow, I'm getting my money back!
