Before Texas was a State...Texas was a nation.
If you are an IMAX movie junkie, this one is great. While it doesn't have the panache of the Cirque d'Soleil IMAX movie, or the relevance of the "Space" or "Dream Is Alive" type-series, it is great eye candy and has a vast array of visual delights from the State of Texas. Texas is so huge that it boggles the mind. Did you know that horses that ran in vast herds were because the Spaniards brought them over and abandoned them? But the art of horsemanship was mastered by the Mexican Vaqueros? Before kids ride horses in rodeos, they practice by using bucking sheep! It is hilarious to see a 5 year old get bucked off of the sheep and rescued by the rodeo clown. Excellent narration, beautiful visuals, and in general, a very appealing ad to want to go visit. Put this one at the top of your list if you are working your way down the IMAX movie list. If you love the rural way of life, it's a can't-miss.
