Product Description

This fascinating film focuses on the history, evolution and extinction of the dinosaurs. In larger-than-life fashion, you will explore a subject matter whose mystique and appeal are unquestioned. Dinosaurs are amongst the most fascinating animals to have ever walked the Earth. We are captivated by their enormous size and intrigued by the fact that they disappeared millions of years ago DINOSAURS: GIANTS OF PATAGONIA will take you on an unprecedented and unique journey into the world of the largest known dinosaurs and, in the process, explore some of the great paleontological discoveries of modern time. Done in close collaboration with the foremost scientists of the domain, the movie will show never seen before computer generated footage of the Giganotosaurus and the Argentinosaurus to name a few. At the moment of initiating this extraordinary project, one question comes to mind: "Is your screen big enough?" Narrated by Donald Sutherland.

I admit that I am biased when it comes to Dinosaurs, but IMAX has provided viewers with another great movie with this one, and the graphics are amazing. Every IMAX movie that I have seen has been a fantastic journey with a touch of education thrown in as well.

Do not buy this product if you have the same model of sony bluray player (BDVN890W) as I do, the disc will not play because it's too new and the firmware of the player doesn't support it,

HASH(0xa5a42ca8) out of 5 stars Dinausaurs Giants of Patagonia >> Reggun Comments (Amazon US) April 8 2011
By Reggun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I had seen few Science Fiction Movies (including 3D) at Imax theatres; and wandered & enjoyed the
Dinausaurs in science museums.
The quality of the dinosaurs in this 3D movie is quite impressive and their movements are so close to
being realistic as they are so believable. The 3D is good and the panoramic views shown are good as you
can get. The soundtrack was excellently in harmony to the movie itself and the narration is inviting and
captivating to listen to.
Overall, this is a high quality 3D movie especially the "Features" part added to this DVD (even it is in
2D); and you will never be tired in watching it multiple times. Forget about the "1 Star" critics as they
will never be capable of understanding the hard & great works undertaken by the filmmakers of this
movie; just order this 3D movie through Amazon.com and enjoy it whilst you can.

HASH(0xa5a42ef4) out of 5 stars These Dinosaurs May Be 3D, But The Narrative Is Pretty Flat March 4 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I have had a lifelong fascination with dinosaurs. Let me tell you, there are so many compelling and interesting programs or movies pre-existing within the marketplace--it's almost impossible to bring something new to the table. With the latest IMAX 3D creation "Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia," it seems an almost can't miss proposition. But you have to ask two questions: Is the narrative of interest or unique? Is the 3D a particular selling point?

Narrative: Unfortunately, there is not much new ground broken in this rather lackluster presentation. An expressionless narration by Donald Sutherland introduces us to a scientist and several creatures that seemed to inhabit the same area of South America. It is, in truth, a very dry presentation and the scientist lacks any real impact. The creature creation is nice (even if the beasts are quite familiar)--I'd say a step up from previous features such as "Dinosaurs Alive!" But again, if you watch these types of programs on TV--nothing here is particularly out of the ordinary. Even at 40 minutes, I was ready for this to hit its conclusion.

Features: A eclectic documentary is included that runs a tad longer than the actual feature. It combines some making-of information with some 3D technology information with plenty of footage not used in the film with some bizarre Monty Python type animation. It really just plays as an extension of the main film, so whether you find this an interesting addition or not depends on how much you enjoyed the film. I wouldn't choose to watch it again.

3D: The film graphics and vistas look fine. This can be a very pretty film even if it's dramatically inert. The precision of the 3D is most effective on these landscape shots, and the setting is absolutely lovely. Of course, there are a number of dinosaurs that poke their heads at you or walk over you. The still close-ups provide exciting detail and are crisp. Some of the movement shots, however, can have a bit of a shimmering effect. Though not groundbreaking, and with a fair share of ghosting, I thought this certainly wasn't the strongest 3D presentation. But honestly, without a compelling narrative--even the best 3D would lose impact. KGHarris, 3/11.

HASH(0xa5a4a150) out of 5 stars Dinosaurs recreated yet again May 10 2011
By Tyrone Rex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Ever since Steven Speilberg created Jurassic Park, there has been an ongoing movement to create more realistic dinosaurs on film/dvd. This is the latest of the wave of dinosaur documentaries. I must admit to liking Donald Sutherland's narration. He probably did not write it, but he delivers the dialog with appropiate poignancy.I am not sure if this is the best rendition of the dinosaurs yet, but it was worth the price. My only complaint is it was too short.(under an hour).

HASH(0xa5a4a2f4) out of 5 stars 3D Review by a 3D Connoisseur Dec 12 2011
By Keith Niemeyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
My ratings are based mainly on the QUALITY OF THE 3D, not the video content.

There are about 7 out of screen effects that extend about 10% of the way, from the screen to the viewer. 5 at 25% and 5 more insignificant effects extended to 30%.

Like most IMAX films, this one also has large differences between right and left views. The live footage 3D had the parallax pushed to the limit often and exceeded it a few times. The CG scenes are even worse. More sensitive people may feel eye strain or get headaches from watching this movie. However, if the 3D in other IMAX films were OK for you, this one should be too.

Active Glasses Users: 19 instances of crosstalk with 11 of them being pretty bad. (on my system)

MY 3D RATING = FAIR (poor, fair, good, very good, excellent)

Note: As far as the percentages go, everyone's eyes are different. What I see at 25% you may see at 15% or 35%. To fully realize how far something is out of the screen for you, pause on an effect and direct a partner with an extended finger to the tip of what you are seeing. You may be surprised.

HASH(0xa5a4a1c8) out of 5 stars Worst 3D trasnfer of anything currently available March 8 2011
By Blueoktober - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Because Blu Ray 3D is so new to the home theater format there aren't a lot of movies being released steadily. So I pick up anything that comes out so I can make use of my 3D setup. I have a Sony Bravia LED/LCD and although I have some ghosting in almost every movie I watch, it's never been too distracting. Until now. This disc is unwatchable. Every time a live person is on screen there are 3 of them - spread far apart - and the crosstalk is horrible. You seriously cannot watch this disc because it is such a mess. Some people say that it's subjective to your system setup, and I am not going to disagree, however I own every 3D release from Image Entertainment and for the most part they are all very good. The Ultimate Wave Tahiti is ASTOUNDING in both the BD quality and the 3D presentation. So it's not my setup for this disc. It's the horrible transfer.

Definitely rent before you buy if possible. I ended up watching it in 2D and while it was enjoyable, it was meant for 3D. I'd rather put on the old blue/red glasses and sit through it as I am sure it would have less ghosting and crosstalk.
