Format: DVD
I felt so happy when I was able to return this DVD for a refund. I stopped collecting IMAX DVD's without renting them first after the experience I had with this one.
The things that are bad with this one: 1. Poor Video 2. Lousy narration(worst ever for an IMAX). 3. Not at all interesting

I wish I had listened to the reviews and not purchased this dvd. It is a primer on evolution, not an enjoyable, interesting way to learn about the rainforest. It would be better if you could mute the speaking, but you can't without losing the rainforest sounds as well. Plus, the words are printed on the screen, so you just can't escape it. Waste of money.

Wow, COOL music at the end of this film!
I just love this movie. I grew up in rain forests of South America and worked in them for several years as a geologist. It's just magical!
The film is made to joung audinces and viewrs. It is not made to sutisfy the EGO of those looking for too much scientific explanations. Just try to enjoy the film as something nice and useful. At least it teaches the horrible truth of deforestation. And we have to remember that these forests are consumed mainly by the rich and advanced countries. Most of what this planet produces (around 80%) is consumed by the rich countries (20% of the population) of North America and Europe. We, the human species are just a biological pest and a disease to the planet. And I am not "MR SMITH" of that stupid film THE MATRIX. I am just a scientist (geologist) who loves nature and the forests.
I love the film of THE TROPICAL RAINFOREST. The voice of the narrator is very funny, I think. And the music is cool! Chevere!

This movie had poor content, I know more facts about the Rainforest than this movie presented. I don't think an overview of the Rainforest will cut it, should be more in-depth!

It would be better advised if you rent this film from Netflix first before you make your purchase here. As the other reviewers have noted, the transfer from film to DVD can vary, and in this particular case, it was clearly poorly done. It's a terrible shame that this beautiful IMAX film was given such a second-rate transfer.
Normally I would end it here, but as some perceptive readers might have noticed, a vocal creationist has entered our midst, voicing his objections to the theory of evolution being used so matter-of-factly. Now I certainly don't want to belittle Dan, he can certainly believe or disbelieve whatever he wishes. However he went beyond just stating his discomfort with the theory and went out of his way to draw out a couple objections to Evolution, in effect distorted the evidence and philosophical foundations of the theory. Thus, here entails my problem.
Dan complains that the IMAX film, while giving references to evolution, never attempted to provide evidence that evolution had taken place. Is this really surprising? Perhaps Dan should ask himself if just conceivably that the theory might be so well established in modern biology, so well documented in scientific literature, that no rational person questions it today (i.e. such as cell theory, or population genetics), therefore any exposition on "proving" evolution would simply become superfluous. Just an idea Dan.
If Dan is so dissatisfied with the rather simplistic explanations given in the film, perhaps he should actually read some of the evolutionary literature that is readily available (here at Amazon no less). A great text would be Douglas J. Futuyma's _Evolutionary Biology_, or Ridley's _Evolution_, and a few excellent popular works would include Steve Jones' _Darwin's Ghost_, Kenneth Miller's _Finding Darwin's God_, Donald Johanson's _From Lucy to Language_, and anything by Steve Gould or Richard Dawkins.
