The replaced copy of Emperors of Antarctica was superb and did not cause any difficulties. As a result it was most enjoyable and proved to be a good selection on your part.
I found this documentary very interesting and extremely beautiful, fascinating and quite historic
Wasn't the flick I thought, but was still very interesting. NZ doco, thought I was ordering the Morgan Freeman narated film. Was still very impressive doco.
wonderful documentary. Well worth children veiwing
I was moved to tears when I saw the hardship these lovely creatures have to endure. Their habitat now is threatened by global warming and maybe all their survival effort was in vain.
Short, sweet to the point and very informative not so much on the penguins but on exploration history. I nice change.
Was interesting to see how the penguins relate and mate, a few sad parts, like when the father has to hand over the new born chick to its mother. I would recommend this documentary.
Very good, but the March of the Penguins was more atmospheric and penguin focussed. This film showed man having difficulty coping with the environment, even with plenty of the best equipment! And the penguins have their coping built-in. Lets' hope it continues to keep them alive.
‘Emperors of Antarctica’ is a delightful and entertaining film. Who can watch these impressive, dignified giants of the penguins clan walking/waddling, or belly-sledging across the frozen surfaces in their indomitable pursuit of their mates without a smile on the face? Or not admire their paternal ‘baby-sitting’ duties whilst the mate is away restocking the larder. And the spectacular insulated ‘nursery’ at the parental feet, well protected by the raising and lowering of the ‘safety curtain’. Their comical occasional territorial ‘spats’ when ‘flipper-fighting’ a transgressor had me in stitches. The hardships they face in the very worst of weather conditions – that even the hardy camera crew can only stand for short period at a time arouses mixed feelings of compassion and admiration.
All in all, an very interesting and entertaining film that leaves one with something to think about.
Fair documentary,but it should not have taken up so much time talking about/showing the researchers. The STARS,that is the Emperor Penquins had only a supporting role.Bit disappointing,but still enjoyable.
I loved this movie, very interesting.
I was a bit disappointed to be honest. It might have worked better on the big screen or maybe we are spoilt for nature documentaries these days.
Nature it is quite incredible and very interesting the second one on the disc is just as interesting
