I never found wildlife documentary particularly interesting but when i was in 7th grade I went to the movies with my friends and watched this, and it was probably the best cinema experience I have ever had in my little life.
While there is a lot of excellent cinematography on display here, BBC's Blue Planet remains the gold standard against which underwater documentaries are to be judged. Oceans, while obviously well-intentioned, is disappointingly meandering, lacking any clear direction and, in its original French cut, features the most pretentious, dribbling narration imaginable. Still, it does look good...
Beautiful! And the narration is only occasionally annoying and there is almost no anthropomorphizing of the critters (which kept me away from last years Disney Earth Day movie). See this in a big screen if you can just for the stunning images.
As with W Mig, the team sets itself well ahead of pack, showing us what can be achieved with today's media if one is inspired and determined to go beyond our current limits. The film is breathtaking, moving and nourishing to the soul, as the sheer force, vibrancy and urgency of life shine through the screen and remind you what it is to feel the essence of life. The soundtrack perfectly enhances the stunning visuals.
