DATE REVIEWED: 08/24/2016

TITLE: Blue Planet

FORMAT: LaserDisc

TIME RIDDEN / FILM LENGTH: 43 minutes

DISTANCE RIDDEN WHILE VIEWING: 9.7 miles

TOTAL CINEMA MILES LOGGED: 4987.8 miles

SYNOPSIS: The diversity of life and nature are chronicled in IMAX format both from space and on the planet’s surface.

CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER:   We live on an astounding and fragile rock within the great void.  Don’t screw it up.

PROS AND CONS:  : An interesting film from the cultural perspective.  I recall when this film came out.  It was one of the few IMAX films in wide release and lot of people saw it just for the IMAX experience.  

The film is more reminiscent of the educational films that we saw in High School back in the 1970s with a high handed message regarding global warming (although they didn’t call it that back in the day, it was just pollution) and how we need to guard the planet and not strip it bare.
Still, it has its value and is enjoyable to watch while keeping things relatively simple and visually pleasing.

This film was viewed while exercising on my recumbent cycle.  A summary of my time spent working out on my journey through movie-land can be found on Strava.com.
