You HAVE got to check out Planet Earth by BBC. This movie has footage of animals in the wild that has never been seen before (and I am NOT usually into the national geographic/wildlife thing at all). It is a 5 disc set: I recommend the first disc because it is an overview of shots filmed all over the world. The most impressive shot visually is the shark catching a seal (which apparently took 18 months to catch on film)....and is INCREDIBLE.
The most interesting shot is an ariel view of a pack of wild dogs in south Africa hunting an impala. Also amazing. If you can check out the HD dvd version and watch it on a big screen, go for it. If not, call Jeff and Whit, and go to their apartment to watch it! ;)
Bjorn and I got the chance to watch it last night when we went Bjorn's uncles' latest completed buliding project, a $2 million + house in Semiahmoo. The house features a theatre room, complete with 2 rows of theater seats, as well as theater lighting that automatically dims as you turn the projector system on. It was THEE best designed, state of the art, way over the top, deluxe design we have seen. Bjorn and I were proud to be related to the Eides of Eide Homes construction company.
