Life DVD Set Review

Life on planet Earth is absolutely amazing. In the Life DVD Set, Oprah Winfrey narrates the amazing stories of some of the countless living creatures that call our planet home.


This Thing Called Life

Each of the four DVDs in this boxed set includes episodes packed with spectacular images and tons of information that let you explore the existence of the varieties of life in over 200 different species spread over seven continents. The project took over three years to film and used 70 camera crews in 3,000 hours of shooting time. The footage is breathtaking. Life shows you plants, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and mammals up close.


Tough Times

Through the DVDs, you learn that life on Earth is a challenge. The struggle to survive exists among all creatures. Some of the scenes, especially between the hunter and the hunted, might be a bit too much to take. But the scenes that show how brave and adaptive many creatures are in their refusal to give up more than make up for it.


Amazing Moments

One episode shows how the tiny strawberry dart frog, no bigger than a fingernail, fights for survival by carrying each of her tadpoles from the rainforest floor to a safer location in the treetops. Another episode follows three cheetah brothers who have learned to hunt as a pack, which is unusual because cheetahs usually hunt alone.


One of the best scenes captures Capuchin Monkeys that have learned how to collect and dry palm nuts and then take them to a special rock where they pound them open, using a second stone as a tool. The baby monkeys learn how to open the nuts by watching their parents – it takes almost eight years for the babies to learn how to do it properly!


Basically, you’ll learn tons about life and learn to appreciate how amazing it really is to survive in this world when you watch these DVDs. Each disc includes 11 episodes, plus special bonus features that show you how Life was made. The last DVD includes deleted scenes.

I mean, in the Amazing Spiderman, he kind of has a smart mouth, if you know what I mean (Not that I don't like it!), but in the original he didn't really.Plus in The Amazing Spiderman it was pretty obvious there was something strange about him. I mean, smashing the basketball hoop?!? Didn't ANYONE think it was suspicious?!?I'll have to get some Oscorp wire and make my own xD I wish!WHHHHHY?!? WHHHHHYYYYYYY?!?I know! Just because he didn't remember his name!No-one washes the flag! xD Yeah, I know right? Some people are so stupid! Like if I were in his high school, I would stalk him with lots of love in my eyes :) I KNOW:  WHYYYYY?? All villains are insane. Directors just try to make a point. Oh yeah, and the part when his aunt says he's filthy and he says he was cleaning the chimney. His aunt then says "we don't have a chimney" And then Peter's like: "whaaaaaaaat?" lol xD
