I Bought this with excitement expecting a High Def feast

like planet earth or similar..but how wrong i was !!

So whats wrong with this series ?

1..It is painfully slow to change the picture you will look at the same scene for a minute or two before it changes sometimes..very frustrating

2..There is no dialogue just nature sounds very faint also at times

so for me it just not watchable so i’m selling it

Some may ask then what does he like..well heres the nature blu-rays i own an like

Planet earth…excellent


Wild China…excellent


scenic national parks(yosemite,grand canyon,yellowstone) …all excelent

Africa the serengeti…excellent

Alaska spirit of the wild…excellent

the Alps..excellent

earth the biography ..very good

so unless you are prepared for an extremely slow moving series i suggest you buy some of the above instead

I first saw this show called Sunrise earth on Animal Planet one early morning almost two years ago during a perfect time while thinking of that perfect girl. It created one of the most positive feelings i have ever felt at anytime in my whole life…I think this reason alone has made this incredible Blu Ray a must own in my collection. The scenes in this Blu ray make your mind sore to those special places and special times you are living now or might have lived in the past as in my case.

In today’s world there is sometimes too much stress, too many problems and not enough things to counter act them… But this is one of them. Seeing and hearing these beautiful sights and sounds of nature at its finest in Hi def. is truely one of the high points in my day for reasons you might understand after reading this review.

I have bought many things from Amazon but this is only my second review and i only write this review in hopes that somebody out there might be taken away by this as much as i have and to the person that is thinking of purchasing it…Picture this… At home, with that special someone with nothing more than this playing and a free and open mind. To me somethings as simple as this is all you need sometimes. Thank You for reading this review i hope Sunrise earth does for you what it does for me.

What a great blu-ray disc for relaxing and dreaming of retirement watching sunrises. You won’t be disappointed. Resolution and audio outstanding. Would like to hear 7.1 audio though.

I love the idea behing Sunrise Earth. No music, no talking, just natural sounds. Sunrise Earth was shot with HD in mind which makes these DVDs spectacular. I only have stereo speakers, but they do have a setting for surround sound which I can only guess would make the experience more enjoyable.

There are 4 discs, and disc A is both my least and most favorite. The first selection “Island First Light” is truly about the sunrise and there really is nothing else that happens. (Not that that is a bad thing, I just enjoy the movement of nature such as birds stirring and other creatures beginning their day.) The second selection “The Great Barrier Reef” is my favorite showing both above and below water shots.

The other 3 discs, have a good variety of activities happening at sunrise and are a joy to watch as well.

If I have any disappointment with the DVDs, it is that there is no “scene selection” so if I want to pick-up the video at any particular moment the only option is to fast-forward to where I left off.

I certainly hope that there will be another Sunrise Earth series coming soon.

Sunrise Earth is really a great idea. Packaged Environments have been available in the past on sound and video recordings. The absence of narration is the key attraction. Many wonderful nature and wildlife documentaries have interesting voice-overs but when I’m watching and hearing a gorgeous bit of scenery, the commentaries often seem Superfluous and even rude. I began enjoying Sunrise Earth shows on HDTV and filled up my DVR every other day. I bought my first set on DVD and got the Seaside collection in BD and it is one of the reasons I got into Blu-ray.

The episodes are all a bit less than an hour each; they start at first light and continue as the local lights up with the sun. Some of it is jaw dropping but much is subtile. I have seen better A/V quality on things like Planet Earth but the quality is excellent and the content is truly unique. There are almost never people in the picture. Just nature. The sound is only Dolby Digital but it is good enough to put you in the picture. If you like nature you’ll find these a great experience. I have a lot of discs ‘like’ these; but Sunrise Earth gets played the most.

Also available on DVD, HDDVD and BD and single episodes are available. Check you HighDef TV programing and catch a few. Read about it on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunrise_Earth
