1.0 out of 5 stars beware, 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beautiful Planet - England & The Low Countries [Blu-ray] [2012] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
...how do I start?
You look at the cover, read the title, that it is supposed to be a REALLY nice 'documentary' with beautiful pictures and great information as it is supposed to be a "visual journey around the worl in STUNNING high-definition." That's why I bought it.

ok...about the stunning high-definition:
it's barely a DVD quality, far from stunning, and most or maybe even all shots are taken on a dull clouded day. I do know we don't get much sun in the UK, but we sometimes DO. The makers of the film could and SHOULD have waited for a much better weather and could have bothered cleaning the lense of the camera. Yes! You can actually see the smudge and dust on the camera!!!

the content:
Britain is a beautiful, green place, with many ancient ruins, great architecture, stunning landmarks. And what do they show on the film? I watched about 15mins of the 1st part- about Kew Gardens. Boring nattarion, boring information, boring camera shots, dull dark shots, irritationg camera move shows bad quality of the equipment it was recorded on (as if it was taken by 10 frames per second film). I couldn't stand it, so I forwarded it to the next part. London- tour around Houses of Parliament.Boring information, boring shots from OUTSIDE of the place, quality of the passer bvideo camera, with the boring narration of a woman,as if she was reading from a Wikipedia, again on a dull day.
Sorry, I could take only 5 mins of watching it and jumped straight to this review to warn all the potential buyers.
Please don't waste your time or money, it isn't worth a penny.
