I remember Fly Away Home, but not Winged Migration. I imagine these will look fairly decent. but hardly impressive.

Look forward to the audio commentary on Winged Migration. Will they open up more to the unethical imprinting of chicks all around the world to achieve this no-doubt stunning film. Two sides to every argument though.

Put a damper on film for me, but will still buy! Oh the pain of Blu-ray.

Winged Migration was not the kind of movie that I would typicaly watch. However I did watch it and it was an amazing film. I'm sure it will look great in Blu-ray too!

Winged Migration is a guaranteed purchase for me.

Here's hoping some serious effort is put into the transfer as the DVD's PQ is pretty weak...

Love this documentary though!

Just noticed that 'Fly Away Home' omits the isolated score with commentary by composer Mark Isham from the DVD.

Still glad to see this released sooner rather than later. Hope Carroll Ballard's 'Never Cry Wolf' doesn't take years before it gets released.

Winged Migration is a very cool flick/video/documentary..whatever you want to call it! As always, I could have done without the ham-fisted, "were all gonna die if you dont end capitalism" propganda, but its expected in these types of films.

Thats why Planet Earth from Discovery is the best of these....they barely "pimp" their BS like most other films such as this do.

Either way, a potential buy for the right price.

Winged Migration is the first nature film I saw before the march of the penguins hype. It was fantastic how they used the no-motor plane camera angle and flys with the flocks. I own it and enjoy. The grain is intact. Looks wonderful to me.
