Fascination Earth 3D: Our Wonderful Planet

 (2013)

Fascination Earth 3D: Our Wonderful Planet Blu-ray features bad video and mediocre audio in this poor Blu-ray release

Fascination Earth 3D takes you to the most magnificent places in the world. These films, shot in real 3D, portray our world as never seen before, from breathtaking scenery through impressive marine footage to the most beautiful and most dangerous animals on our planet.

For more about Fascination Earth 3D: Our Wonderful Planet and the Fascination Earth 3D: Our Wonderful Planet Blu-ray release, see Fascination Earth 3D: Our Wonderful Planet Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.



Fascination Earth 3D: Our Wonderful Planet Blu-ray, Video Quality

  1.5 of 5

Where to even begin? 3D Media's 1080p/MVC-encoded 3D experiences and AVC-encoded 2D presentations are a mess from start to finish, no matter the disc. (Films include Papua: The Secret Island of the Cannibals, Rocky Mountains: The Impressive Natural Paradise, Wild Africa: An Extraordinary Journey, World's Nature: Europe's Most Beautiful Places and Yellowstone: America's Greatest Wonder). The documentary palettes bobble between washed out, modestly strong and garishly hot, with at-times undersaturated, poorly contrasted imagery followed (sometimes within the same sequence) by unsightly, hotly contrasted photography. Primaries cross extremes too, from diluted to overbearing, as do black levels, which bounce from horribly muted to oppressive.

The entire five-film presentation, in fact, bears a regrettably striking resemblance to an off-label multi-movie pack you'd pick up on standard DVD a decade ago, and poorly compressed standard DVDs at that. Macroblocking is common. Banding and shimmering are at play. Aliasing and ringing are present throughout. And don't even try to catalogue the pulldown anomalies, crosstalk-prone 3D shots and other random eyesores that litter the already problematic proceedings. It's as close to a lost cause as it comes.

Detail ranges from middling to smeared to downright disheartening as well, all of which makes for an at-times grueling viewing experience, regardless of whether you select each film's 2D or 3D presentation. Worse, 3D depth is a joke (I'd argue non-existent if there weren't a handful of animal close-ups that actually do have a reasonably three-dimensional appearance), dimensionality is completely disappointing, and even the best of the film's 3D scenes may as well be in 2D as flat and uninspiring as they are. The collection's only real selling point -- its 3D -- is designed solely to lure in those still eager to buy every 3D disc on the market, whatever the consequence. And that's a rapidly dwindling subset of 3D adopters, most of whom hopefully are getting wiser to the tricks of the bargain 3D trade. Is there any saving grace to the 5-disc Fascination Earth set's video presentations? Anything at all? Those who've had the misfortune to purchase other 3D Media releases already know the answer: not really. Scratch that: no, not a single thing.


Fascination Earth 3D: Our Wonderful Planet Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

All five films include two DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround tracks: the first with narration and music, the second a music-only mix. Sadly, lossless or no, narration is slightly muffled and flatly implemented, dynamics are average at best, rear speaker activity is inconsequential, and the documentary's generic, barrel-bottom music barely registers. Again, the word DVD springs to mind, even though there are a few moments that exhibit some DTS-HD heft. These moments are the exception rather than the rule, though, and the tracks are serviceable at best, if I'm being generous. Ultimately, like its video encodes, Fascination Earth's lossless audio tracks fail to deliver.
