    Since I had never seen an IMAX movie . The picture is not perfect because it was recorded in large format film for IMAX but it fills up the whole screen and looks great. There are no bars on the top or bottom which is exactly what I was looking for. There is a slight graininess to the movie but that is from the original film. The movie looks great on 4k it is just missing the HDR. Also all the narrators were really good and most of them are famous actors. I thought it was a little funny that they had Bill Paxton as the narrator to the tornado portion since I remember seeing him in "Twister". Overall it is a good film

    Should have supported HDR

    The sound is stunning. On the whole, the movies play nice on my 4K TV. They are noticeably sharper than 1080p resolution movies. However, what is disappointing is the fact that none of these movies support HDR or wide color gamut. Hence the reason I took a couple stars off. Disappointed with "Grand Canyon Adventure" as it's mostly about the Colorado river (not exactly about the Grand Canyon) and following Robert Kennedy Jr. and his family on a trip. Nothing very exciting. Was hoping for more "beauty shots" and a different educational aspect.

    The three films give an interesting view of nature. I found the Robert Redford narrative of the Grand Canyon the most interesting as it told of the lack of measures of conserving water in the Southwest and what is needed to save it. The other two films deal with astronomy with beautiful photos of the galaxy and tornado alley which covers aspects of severe weather, something that interests me as I live in that area. I purchased this primarily to see what it would look like on my new OLED tv. I was not disappointed.

    The Ultra 4K videos are nice and beautiful on my 4K TV. One thing producers need to do is make the videos much longer because people want to feel the environment. If they put videos of say just being on a beach, or in the meadows, on a cliff looking out on a mountain range, under water and just hearing the sounds of nature that can be looped you would feel as if your there. And then with different locations you could have it up daily to make you feel good. But the better way is to actually go ;)

    If you're into IMAX movies, this EXTREME ADVENTURE COLLECTION set in 4K is one to buy. The transfers are all excellent in 4K. The problem with this set is that all 3 titles are uneven. GRAND CANYON ADVENTURE: RIVER AT RISK is the best of the set, narrated by Robert Redford. HIDDEN UNIVERSE is a documentary about our solar system. TORNADO ALLEY is the weakest of the set. My set cost $15 translated to $5 per title. You can't beat that! The resolution in 4K is incredible.

    Watched all 3 in succession, and really enjoyed the Tornado and space stories. I like Robert Redford, but there was so much environmental preaching and family details, I kinda felt like the Grand Canyon and its beauty was almost an after thought. All-in-all, definitely worth the small investment, and the 4k is fairly well showcased.

    I always liked the imax movies in the theaters. At about 45 minutes each they're not too long.You get 3 movies on this disc. The Grang Canyon one and the space one are good. I have only bought about 5 4k movies so far. This one looks the best. All the other ones are HDR, and on my OLED tv I don't like the hdr effect much.

    This 4K Blu Ray has stunning filming with some quality narrators that includes the late Bill Paxton who appropriately is the narrator on the Tornado film. Highly recommend to those who own a 4K TV and media player. Definitely a good demo Blu Ray to show off your 4K setup to your friends!
