"Journey Of Man" was one of the more popular IMAX films at large-format theaters this year. Personally, I also thought it was one of the worst. New-agey to a cringe-inducing level and boasting clown-sidekick characters about as irritating as Jar-Jar from Episode 1, the attempt at trying to make a story (boy quickly grows up to a man in 36 minutes flat) out of a picture that should have just focused on the performances often made the film sleep-inducing rather than awe-inspiring. Yet, for those who enjoyed the picture, Columbia/Tristar have offered a nice, if somewhat overpriced DVD. The film is presented in 1.33:1 full-frame and looks exceptional. Colors are often breathtakingly bold and vibrant, while sharpness and detail are exceptional. Aside from a few little specks, I saw nothing in the way of flaws. The film is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1. While certainly not one of the most agressive-sounding IMAX soundtracks I've ever heard, surrounds occasionally come into play for the music or ambient sounds. Unfortunately, there's almost nothing in the way of extras: two trailers for other "Cirque" releases - that's it. The DVD is priced at $24.98 retail, which seems a little much for a 36-minute feature on a nearly feature-less disc. For those who are interested, the disc might be worth renting, but I wouldn't recommend a purchase. Aaron - who's still wishing that someone would announce "All Access: Backstage" IMAX for DVD.
