The Beauty Of Snakes Blu-ray Review

The Beauty Of Snakes Blu-ray Review
Written by Loys JohnsonDisc Size: 7.45 GB
Documentary Size: 7.27 GB
Documentary Rating: Not Rated

The Beauty Of Snakes comes to Blu-ray with a 1080p AVC/MPEG-4 video presentation. I was very impressed by this release, as it features both nice detail and colors. Detail is almost always top notch, with a few scenes that are a bit stylized. Colors are accurate and vibrant, and black levels are as solid as can be. The Beauty Of Snakes provides an up close high-def look at some of the most dangerous snakes in the world, and definitely worth checking out if you are intrigued. 9/10.

Included is a 5.1 Dolby Digital audio track, which does the job fine for the type of material. The documentary is narrated the entire time, and sounds just fine. The snake noises stay front heavy, while the music featured expands into the surround area. The track does a fine job, and I couldn't imagine a lossless audio track improving much if at all. 6/10.

There are no extras

Blu-news Summary
The Animal Planet documentary showing up at my door was definitely surprising, and I have to be honest that I really wasn't too interested. That being said, once I popped the disc into the player, I ended up watching the entire thing. The documentary is less than an hour, but more than entertaining. I was left intrigued, and learned a lot from it.

The Blu-ray release is very nice, featuring a video presentation that is true to the source, and an audio track that does it's job just fine. The price is right for the release, so for those interested in seeing snakes in high-def, this one is definitely 'Worth A Look.'
