WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Cosmic Voyage: This is an informative look at the essence of life shown from the smallest known mass to the furthest outreaches of space. Narrated by Morgan Freeman.

Destiny in Space: This one takes a look at the launch of the Hubble space telescope and the subsequent mission to fix the telescope. All of which is shot by astronauts.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
Cosmic Voyage: When it comes to Imax movies you should already know what youíre getting into. On one hand, youíll get some great visuals and maybe even a few thrills like youíre being shot into space or flying over a tall building. On the other hand, you have this overwhelming feeling like youíre sitting in a classroom. If you love the subject matter, or are fascinated long enough with the visuals, then it doesnít matter. Unfortunately for me, space doesnít interest me unless there are lightsabers involved.

Iím kidding, of course, but I donít think the visuals of COSMIC VOYAGE merit a purchase. Itís one of those Imax films that is okay for one viewing, but the visuals just arenít impressive enough to make you want to watch it again. The content is informative, but itís nothing you didnít learn in your eighth grade science class.

Destiny in Space: This is a good example of an Imax film that feels more like school than a movie. I donít want it to sound like I donít enjoy learning, but when it comes to Imax movies, you have to show me some amazing visuals in order to keep me involved. DESTINY IN SPACE had a few moments where my jaw dropped, but they were few and far between. The rest of the time I was watching computer generated graphics or astronauts floating around in the shuttle.

There were a couple of instances where we ďexploredĒ a computer generated image of Mars and Venus and I felt those scenes were too long and unnecessary. Rather than fly around a computer animated planet, Iíd rather the film either a) be shorter or b) show more shots of the shuttle. In the end, this one is strictly for space nuts and I think the average person will be bored.
THE EXTRAS
None
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
There are several quality Imax films out there that appeal to whatever you happen to be into. This one is fine for those of you that are fascinated with space. For those that arenít, I think youíll be bored.
