Awesome lemurs, uninspired reading by Freeman

I love Freeman as actor, but was disappointed by his narration, which felt like he is 1) falling asleep and 2) reading the text for the first time from script, with very flat intonation.

Jumping lemurs, otoh, are amazing, could have easily enjoyed more of those shots. Or following around the ringtails' family.

Squirrel Monkeys

My knowledge of Lemurs up until this point was simply that they existed. That and they look like squirrel monkeys. When I got the Blu-ray of this film, I groaned. "What is this? Looks like something trying to capitalize off of the Madagascar movies." Then I noticed that none other than God himself (Morgan Freeman) was doing the narration, so I decided to embrace it. I embraced it by doing what most people should before watching a nature documentary; I got really high. Island Of Lemurs is a short, enjoyable film with vast, sweeping landscapes of the beautiful Island of Madagascar and the adorable, aforementioned, squirrel monkeys. The Blu-Ray/DVD combo also features the film in 3D for those who are lucky enough to afford said technology. The only draw back to this documentary is the run time. It clocks in at just 41 minutes and for the asking retail price of $35.99, I feel that it's too steep to warrant a purchase. Unless of course you just bought a 70-inch high-def television with your income taxes and need a tester DVD to throw on and impress your friends, then Island Of Lemurs is right for you!

IMAX keeps delivering quality content

"Island of Lemurs: Madagascar" is one of the more recent IMAX nature documentaries as it came out pretty much exactly a year ago. Douglas and Fellman are very experienced in their field and also made for example "Born to Be Wild" almost 5 years ago. Here they offer us their take on Madagascar. I want to say that the title is very accurate here as this film is not exclusively about lemurs, but about the island, the people and also some other animals. However, the center of this 40-minute film are certainly lemurs. I would say that they are not the cutest animals of the planet, yet they are beautiful and fascinating to watch and these eyes... wow, so intriguing. The narration is by Morgan Freeman, which is already almost a given. i like him as an actor and I like listening to him. Good job. This documentary focuses on the work with Patricia Wright and how she has fought for and done research on lemurs in the past. It is a bit funny to see how dedicated she is, but she is really more quietly convincing and it is obvious that she does not like to be in the limelight that much. More the quietly convincing type like myself. I like that. So yeah, some really stunning animal and nature photography in this documentary. It's nice to see IMAX still deliver after all these years. It's nothing too different from other IMAX nature documentaries, so you can make up your mind for yourself if you want to watch or miss out on this one. I personally learned something new occasionally and quite enjoyed the watch. Thumbs up and I certainly recommend it.
