Long on effects short on facts! by kicza October 6, 2003 - 9:41 PM PDT

This documentary spent a lot of time presenting theories as fact with no hard data to back itself up. 90% of the theories showcased are not even generally accepted in scientific circles. This film uses a lot of special effects to show the scale of the universe and astral physics but falls short in providing a proper scale of time. To say that that our sun will destroy the planet in the future is true. The problem comes in with the fact that the scientific community dates this event to happen sometime in the next 100 BILLION YEARS and our host makes seem like it will happen in the next few generations of human life. Wildly unpopular theories aside it would have been nice to have a conversation with one of the "Big Thinkers" or top physicists in the world instead of the middle of the road bunch that were pulled together for this show. Why didn't we see someone like Stephen Hawking? Simple, no hard facts were presented. Even when referring to temperature there was no mention made regarding the scale they were using. Is 10 degrees below 0 in Kelvin, Celsius, or Fahrenheit? If you want to see a lot of Star Trek opening scene planet fly-by scenes without any data or frame of reference to back up theories presented this is the film for you. Very disappointing to anyone with any kind of scientific knowledge or background!
