The Imax Ultimate Collection: 20 Documentary Films

The Imax Ultimate Collection includes twenty DVDs including some of the best Imax movies ever released. A fantastic set for anyone who loves Imax films. I cannot believe this deal almost snuck past me. Did it almost get past you?

The people at Imax have put together an incredible set of twenty documentary films in one package at a very reasonable price. The price does move a bit but right now, it is on sale at Amazon for just $44.87 or $2.24 each. That is a deal that you will not beat.

In December, 2008, I created a page about the Top 10 Imax Blu-ray Movies. On it were the top 10 Imax movies available on blu-ray, as defined by Amazon's bestselling list. That page includes a lot information, reviews and links about each individual movie that was featured on that list.

Words like the best and the top are always subjective though and I struggled with what to call THIS page about the IMAX Ultimate Collection because the documentary set includes some pretty amazing Imax movies ~~ some that receive top scores from Amazon Customer Reviews, some that are bestsellers, some that made the most money at the box office and some that received the most awards for filmatography.

The nature of the twenty movies that Imax packed into this box is a little loose. I cannot call it in all fairness call the twenty BEST Imax movies nor the TOP twenty Imax films but it is definitely packed with fantastic Imax features. You are bound to find some of your favorites...and probably some that you haven't seen, too and I think that this set is truly a wonderful and affordable way to start a collection of Imax movies.

Galapagos

Galapagos [Blu-ray]
Galapagos [Blu-ray]

Definitely one of the best Imax films, Galapagos is hugely popular and well received and is part of the Imax Ultimate collection.

The Galapagos islands are gorgeous with beautiful scenery and wonderful wildlife. This Imax film is a 150-minute documentary presentation that shows it all from the air, the sea and the land. It is one of the magnificent films included in the Imax Ultimate Collection. Amazon customer Mat said that Galapagos was the BEST documentary he had seen ever and that you will "truly believe you are there when you watch this.

Another fantastic package deal, I cannot believe the price on this Imax nature-themed set, which includes Galapagos, Volcanos, Into The Deep, Survival Island, T-Rex: Back to the Cretaceous, The Secret of Life on Earth and Mountain Gorilla. An amazing deal, a perfect gift for anyone who loves nature documentaries!

 

My Favorite Imax Film

One of my personal favorites is Niagara: Miracles, Myths & Magic although I can understand that it isn't of as wide enough interest to really be suitable for this collection. Another favorite is Legend of Loch Lomond, a hauntingly beautiful movie set in Scotland. Once again, different from those in this collection. Maybe Imax will have to release a second collection with MY favorite Imax movies!

      I've seen a few at an IMAX theater in Los Angeles, and one I really liked that's not on here was about lions (not sure of the exact title).

      @TanoCalvenoa: This is a big collection but I guess there are just too many great Imax documentaries for them all to appear in one set. Thanks for the recommendation!
