Available on Blu-ray on December 3, 2013

LOS ANGELES (Oct. 31, 2013) – Image Entertainment, an RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE) brand, announces the release of a thrilling double feature: Galactic Adventures: 3D Sun/Mars 3D is available on Blu-ray for an SRP of $24.98 on Dec. 3, 2013.

3D Sun: From Earth, the Sun cannot be looked at with human eyes. Narrated by Al Roker, 3D SUN gives audiences a chance to see the Sun up close in startling 3D. Stand above the arctic circle and witness the most brilliant auroras on Earth; take a ride on a solar blast from Sun’s surface to Earth’s Magnetosphere, and come to a deeper understanding of what this vast sea of fire means to life here on Earth. In October 2006, NASA launched twin spacecraft from a single rocket in Florida — a spacecraft that would, for the first time in the history of space exploration, capture space-born, high-definition 3D images of the Sun. In 3D SUN, the leading NASA scientists from the mission unveil these images and take us behind the scenes to tell the story of the Sun and why it is of crucial importance to all of us.

Mars 3D takes viewers behind the scenes of the Mars Exploration Rover Mission revealing daily dramas, mind-boggling physics and compelling science behind the $820 million dollar NASA project. Behold this celebration of space exploration and the human stories behind the mission, how engineers plunged the depths of gravity and physics to ensure a successful launch an landing and how two 380 pound rovers will bring scientists closer than ever before to solving the mysteries of Mars.

Please note: Blu-ray disc will play on standard Blu-ray players & 3D Blu-ray players. To watch these programs in Blu-ray 3D, you will need a 3D-capable television and a 3D-capable Blu-ray player.

Review-I have always been a fan of the IMAX experience. I remember my sophomore year in College and I had a date and went to the IMAX for the first time, and was so blown away. At that time in my youth, it felt like the future of motion picture. Truth known, if I have a choice, I will pay the extra bucks and go see something in Imax. Imax films always felt like Criterion films, you had to know they were coming out or out, there was really not too much money spent on advertising and why? They sold themselves. While the experience of watching films is educational, jaw-dropping camera work and breathtaking images. Sun is an IMAX film, Mars is not and it clearly shows. The narrator of 3D Sun is Al Roker who explains to us about NASA launching two solar powered space crafts in 2006. Why you may ask, well they wanted to see opposite sides of the Earth to create a image of the Sun. 3D sun is boring; it is so hard to get one into watching it. It feels so bare, they tell us very little and what they do share with us seems to go into circles. I think the two documentaries together barely chalked up to 40 minutes. Which going into Mars, we learn about two rovers that land there to gain more info on them. I am so sick of all the money spent on space exploration and all the talk about life outside of this planet. The graphics we get are so dated and horrible, that I felt halfway thru this almost 20 minutes that it was too much and I did not want to watch anymore. But, I toughened it out and god I am so letdown. I love the IMAX films about the ocean, but it just seems from the dinosaurs to this, the rest are all letdowns and just not worthy of seeing.
