The only way this could have been better was if it was on imax.

is it just me or did a whale appear during all that?

swore I saw the same thing... guessing it was just the coloring of the ice.

I just got back from seeing this on a small-ish screen in Lincoln Center. The story of how they manage this project is stated well with info you may have seen on YouTube/TED conferences, etc and James' photos are beautiful. The climatic end showing the large LARGE chunks is amazing and scary in so many ways even on a smaller screen. I would pay $25 to see the footage of the 75 minutes unedited on an IMAX. Im hoping this footage at least makes its way on the Blu-Ray.
