This documentary featuring mind-blowing footage from the Hubble telescope never came to Boise big screens, prompting outcry from science and space enthusiasts. They even started a Facebook page, aptly titled "Bring the Hubble 3D Movie to Boise." The space lovers were on to something. The film garnered rave reviews throughout the country, including from Roger Ebert, who remarked: "A film like this can get you thinking." With such a short run time--43 minutes--that is high praise.
The film focuses on a repair mission of the Hubble Telescope, intercut with footage of what Hubble sees--the depths of our universe with astonishing clarity. And while a DVD might not be the IMAX, for sights as spectacular as this film promises, it's better than nothing.
