The spectacular scenery, vibrant colors and dangerous speed of the Tour de France provide the perfect raw material for Imax filmmaking.
The mental and physical coordination is a feat that any golf, football, tennis player, et al., can relate to. But its impact is magnified on the IMAX screen.
Take comfort, fogies -- according to 'Wired, the brain never stops learning.
The graphics and facts about the brain are interesting, but it always feels like they are interrupting the action to bring you the commercials that are paying for the show to be on the big screen.
Offers a nice visual overview of the Tour, but doesn't quite work either as an insightful portrait of its competitors or as a science lesson.
This story marries together two seemingly distinct subjects: the Tour de France and the science of the brain. It's a marriage that seems somewhat contrived, but it works.
