Disney's Earth

So, I never blogged about the last 2 movies I saw "Race to Witch Mountian" and "Madea Goes to Jail". Since I never got around to posting my reviews of them, I decided to go ahead and write about "Earth", which I saw today. I was off work today because it is a state holiday Confederate Memorial Day.

"Earth" is the first, of what I assume will be several, Disneynature films (we saw a preview of their next one - "Oceans"). The photography in this movie is just unbelievable !!! I cannot even imagine how many months/years was spent filming this. Basically, the movie follows 3 families - polar bears, elephants and humpback whales on their journeys. But it is far more than that - various birds, lions, tigers, and one of my faves - a mother duck teaching her babies to fly - so cute !

It does have some Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom predator/chase scenes but they were handled well and after all, that is just part of the circle of life, as James Earl Jones, the wonderful narrator points out. It was sweet and funny in places (loved the tropical bird cleaning up for his lady friend and doing his come-hither dance).

It is a very visually stunning movie and I highly recommend seeing it (but it must be seen on the big screen). I wish it would have been in IMAX - that would have made it move from a wow movie to a WOW movie !!

Very good family movie - well worth the ticket price.

Pin It!
