Movie Review: Earth

Earth is one of the most beautiful documentaries I have ever seen. The film starts in the Arctic and makes its way around the world, showing various animals and plant life in different climates. I highly recommend watching it.

In my opinion, it is tame enough to allow your children to watch. While it does cover some sad moments pertaining to the "cycle of life", it is not graphic and will not scare your children. Some parts are even humorous in a way only true nature can make you laugh. I found many parts to be extremely fascinating, and I learned a lot too!

You can see a trailer of the movie here. It is beautiful, beautiful. They certainly put a lot of work into it. During the end credits, they show some shots of how the movie was made, it is really neat!

Can you guess which animal I loved the most? (hint, he's in the poster above!)

I wanted to see that movie when it was out in theaters. I watch the Planet Earth shows on the Discovery Channel all the time. I know that I would like this!

This was based on the footage from the awesome series Planet Earth, which I watched in its entirety and recorded on my DVR. Amazing!!!! I was so glad to see they pulled out some of it and repackaged it for younger kids as some of the stuff in the original was a bit upsetting>
