Movie Review Friday: Planet Earth

Escape to the movies with one of our Movie Review Friday selections. Each week, we review a film with an environmental theme that’s currently in theaters or available on DVD. Seen a good eco-flick lately? Send us a review of 100 or fewer words and look for it in the next Movie Review Friday.

Planet Earth (2006)
Available on DVD

After a long day of urban life in your local concrete jungle, there’s nothing like winding down with any one of the five discs in BBC’s Planet Earth documentary series, which originally aired in the U.S. on the Discovery Channel. Indulge in remarkable sights and sounds never before captured on film followed by quirky video diaries of the filmmakers in the field. Whether you’re in the mood for mountains, caves, ice worlds, seasonal forests, or shallow seas, not to mention countless creatures ranging from creepy-crawly to cute and cuddly, this epic set has it all.

And if conserving and preserving the film's stars – this great planet and its fascinating inhabitants – is of concern to you, be sure especially to watch the fifth and final disc, called “The Future.” Featuring lead scientists and CEOs of the world’s top conservation organizations (Sierra Club included), it plays like a dream team of the most progressive minds in conservation.
