World War Z
The Bling Ring
Jack the Giant Slayer
21 And Over
It's impossible to not come away with a renewed respect, appreciation and awe for this place we all call home.
| Original Score: 4/5
When Disney gets involved in making things green, we're talking about the color of money.
| Original Score: 2/4
Earth hits all the right notes, and if Disney corners the market on nature documentaries and creates an annual cinematic event of this caliber tied into Earth Day, so be it.
Solid docu about global-warming informs rather than preaches.
A beautiful mix of humor, heart and spectacle that puts the studio that invented the True-Life Adventure back in touch with its wild side.
| Original Score: 4/4
Reminds us that no matter where you are, this third rock from the sun of ours is a gorgeous thing.
Like Arctic Tale, this is a great looking and interesting view of nature. Also like that other 2007 film, Earth falls short of being truly memorable.
| Original Score: 71/100
Those familiar with the Discovery series Planet Earth won't find anything new here, but the James Earl Jones-narrated movie is fine on its own.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Earth may be the most striking collection of nature photography I've ever seen. It isn't flawless, but it is a one-of-a-kind treat.
| Original Score: A-
A gorgeously photographed nature documentary that doesn't have enough happy moments and has far too many tragic ones.
| Original Score: 3/4
What this is, in fact, is the live-action version of the opening of The Lion King, celebrating the 'circle of life.'
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Earth caters to a younger audience, keeping its biological and environmental lessons at a basic level of understanding.
...if not exactly innovative, at least breathtaking on a how-in-the-world-did-they-get-that-shot level.
| Original Score: 3/5
Setting new standards in precision wildlife photography, "Earth" remains little more than eye candy. A Playboy magazine of the planet earth.
| Original Score: 7/10
It's not only a good watch but is informative.
| Original Score: B+
Disney puts truth in the drawer claiming that "changing weather patterns" cause drying rainforests, when it's the destruction of the rainforest that is causing the changing weather patterns.
| Original Score: 6/10
I didn't learn anything but it's fun, which I didn't expect. Animals do stuff. I don't see how it's an overall ecosystem but whatever.
The production values of this film are very good, but it wanders away from its three main storylines often enough that it may not hold the attention of children.
| Original Score: B
EARTH opens with a dazzling scene of the planet from space and then flits around the globe to give us equally astonishing shots of animals in survival mode and at play.
| Original Score: 5/5
For most of the way this is an eye-popping, not blood-curdling, experience.
