  • If you're feeling nostalgic for a time when the environmental movement was something everyone embraced, Robert Stone's Earth Days is bound to comfort -- and alarm.

    Dec 10, 2009 | Rating: 3/4
  • Honoring the heroes of the environmental movement is clearly appropriate, but getting mired in nostalgia is a dirty shame.

    Oct 29, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Yes, the future still looks grim and whales are hunted here as they are in all such films, but Stone spends most of his time tracking something positive -- the birth of the environmental movement in the '60s and '70s.
