Arctic Tale 

 

Arctic Tale is not much of a movie, but more of a documentary (editor: think of the National Geographic) with some commentary. This Blu-ray disc chronicles the life of a polar bear, and a walrus. It starts with their birth until these females have cubs of their own. Hopefully I did not spoil this movie for anyone interested in watching it.

There are some colors in Arctic Tale, but a lot of dark ones, or white ones. The underwater video is exceptional. I loved seeing how the ocean bottom looks way out there. Animals do die, but it is done in a family friendly manner. The worst images on this disc are of animals eating dead animals. This could present a teachable moment about animals - especially when they are hungry.

I had a few hints of a very controversial topic during the movie. As the credits rolled the floodgates opened up, and veil was dropped. The dubious global warming religious belief is taught as truth. I found myself asking how washing my clothes in cold water would help a polar bear. Maybe if Al Gore would stop flying around in private jets I would accept his sermons, and leave science and logic at the door.

Arctic Tale disappointed me in the extras portion. There are two features; a making of the movie, and polar bear spotting. Oh I almost forgot there is also the theatrical trailer. I have heard about how much more content the Blu-ray disc can hold, and sadly it was not utilized. I do think there are a lot of wonderful images that are worth re-watching. A few did make me feel cold though.

Each and every single one of the menu screens function as I would expect them to. I had no problems navigating around the intelligently designed screens. The storyline seems genuinely concerned about the animals in the Arctic. I have to wonder the impact all of the humans taking video had on the environment up there.

Arctic Tale shows a lot about family in the animal kingdom. One animal comes to the rescue and winds up dying for it. Of course that wound up feeding two polar bears who needed to eat. I see this movie as a great way to see how these animals live, and teach your children the differences between mankind, and the animal kingdom.
