Blog Action Day: Oceans and The Crimson Wing

Blog Action Day, DisneyNature Oceans, The Crimson WingToday is Blog Action Day, and the subject is Water! Great opportunity to evangelize two excellent films by DisneyNature.

Oceans,’ a G-rated documentary directed by Jacques Perrin and narrated by Pierce Brosnan, will hit stores and cyber-shelves on Oct. 19, 2010. Released in theaters on April 22, 2010 (Earth Day), it’s now available in a combo blu-ray/DVD pack.

Check out my review here. In summary, it’s a beautiful film with stunning photography of underwater life, as well as an ecological message about preserving the oceans.

Also new in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack is ‘The Crimson Wing‘ (not rated), which tells the amazing story of the Lesser Flamingos that breed at Lake Natron in Tanzania.

These elegant (and, quite frankly, stubborn) birds have lived in this remote, hostile environment for perhaps a million years! That’s just mind-boggling to think about.

Check out the trailer for both films:

    I have to see the Oceans one – I’ve been wanting to for a while

    Am intrigued by underwater scenery. It just amazes me that there’s a whole world that we don’t see every day, but can actually glimpse into. Will have to see this one!

    Thanks for these suggestions. I’ve been meaning to pick up Oceans, I haven’t seen previews for the other one. BTW–I tried to find Legend of the Seeker at my local library without any luck. Still on the hunt…

    Thank you for this post, Jane. Our family has not seen either of these movies and I’m excited to watch them both. Maybe we’ll rent them for Family Movie Night this weekend!
