In Time for Earth Day - Celebrate One of Nature's Most Majestic Mammals - Bears
In an epic story, Disneynature's new film, Bears showcases a year in the life of a bear family as two young cubs are taught how to make their way in the world. Set in the grandiose Alaskan wilderness, the film follows them as they emerge from hibernation and experience the incredible world they live in complete with predators, avalanches and the search for food. "Bears is a fantastic and inspirational wild life adventure that many people will adore and watch again and again," notes KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Gerry O, age 12. See his full review below.

Noah - Epic Filmmaking That Will Test You
Noah is based on the Biblical story and greatly influenced by the graphic novel "Noah: For the Cruelty of Men." This film has been greatly criticized for its deviation from the Biblical story. It's good to remember that it's not a documentary. It is a Hollywood film and, as such, a great piece of filmmaking. Enjoy it for what it is not for what it isn't. Noah is the story about a man who is chosen by the Creator to undertake a momentous mission to rescue the innocent before an apocalyptic flood cleanses the wicked from the world. "This is an unexpected, thought provoking film, based loosely on the biblical story, and I was pleasantly surprised," comments KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Keefer B, age 13. See his full review below.
