Contest: To the Arctic

posted by Nell Minow

Meryl Streep narrates “To the Arctic,” the story of twin polar bear cubs and their mother that is a great family film.  And I have a copy to give away.

It’s an extraordinary journey to the top of the world and a compelling tale of survival in the changing Arctic wilderness they call home. Captivating and intimate IMAX® footage brings audiences up-close and personal with this family’s struggle in a frigid environment of melting ice, immense glaciers, spectacular waterfalls and majestic snow-bound peaks.  The vistas and wildlife are breathtaking and the story of the mother and her cubs fighting for survival is touching.  And the soundtrack features songs by Sir Paul McCartney.

It’s now available on DVD and Blu-Ray.  The Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack features a 3D hi-definition, a hi-definition and a standard definition copy of the film; and the single disc DVD features a standard definition copy. Both the Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack and the single disc DVD include UltraViolet, which allows consumers to download and instantly stream the standard definition theatrical version of the film to a wide range of devices including computers and compatible tablets, smartphones, game consoles, Internet-connected TVs and Blu-ray players.

To enter, send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com and tell me why you’d like to visit the Arctic.  Don’t forget to include your address (US addresses only).  I’ll pick a winner at random on April 7.  Good luck!

Four Disney Artists Paint a Tree
Pure pleasure: Four great Disney artists, Marc Davis, Eyvind Earle, Josh Meador, and Walt Peregoy, paint a tree. There's a reason they call them actors with pencils. Or, just call them geniuses. [iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/9JK9uQNBDxQ?rel=0" frameborder="0"]

Mortdecai
There's a lot of noise in "Mortdecai" but what I remember most is the silences where everything pauses for a moment to allow the audience to laugh without drowning out the next witty riposte. Nope,
