  • Happy Feet Two

    Happy Feet Two (2011)

    Rated PG, 100 min. Directed by George Miller.

    There’s lots of peril but not much story in this sequel to 2006’s animated-penguin blockbuster. The movie opens with a big song-and-dance number in which young Erik (Acres) is unable to dance but is encouraged to do so by his mom, Gloria (Pink), and dad, Mumble (Elijah Wood), who were the central characters in the original. Erik wants to find his own thing, so he takes off with some friends for lands beyond. Mumble soon rescues Erik, but upon their return, they find the penguins’ habitat has shifted, leaving the flock trapped. Concurrently, we meet Will (Pitt) and Bill (Damon), a couple of krill who decide they’re tired of being “one in a krillion” and set off on their own adventure. Although appealing to look at, Happy Feet Two is unable to spark much emotional involvement, and the film’s near-constant peril may intimidate the young ones in the audience. Read a full review of Happy Feet Two.

  • "A Beautiful Planet" (2016)

    Rated G, 40 min. Directed by Toni Myers. Narrated by Jennifer Lawrence.

  • "Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience" (2016)

    Rated G, 45 min. Directed by Terrence Malick. Narrated by Brad Pitt.

    Terrence Malick's first foray into documentary filmmaking is this decades-in-the-making history of the universe, and it's a visually magnificent achievement that's educational, as well.

  • Wild Africa 3-D (2017)

    Not rated, 42 min. Directed by Patrick Morris and Neil Nightingale. Narrated by Helena Bonham Carter.

    Can't afford that African safari? Here's the next best thing.
