History delegates we step back in time...often way back in time...decades upon decades, centuries upon centuries in the past. That does not have to always be the case. Today we are going to remain in the 21st century with a look back to a movie produced 11 years ago. Not a thriller, a horror flick nor one of romantic nature (among humans anyway). It does depict a lot of action, adventure, drama, at times rather comical and you might even encounter a bit of dance. Its specific category is not even listed among Main Film Genres until you dig deeper into Genre Sub-Sections (Other Major Categories).
This Day in History: July 22, 2005
|March of the Penguins Review|
Such is the case on this day in 2005 with the release of the movie, March of the Penguins: A documentary film on the Emperor Penguins in Antarctica.
Film Synopsis: In the Antarctic, every March since the beginning of time, the quest begins to find the perfect mate and start a family. This courtship will begin with a long journey – a journey that will take them hundreds of miles across the continent by foot, in freezing cold temperatures, in brittle, icy winds and through deep, treacherous waters. They will risk starvation and attack by dangerous predators, under the harshest conditions on earth, all to find true love. Narrated by Morgan Freeman.On March 5, 2006, March of the Penguins won an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature. The success of March of the Penguins appeared to spark a mini-penguin craze: In November 2006, Happy Feet, a computer-animated film about emperor penguins, opened in U.S. theaters. Happy Feet won an Oscar for Best Animated Feature at the 79th Academy Awards on February 25, 2007.
