Movie of the Day – March of the Penguins

Posted on the 21 February 2013 by Plotdevice39 @PlotDevices

So apparently given the vast amount of news reports, weather reports and seeing the chaos that was happening at the market this evening, Kansas is going to get a little snow storm.  This isn’t just any snow storm, but a snowmagedon, which is what they said about the last snow storm we got and the exact same panic happened.  I will never understand this state and the fact that they forget this happens often and we all are inconvenienced for one fucking day before the roads are OK to drive on again.  By the sheer panic and empty shelves, I guess 8-10 inches of snow is something to worry, but then again the city worried when there was 6-8 inches of snow.  Sigh.

To alleviate the fears of all those in the Midwest feeling the chill of a winter storm, maybe a movie involving penguins enduring the harsh, bitter terrain of Antarctica will cheer everyone up.  Also it doesn’t hurt that Morgan Freeman narrating this documentary with his soothing voice of reassurance and comfort.  I could listen to that man read the US Tax Code for hours and it would be exciting.

So no real post this evening as there isn’t terribly much to say about a documentary that covers the migration of the Emperor Penguins and their general cuteness.  It is well shot and calmingly beautiful to behold.  A pure cinematic experience of a majestic scale that is strangely compelling with their tuxedo clad penguins.  Damn they are cute.

Also man up Midwest, we will get through this snow.  Those penguins have it harder than us.
