Imax: To the Arctic 

Narrated by Academy Award-Winner Meryl Streep, Imax: To the Arctic takes viewers on a journey to the heart of one of the harshest landscapes on earth as you follow the real-life story of a mother polar bear and her twin seven-month-old cubs as they fight for survival and trek through the arctic wilderness, including melting ice, gigantic glaciers, breathtaking waterfalls and majestic snow-bound peaks.

The Bottom Line

this film may be set in the cold, but it's guaranteed to make your heart melt. It's hard not to feel emotional when you watch these fantastic creatures struggle and survive in their daily lives in a part of the world many of us may never see. If you were a fan of Disney's Chimpanzee (another nature documentary following the life of a young chimpanzee) than this film will be right up your alley. The amazing scenery is made all the more real when you watch it on Blu-Ray. The only major drawback is that at just 40 minutes it's a short documentary, but luckily the DVD and Blu-ray include lots of extras to extend the adventure.

Imax: To the Arctic DVD + Blu-ray Rating:4

This has to be one of the weirdest polls I have ever seen, they are two completely different things with two completely different audiences. They are not really comparable, kind of like apples and oranges.
