To The Arctic
DVD ($28.98 / Warner Bros.)

Meryl Streep narrates this documentary that takes viewers up close and personal with a a mother polar bear and her twin cubs in the harsh frozen wilderness they call home. Meant to warm hearts while raising consciences about the changes brought by warming global temperatures that are making it harder and harder for arctic animals to survive, the film’s relatively brief 40 minutes are supplanted by additional bonus features on the DVD, and even more on the Blu-ray (which also comes with a 3D version for home entertainment systems equipped with the technology to take full advantage of its original eye-popping IMAX format.)
