IMAX - Amazing Journeys (2002)

Like most IMAX films, this one has panoramic scenes that should be breathtaking in a big theater, but is light on educational content. The stories include Monarchs, the obligatory stranded baby Grey whale, and wildebeests and zebras; these stories are familiar to most 5th graders, and this film offers little more to our knowledge of these amazing journeys. You have to listen to the director's commentary in the bonus features (delivered in a boring monotone) to learn some details.
