March of the Penguins

March of the Penguins ★★★2005 (G)

Oscar winner for Best Documentary proves that animals can be movie stars even if they aren't animated by Pixar or Dreamworks. Director Jacquet traveled to Antarctica to film the mating rituals of the Emperor penguin and walked away with pure Animal Planet gold. You'll marvel at how ridiculously far the penguins will go to propagate their species—endless marching over frozen wastelands, working daily to escape predators, cutely ignoring the French camera crew. It's “Booty Call” meets National Geographic, all brought together by the smooth vocal stylings of narator Morgan Freeman. Tries a bit too hard to imbue the birds with human personalities, but the astounding footage wins in the end. 80m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc, HD DVD .USD: Luc Jacquet; W: Jordan Roberts; C: Laurent Chalet, Jerome Maison; Nar: Morgan Freeman. Oscars ‘05: Feature Doc.; Natl. Bd. of Review ‘05: Feature Doc.; Broadcast Film Critics ‘05: Feature Doc.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
