"We're not especially big fans of the "man versus nature" type movie. Think Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Revenant." Nature can be harsh and threatening to human beings. What we are much more interested in seeing is the awe-inspiring scenery, science, and creatures, and the ways people relate to them. This is what the whole scientific theory of biophilia is all about. Nothing makes it more real than seeing it on screen.
These are our favorites. We included both fiction films and documentaries. You can watch Discovery Channel and Animal Planet or stream all kinds of nature programs on Netflix or Hulu, but who has that kind of time? Look these up and we promise you won't be disappointed."
