A bear cub and a raccoon get separated from their families when they’re trapped on a log floating down the river. They become buddies and we watch as they live out their lives together. This is one of those nature movies where they made a story out of footage filmed in real life nature, but you also have to wonder how much of it was forced so they could film it and how much was actually capturing nature. The movie did feel long. We watched this on Disney+ so check it out if you want, but it isn’t one you need to see.
This movie was like Harry Potter meets Divergent for little kids. A girl goes to a school for kids with magic where they are sorted into different houses, fractions, clubs, or whatever you want to call it. She is sorted into UDM (Upside Down Magic) with a small group of kids who’s magic isn’t quite right so they don’t belong to any of the groups. It’s believed that the UDMs are less than and that their magic is broken or unimportant and may turn into something evil if not gotten rid of. But, of course, in the end we find out that UDMs can be just as powerful and helpful as everyone else. This movie wasn’t too bad for a one time viewing and we think young kids will probably enjoy it.
