Media Match Series (Oscar Nominees)-Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Get out your calendars, "to-get" lists, or other reminders for the new "Media Match" series. When I see two prominent matches in the media world, then I'll let you know!

Well, Andy Serkis was robbed in the Supporting Actor categories, but Rise of the Planet of the Apes still amazes and got one nomination for visual effects (there should really be a stunt category too). Rise was one of my top ten films of the 2011 and even better on Blu-ray with extra features - check it out before Oscar night! ...Rise's media match is, of course, Project Nim, coming to home video on February 7. The DVD version features two featurettes and audio commentary with director James March (Man on Wire). Set in the 1970s, this documentary tells the story of a chimpanzee taken from its mother at birth and raised as a human child to tragic consequences.

Look for more Oscar nominee "media matches" until the February 26, when the Oscars are televised.Link
