Friday 5: Our Favorite Movie Renditions Of The North Pole
December 21, 2012
OK, we’re going to be completely honest here: We really don’t know much about the North Pole. I mean, besides that the icy tundra is slowly moving due to melting ice caps (sad) —oh, and that contrary to popular belief, there are no penguins (true!). But we kinda prefer it that way. After all, isn’t in way more fun to believe the North Pole is a magical land complete with candy-coated architecture and workshops full of toys—the way it’s depicted in the classic Rudolph TV special or in Will Ferrell’s Elf? Come to think of it, almost everything we do know about the North Pole comes from the movies. We’ve rounded up five different visions of the arctic outpost from some of our favorite holiday films.
