Movies with a message

Recently I came across a short debate whether the movie ‘2012’ is one with the theme of Saving the Earth. I was under the impression that it was more about the prophecy of doomsday, which need not necessarily be about conservation. One more suitable title mentioned, especially for children, was ‘Ferngully- The Last Rainforest’ (1992).

That got me wondering about movies with themes about environment and conservation. Two titles stay etched in my mind- ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ (truth is it is more of a documentary, an Oscar-winning title nonetheless) and ‘Free Willy’ (1993). And recent CGI-laden title that eerily showed effects of global warming is ‘The Day after Tomorrow’ (2004). 

Do you know any titles to share that highlight the importance of being environment friendly?
