I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Ice Age: The Meltdown
The Ice age is melting away.
Diego, Manny and Sid return in this sequel to the hit animated movie Ice Age. This time around, the deep freeze is over, and the ice-covered earth is starting to melt, which will destroy the trio's cherished valley. The impending disaster prompts them to reunite and warn all the other beasts about the desperate situation.
This film is still funny and has a fairly solid plot like the first film, but in certain areas it tries too hard to make modern-day references, squeezing in a pop song or show tune whenever it can. I did, however, like the sense of urgency within the plot, given that it pretty much focuses on the world ending. It only slowed down when it needed to.
Great good fun, and excellent animation. The DVD has a special feature called Scat’s Piranha Smackdown Sound Effects Workshop that got the biggest laugh out of us. I got a little tired of Ray Romano’s voice. Queen Latifah, however, was a nice addition to the ensemble. She plays possum just fine.
More of the same. Still a kids film with little more appeal. Interesting to see some more animals, but where have the humans gone??
Maybe Turbo *wasn't* so bad after all?
I genuinely hate the Ice Age movies.
A lot of fun, but not as good as the first.
