Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
They came. They thawed. They conquered.
With the impending ice age almost upon them, a mismatched trio of prehistoric critters -- Manny the woolly mammoth, Diego the saber-toothed tiger and Sid the giant sloth -- find an orphaned infant and decide to return it to its human parents. Along the way, the unlikely allies become friends. But when enemies attack, their quest takes on far nobler aims..
Sixth watch of Buddy the Elf. Twentieth Century Fox Animation have always tried, but never succeeded, copying Pixar Animation Studio’s style. Ice Age surely is their best effort, but still falls short in providing the magic, the entertainment and the quality of animation of such pictures as The Incredibles. As a kid, Ice Age is enjoyable enough, but as an adult, one easily spots the discrepancies between the two studios, for example the ‘stiffness’ of the humans in here. At least this first entry has heart and tries to accomplish something more than easy money - something that I cannot say about basically every other feature that Twentieth Century Fox Animation has released since. It comes to the front in some joyous parts: Dodos! Overall, however, this is just not on par.
This isn't just humor and pretty colors but a nice, sentimental story of how a little baby softens up a couple of tough characters.
"Why don't we call it the 'nippy era', or the 'big chill'? I mean, how do we know it's an ice age??"
"Because... of all... the ICE!!?"
And the Dodo birds... Priceless!
But the scene that captures me the most; The cave painting scene. Now THAT is sheer animated film magic, right there! I cry like a baby every single time I watch it!
the animation is a bit dated, but beyond that, just as fun as i remembered.
The first Ice Age film is a fun, entertaining animated feature that features so wonderful voice acting from its cast, brilliant animation, and a very good story. This is the type of film that can appeal to viewers of all ages, and the movie has a good pace, plenty of good, solid moments, and a good, simple plot. Ice Age delivers an entertaining film going experience, and it is a film that grabs your attention from the start. Although the film has a short run time, Ice Age is a movie that succeeds at being a film for everyone to enjoy, and the cast all are wonderful in the parts they play. The film has some well done animation and…
Fun animation and a good start to the franchise
Not the best aged movie but it is a fun enough watch. Sid was pretty annoying but the rest were fine. The story is decent as well as this film. It's average at best which is good due to the high quality animations that we have now.
Ice Age is a nice fun animated family film with a funny concept.
Ice Age delivers enough fun for kids to enjoy, but not really for anyone over a certain age.
This was the second film I ever watched in a cinema and I have only watched the film twice since (including this viewing). The opening and basically all the stuff with Scrat is pretty enjoyable and reminds me of Looney Tunes quite a bit. The core plot is generic and the characters aren't very interesting. I think it's telling that the things people remember from this movie are the side characters like Scrat and the Dodos.
It's really short and has enough laughs to justify viewing it, but it also has a lot of stale jokes. The editing is also a bit…
This is pretty much the LETHAL WEAPON of animated family movies, isn’t it? The parallels are there. Part 1 is much darker and more serious than its sequels, which focus way more on the comedy and developing a constantly expanding cast of characters.
But yes, it’s true. Not many people seem to remember it, but ICE AGE had lots of heart and a very engaging story. Not to mention some seriously tearjerking moments. But it is all served with the lightheartedness, that Pixar and other studios often lack in their quest to impress the critics with their “kids movie”.
Back in 2002, Ice Age was pretty much ground-breaking. It was one of the first movies that could have passed as Pixar's work. And in many ways, it was funnier than anything the ruling studio had produced. Ice Age hit a sweet spot by combining hilarious scenes with a heart-felt story line and an attractive setting - the icy, prehistoric backdrop remains unique to this day. Iconic scenes such as the dodos and their melon or Scrat and his acorn showcase Blue Sky's creativity at its best.
Very grounded humor, I could only laugh really at first watch. Easy understandable film for children. An animation classic for the older ones.
As bad as they get, the Ice Age sequels will never undermine the self-effacing charm of the original.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Welcome to my sanctuary.
Kinda sorta ordered: Boxsets and digibooks and steelbooks to the Criterion Collection to slipcovers to plain…
