You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
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.
Establishing Blue Sky Studios as the new player in the computer animation arena after both Pixar & DreamWorks Animation had made their mark, Ice Age is a sensibly crafted, delightfully humoured & wonderfully narrated adventure comedy that packs in an interesting set of pre-historic characters, manages to be surprisingly touching on many occasions & is thoroughly amusing from start to finish.
The story of Ice Age takes place during the advent of the titular global phenomenon and follows a woolly mammoth named Manny, a ground sloth named Sid & a saber-toothed cat named Diego who, after coming across a human child & ultimately deciding to return him to his tribe, embark on an exciting adventure while braving the harsh conditions & unexpected challenges of the worsening…
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.
Ice Age proves to us that it isn't just about pretty colors, childish humor, and flashy imagery to be a good movie. It has heart and a solid story with characters to care about. The movie has flaws, but so is every movie.
Why is this not on Criterion yet
To date the only good Ice Age movie, and that's not saying much cause despite my huge nostalgia towards this film, it's not as great as I remember it to be. The CGI animation has not aged well at all (especially the human characters and some of the designs of the saber-tooths, though the backgrounds are still impressive and so is the cave-drawing scene showing Manny's heartbreaking backstory), because there have been so many needless sequels, despite the comedy in this being great it now still feels artificial and stale (Scrat the squirrel and his acorn is starting to grow old), the pop-culture references are phoned in, and one of the main characters is given a lazy-butt death cheat that…
Funny just got a new dimension
we showed this at a youth night and some of the kids hadn't seen it before and i was completely surprised
It has its touching and funny moments, but don't watch the rest of the series. They may be funny but their plot and whatnot are ridiculously weak.
La primera es la mas estable a al contar una trama, la animación esta bien y los personajes son agradables, es una pena que la franquicia bajara la calidad con cada entrega.
I'll take this over Pixar's Cars any day of the week.
a fun movie. i try not to think about all the sequels.
imagine being the person who pitched this movie "it's three men and a baby but hear me out...they're prehistoric animals during the ice age..."
Sick today which allows total freedom with choosing films to watch. Should've chose wiser. Blame it in the flu.
If you're feeling overwhelmed, but still want to squeeze a film into your daily routine, this list is made for…
Help me out with this one guys.
"It's Mission Impossible!" is the true peak of cinéma.
