Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
Saw this movie as soon as it was released with my two boys and we all loved it!!
For me, this is an odd feeling to have for the movie considering I didn't particularly enjoy the first two installments. And this is not the first time I've felt this way about a movie series. Like for example, 'Shrek'. The first two movies were fine, but the third was phenomenal!! But then, I guess if at first you don't succeed you keep trying until you get it right. And nowhere is that more apparent than in Hollywood...but I digress.
Right. Ice Age 3. Our frost-friendly friends, Sid the sloth, Diego the sabre-toothed tiger and Manny the woolly mammoth with his pregnant wife, Ellie are back in this crazy adventure about friendship, loyalty and the true joys of life; and those would be babies and friendship, yet again!!
Manny shows all the signs of being a father-hen as he prepares himself for fatherhood while Ellie is patience unlimited. Diego and Sid start to feel left-out from this pretty picture of happy-family-where-baby-makes-three and they start rethinking their loves. Diego wants to set off on bis own while Sid wants a family of his own. His wish comes true when he finds three dinosaur eggs which he believes to have been abandoned. Once the eggs hatch, out pops three snappy, energetic baby T-Rexes and when momma T-Rex finally finds them she is M.A.D.!! She takes her babies back along with Sid to a hidden, underground land where a few dinosaurs still exist. The gang ventures into the unknown to rescue their hapless friend, Ellie's 'brothers', Crash and Eddie, providing the perfect comic relief. Their mission is successful thanks to help from an unexpected quarter -- Buck, a one-eyed weasel possessed of a buccaneering spirit and a pirate soul. The definite show-stealer in this episode!
Of course this movie would not be complete with Scrat the squirrel, still out to save his nut. This time he encounters a female of the species who's out for the smae thing he wants as well! The tango to the finish is as enjoyable as it is hilarious!!
A great movie! The witty dialogues make it entertaining for us while the kids always love a good adventure story.
The EO's been begging me to take him again. I enjoyed it so much that you never know, maybe I might!!
But if you guys haven't seen it yet, GO! Go now!! Definitely worth the popcorn!
