DVD - Ice Age : Dawn of the Dinosaurs

by - 11/10/2009

Get ready, for the dawn of a new age! Manny, Sid, Diego and Ellie are back for more pre-hysterical hijinks in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. The third film in the outrageously popular Ice Age franchise, the sub-zero heroes return another wild and fun adventure. Scrat is still trying to nab the ever-elusive nut (while maybe finding true love); Manny and Ellie await the birth of their mini-mammoth; Diego the saber-toothed tiger wonders if he’s growing too “soft” hanging with his pals and Sid the sloth gets into trouble when he creates his own makeshift family by hijacking some dinosaur eggs. On a mission to rescue the hapless Sid, the gang ventures into a mysterious underground world, where they have some close encounters with dinosaurs, battle flora and fauna, run amuck, and meet a relentless, one-eyed dino-hunting weasel named Buck.

The beginning was way too dull, for kids and adults alike. But once the herd goes into the underground world (in the tradition of 'Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne'), the adventures and hi-jinks begin as does the laughter. From there on, it's fun, fun, fun. I have to say, Scrat, the saber-toothed chipmunk (or is it a squirrel?), is the star of the show for all he shows up only now and then, in everlasting quest for the acorn. Thankfully there's a separate dvd in the Double Dvd combo pack, which has, among other things, a ton of short features starring this indefatigable rodent. We also fell in love with Buck - hopefully we'll see more of this Aussie-accented, daredevil weasel!

For more details, keep reading!
