Those of you who read my daily ramblings will know that I recently made the foray into 3D movies in a big kind of way. My television has been broken for over six months and I finally saved up enough money to replace it and I opted to get the Panasonic Viera 3D television.
I chose it because it has active 3D glasses instead of passive 3D glasses and its a plasma so I should be experiencing the best possible 3D available. So far it would seem this is true.
My first 3D movie on my new Panasonic 3D tv was DREDD which completely blew me away and now I have just finished watching Ice Age Continental Drift with my family.
This the fourth movie in the Ice Age movie franchise needs very little introduction other then to say that all your favorite cuddly and not so cuddly characters from the other films are back and this time they have taken to the seas to take on pirates, sirens and the end of the world. Think Pirates of the Caribbean but done with the Ice Age characters and suitable for the 2-8 year old range.
The original Ice Age movie is one of my families favorite movies and it has just enough for the kids and the adults to make it safe but also entertaining for everyone in your family. In the latest installment 3D is without question the big draw but I have to say it is a pretty polished and although its a part of the draw its not the whole draw.
Ice Age Continental Drift has a fun and entertaining story line, has a few new characters to make it fresh and the addition of 3D adds just enough to make it fun without feeling overdone. If you are looking for a fun family movie you can not go wrong with Ice Age Continental Drift. If you can see it in 3D then even better since the 3D adds even more to an otherwise decent family film.
I polled my 5 year old who gave it a 5 out of 5 after I explained the star ratings system to him. My 2 year old gave it a 5 out of 5 no doubt copying her brother. My lovely better half gave it a 3.5 out of 5 and I give it a 3. So that makes this movie a definite must see for the whole family. The kids will definitely want to see it again and again making it worth the added price of 3D
