Ice Age 2

We went to see Ice Age 2 last night I would give it a 7 or 8 out of 10. Obviously the movie doesn't break any new ground and won't change your life. If you go to a movie like Ice Age 2 and expect this to happen, though, you probably don't follow movies very much. 

That said, I did enjoy the movie.  Any movie that looks that good (the CGI animation) and makes me smile is worth the $6 for the movie ticket.  There were a few new characters in this one, such as the possum brothers who added to the fun of the film.  I also enjoyed the little saber-toothed squirrel, Scrat, who was still trying to eat the elusive acorn. 

The movie is a buddy film with the main characters sticking together to reach their goal. They whole time I was watching the movie I was trying to come up with story ideas.  You never know where you will find inspiration. 

I recommend the movie to anyone looking to forget their worries for an hour while watching a well crafted movie.   Just don't expect it to break any new ground.

  1. And did you come up with any? Story ideas, that is.

    I’ve heard mixed reviews of Ice Age 2, even to the point of a mother being woken by her offspring at the end of the film. I think I’ll wait for the DVD.

  2. Sharon,
    I didn’t have concrete story ideas, but I did have some ideas for a story I have started, but lost steam on.

    I could see how reviews on Ice Age 2 could be mixed. Like I said, it doesn’t break any new ground, and sticks to the formula of these movies.
