24. March 16/17, 2010 - Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009)

Barring the obvious fact that dinosaurs were extinct way before mammoths and sloths were even a twinkle in the evolutionary eye, this movie is sort of cute. It goes back to the ideas of the first Ice Age movie, conveniently forgetting how lame the second one was. There is a little too much of Scrat - the little rat thing always going after the acorn - and the concept of a Savage Land-type place (that's an X-Men reference by the way) hidden under the ice sheets is far-fetched, but the characters are good, the humor is there, and the animation does look very good. Adding in a sympathetic T-Rex character can be dangerous (see all the dreaded Land Before Time sequels) but here it works.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
