Ice Age 3

Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009) is the latest 3D movie to hit the school holidays this winter. We braved the families (some of whom had taken our allotted seats, grrr!), donned our 3D glasses, and enjoyed escaping the winter cold for a couple of hours.

The story is simple, the characters are cute, and the 3D effects take this movie to a very happy place. Manny and Ellie are expecting a baby mammoth, Diego the sabre-tooth tiger goes on a soul searching mission, and Sid the sloth decides to adopt three eggs who promptly hatch into dinosaurs, whom their mother naturally decides to retrieve. It's not necessary to have watched either of the first two movies in the series (I haven't seen any of them), but it's easy to switch off your brain for a couple of hours and enjoy some good-hearted fun - not just one for the kids!

Here's the official movie trailer (alas, it's in 2D):

I loved this movie! I went to see it with my daughter and she didn't move the whole time (which is so rare). I'd definitely recommend it for family movie night!
