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 [...]
The post Ice Age Continental Drift 3D Bluray Review appeared first on MoviesOnline. »
Ice Age returns at a mediocre attempt. When compared to the other hits released at the time (like Madagascar 3), it really fails. Ice Age died half a decade ago, and I really wish they.d stop making sequels like it is a brand new concept. The plot, while occasionally providing a laugh or two, really felt stale and overdone. The continent is falling apart. but wait... didn.t it already melt? We also get to see Peaches (the adorable baby mammoth who was born at the end of Dawn of the Dinosaurs) all grown up. She yells at her dad, and when the continent splits apart she cries because she got separated from him. I really preferred »

A new adventure awaits our old Ice Age friends in the latest installment in this series: Continental Drift. Manny the woolly mammoth (Ray Romano); Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo); and Diego the saber-toothed tiger (Denis Leary) find themselves separated from their families and loved ones when icebergs begin breaking apart as Pangaea itself separates into continents (thanks to Scrat). But to get back to their families they must learn to sail the seas and avoid capture by some dangerous pirates.
The pirates are led by the "primate-pirate pioneer" Captain Gutt (Peter Dinklage). He and his rag-tag crew wreak havoc on our heroes. After an initial defeat, the sultry saber-toothed pirate feline Shira (Jennifer Lopez) joins the gang and flirts around with Diego, but she can’t be up to any good. Meanwhile, Manny's wife Ellie (Queen Latifah) is busy leading everyone to a land bridge that could reunite them with »

With Summer comes every imaginable blockbuster fighting for your money. For the past ten years comic book movies have been all the rage and 2012 was no different; throw in a few comedies and action men, snd you’ve got the perfect movie summer.
Let’s start with the most anticipated, powerful and epic movie in a very very long time. The Dark Knight Rises shook the internet with its blurry teaser trailers, rumours of villains, and revelations of a thigh high boot wearing Catwoman. The world was divided between the disappointed and those who thought Tdkr was pure perfection. Whichever camp you belonged to no one can argue the fact it is an epic film worth every penny gained at the box office.
Tobey Maguire’s suit wasn’t even cold when The Amazing Spider-man was announced. With the trailer leaving me unexcited, the reviews that followed surprised; raving over Andrew Garfield’s performance, »

The CW’s Gossip Girl went out on a (relatively) high note.
The final episode of the CW’s brand-establishing soap delivered 1.5 million viewers and a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49, the show’s best performance this season. Along with a special Gossip Girl retrospective at 8 p.m., this was the network’s best Monday performance in a year.
Over on NBC, a preview of the new White House comedy 1600 Penn performed somewhat modestly given its big lead-in from The Voice. The Josh Gad sitcom had 7.2 million viewers and a 2.3 rating in the demo, coming after The Voice’s 13.3 million and a 4.1 rating. »

2013 is shaping up to be a pretty big year for animated features, with three original animated films from DreamWorks Animation: the hotly anticipated sequels to the wonderful "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and slightly-less-wonderful "Despicable Me," and a new film from "Ice Age" mastermind Chris Wedge. Over the past couple of days we've also gotten brand new images from arguably the most exciting projects of next year – Pixar's college-set prequel "Monsters University;" Disney's newest princess endeavor "Frozen," and a pair of Studio Ghibli movies by their cofounders – Isao Takahata's "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter" and Hayao Miyazaki's "The Wind Rises."

The Oscars are almost upon us, and the past few weeks have treated us to the shortlists competing in a number of categories, including Best Animated Feature, Best Visual Effects, Best Documentary, and Best Original Score.
With the nominations announcement creeping ever closer at the start of next month, the Academy have now announced a seventy-five-long list of songs that are eligible in the Best Original Song category.
Tom Hooper’s highly anticipated Les Misérables is also in the running with Suddenly, composed specifically for the film, and it should be great to see how it’s received both by audiences and the Academy in the coming weeks.
We’ve got plenty of choices from animated films in the mix – the animated ones are often the strongest »

We learned in February that Guillermo del Toro signed on to produce an animated movie about the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead directed by Jorge R. Guiterrez. THR reports that Fox Animation has acquired the picture, now titled Book of Life, and plans to release it on October 10, 2014. Fox and the filmmakers aren't ready to release the full logline just yet, but we heard back in February that Book of Life tells "a Romeo and Juliet-style love story set against a Mexican Day of the Dead backdrop." Fox Animation has a decade-long partnership with Blue Sky Studios (the guys behind the Ice Age series) that will continue with Epic, Rio 2, and the Peanuts movie everyone wants. But their upcoming slate adds a few more in-house productions like Book of Life, Walking with Dinosaurs, and Welcome to the Jungle. Del Toro has his own partnership with Dreamworks Animation, so I'm »

There are 75 original songs that qualify for the Oscar this year, but really everyone has been waiting to hear about one.
Adele’s title theme to Skyfall surged to #1 on iTunes just days after debuting in October, but some feared the number by her and Paul Epworth would be ruled ineligible for the Oscar because it incorporates elements of the classic 007 theme, which of course is not original.
But the music branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided it was not a significant enough problem to boot it from the potential nominees, and included it without »

I mentioned on today's podcast that my three nominees for Best Original Song for the 2013 Critics' Choice Awards were "100 Black Coffins" from Django Unchained, "Skyfall" from Skyfall and "Ladies of Tampa" from Magic Mike. Of my nominees only "Skyfall" made the official list of nominees, but hopefully the Academy will right a couple of wrongs as both "100 Black Coffins" and Matthew McConaughey's "Ladies of Tampa" are among the 75 songs listed as in contention for a nomination at the 2013 Oscars. The Academy just released the following list of which all voting members of the Music Branch will receive a Reminder List of works submitted in the category and a DVD copy of the song clips. Members will be asked to watch the clips and then vote in the order of their preference for not more than five achievements in the category. The five achievements receiving the highest number of votes »
