ICE AGE: A MAMMOTH CHRISTMAS


582236-ice_age_a_mammoth_christmas_dvd_012011

DIRECTOR: Karen Disher

NOT A PART OF OUR COLLECTION

May Contain Spoilers!

Will we be adding this to our collection? NO

First there was Ice Age (2001). Then, Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (2004) and Ice Age 3: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs (2009). But before we got Ice Age 4: Continental Drift there was this holiday short. Why is this so much better than the rest, even though it abandons any semblance of reason and logic? It has flying reindeer and a human man calling himself Santa Claus!

But it’s precisely that abandonment of the so call logic which makes this escapism work. It’s a warm-hearted Christmas film and not the second-rate, boring and poorly conceived mainstream animation which the others were. Ice Age doesn’t work, but this half-decent and enjoyable short does. It’s about time!
