Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Posted: June 30, 2009 at 10:10 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The third film in the trilogy is superior to the awful second, but doesn’t have the heart and all around quality of the first film in the series; and it utilizes the use of 3-D fairly well in a couple of key action scenes. Diego, Manny, and Sid are all living together in there own […]

Nick Cassavetes latest adaptation is done well but strangely lacks any earned emotional punch and comes across as just expecting your emotion from the subject matter instead of working for it.
