Review: Epic (2013)

B- | **½ | +1-1| Kids & Up

At its best, Epic produces images of poetic power, even grandeur … The catch is that the world the filmmakers create is far more interesting than the story they tell in it or the characters they put in it.   Read more >

Review: Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012)

C | ** | +1| Kids & Up

Ice Age: Continental Drift is more like a Happy Meal than a movie. It’s another serving of exactly the same product that millions of families have been served before and will come back to again and again. Its brand-name familiarity and reassuring sameness are its stock in trade. Nothing is different except for the toys; last time it was dinosaurs, this time it’s pirates. It’s more resolutely like the three previous Ice Age movies than they are like themselves.   Read more >

Review: Rio (2011)

B+ | ***½ | +1-2| Kids & Up*

From the arches of the Carioca Aqueduct to Sugarloaf Mountain, from the flamboyant costumes of the samba schools to the sundrenched beaches of Guanabara Bay, Rio is as colorful a look at a faraway world as kids are likely to get without reading subtitles.   Read more >

Review: Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009)

C- | **½ | -2| Kids & Up*

As a collection of parts, almost an anthology of ideas, Dawn of the Dinosaurs is fitfully entertaining … Alas, Dawn of the Dinosaurs also marks Blue Sky Studios’ descent into the kind of crude and suggestive humor they once left to DreamWorks.   Read more >

Review: Dr. Seuss’s Horton Hears a Who! (2008)

A- | ***½ | +2| Kids & Up

One book can’t contain Horton’s dogged heroics!
His stoical pluck shows up all other stoics! …
And it gets even better! I’m pleased to relate
That Horton’s the very best Blue Sky to date.   Read more >

Review: Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (2006)

C+ | **½ | +0| Kids & Up

Ice Age 2 isn’t really a meltdown, but it’s no bolt from a Blue Sky.   Read more >

Review: Robots (2005)

B+ | *** | +1| Kids & Up*

Robots combines the visionary alternate world-building of Monsters, Inc., the flair for gadgetry and gimmickry of an old Fleishers cartoon, and most sneakily of all, the toybox nostalgia of the Toy Story movies, with cleverly worked-in toy and game references — “Operation,” Slinky, Wheelo — that will have adults grinning with recognition.   Read more >

Review: Ice Age (2002)

B+ | *** | +1| Kids & Up*

The lion’s share of the credit for Ice Age goes to the sloth.   Read more >
