grandma's movie review - Ice Age Continental Drift Give-Away!

The Ice Age movies have made Manny, Diego and Sid very recognizable characters, so their return with Continental Drift and the release to Blu-ray on December 11th is sure to be greeted with anticipation!  

In this movie you find Manny, Diego, Sid, Ellie and her "brothers" as well as some new characters, including a boat-load of pirates. In keeping with the "pirate" theme, Fox sent me a fun resource of Top Pirate Films for Kids . . . just follow this link for a look at several great films with pirates! They are also making available one Ice Age Continental Drift Blu-ray for me to give away and a fun Ice Age Ice Cube Tray!

While I completely could have done without the "sirens" in Ice Age: Continental Drift - they made the movie too scary for my grandsons to see for a few years for sure - I do like the opportunity this movie gives you to talk with your older grandchildren/children about family, friends and what to do when you find yourself in an unexpected and even frightening situation. In this movie the animals are facing the literal break-up of their world as continental drift causes the land to break apart. While it doesn't talk about turning to God when facing difficult and frightening situations, you certainly could talk with your grandchildren/children and ask them what they would do if they faced a difficult and frightening situation and how they can turn to God!

I really like how family is held up as something which is very valuable. I'm also happy to see strong messages about how friends stand up for one another and aren't based on looks. Oh, and I love the whale!!!
