In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny, and the herd encounters a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home.
Both my husband and son are fans of both Avatar and I, Robot and were thrilled to learn that they can now enjoy their viewing experience with these new 3D movie releases! Although my son will be waiting a few years yet to enjoy Prometheus, my husband is certainly looking forward to adding this sci-fi title to his collection. Of course, the whole family enjoys the Ice Age films, although none as much as my son who still can be heard to giggle at the antics of these favorite prehistoric creatures. To his delight, Ice Age 3, Continental Drift easily lived up to his expectations.
