Ice Age: Continental Drift.

Many many moons ago, (about 4 years) I went to the movies with a close friend of mine, the photographer Audrey Amelie to see Ice Age 2: The Meltdown, and I had an amazing time.  Ever since then I have a really positive association with anything Ice Age, and since the first time I saw the new short called “Scrat’s Continental Crack-Up”, I’m pretty sure I’ve watched it no less than 65 times.  The short is almost like a DVD bonus movies that you get now a days, and features Scrat doing what he does best, freaking out, and chasing a single acorn.  For those of you who have never seen any of the Ice Age movies, Scrat (pictured above) is a character who’s story line in the movies is totally separate from anything else going on in the movie, but as the movie progresses, his story always aligns with the main story arc.  So it’s interesting that he was given his own moment in the spotlight, and although it’s relatively short, it’s still quite enjoyable.  (And one of the few family friendly things on this blog.)  Click the picture to watch the movie.
