It's 20,000 years ago and there's a bit of a nip in the air as the Ice Age kicks off. Manfred the well-meaning mammoth, Sid the fast-talking sloth and Diego the duplicitous sabre-tooth tiger form a reluctant and unlikely alliance when they come across a helpless human baby. As they try to return the tot to his migrating tribe, the trio must battle more than just the elements in this harsh world of predators and prey. There's plenty of light relief from the dramatic tension and superb action sequences, notably in the form of the brilliant comic invention Scrat, an apparently insane sabre-tooth squirrel who steals any scene in which he--and his acorn—appear (although a flock of keen but hapless dodos give him a close run for the film's comic laurels).
Featuring the voice talents of Ray Romano, Denis Leary and John Leguizamo, Ice Age is a thrilling, chilling comedy adventure that's undeniably cool.
Garfield the Movie
Jim Davis's self-centered, lasagne-loving cat Garfield becomes a star of the big screen in this live action/CGI family comedy adapted from the popular comic strip. Jon Arbuckle (Breckin Meyer) and his pet cat Garfield (voiced by Bill Murray) live in harmony together - until Jon introduces a new member to the family: Odie the loveable pooch. Jon adores Odie, not least because having two pets means twice as many trips to visit the the vet, Dr Liz Wilson (Jennifer Love Hewitt), with whom he is totally besotted. But Garfield is less keen, and orchestrates a 'dognapping' that he hopes should get rid of his rival once and for all.
Rex is Hollywood's top-grossing canine. He is known for his extreme athletic abilities and diva-like demeanor. His perks package, rivaling that of any A-list celebrity, includes Kobe beef, a poodle harem, and a diamond collar. Unfortunately an accident that occurs while Rex is shooting a commercial leads his handlers to presume he's dead. But Rex is merely lost - alone, filthy and unrecognisable in an unfamiliar city. Chased by animal control, he takes refuge in grubby abandoned lofts, a far cry from his former luxurious lifestyle.
Starring Josh Hutcherson, Bruce Greenwood, Dash Mihok, Steven Culp, Bill Nunn
