With Ice Age being my first movie on DVD in my own collection, it would only be a matter of time before that collection grew. Being young, there weren’t many opportunities to expand it, but over the years I amassed a great collection of movies. One of which was added early on and became a favourite of mine for a few reasons.
I had no experience of The Magic Roundabout series, with the movie being my first outing with the cast of animals, humans, and spring-things. It also became a way for me to be introduced to several music performers – with one of those bands becoming one of my greatest favourites.
The movie features two of those songs very close to each other. The opening credits – featuring Magic by Pilot. Then You Really Got Me by The Kinks, except this version being sung by two of the cast. It’s a fun take on the song, and in just that scene the character of all the cast is present.
The original Ice Age film was one of the first I ever actually owned. It was one of the best films I had seen. When the second film then came out, I loved that one too. The films of Ice Age have references for all ages, and when I was growing up, I might not have understood them all at first, but over time I did.
I have watched all four films countless times [the fourth less so, due to it being newer], and each have held a lot of thoughts, and all of them are different depending on which film it is.
