I feel Blu
9 April 2010
What a marvelous addition to Blu Ray Ice Age certainly makes. The film itself is simply top notch with a well written story line and is brought back to life here on Blu Ray. The picture is very detailed in HD, but to be honest it was also very good on DVD as well. Its perhaps not the pristine quality of Toy Story when it comes to Blu Ray transfers, but never the less is still worthy of purchasing it on Blu Ray. Where I feel Ice Age really comes to life is with its soundtrack to which David Newman I must say as done an excellent job with the sound for this film. Which is here presented in DTS 5.1 HD Master. They have gone to town with this format and made excellent use of it, and its simply gorgeous and well detailed with superb balance all around it's 6 channels.
There's not much in the way of extras here, but there is a nice animated short of Scrat that's very funny. Ice Age is a truly fantastic animated film created by Blue Sky Studio's which is certainly in the same class a Pixar without a doubt. It well worthy of its 5 stars here, and a tremendous addition to my Blu Ray collection. I suggest you add it to your own, it will not fail to disappoint.
