Top 10 Worst Things About the Ice Age Franchise


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Terrible Animation

The first Ice Age movie's animation looked like it was done by a first year-student at an art college TRYING to fail their assignment. Seriously, it was AWFUL. And I know that it was from 2002, but there were plenty of movies around that time that looked better. Heck, TOY STORY did. And Toy Story was 7 years before. The clearly weren't trying at all.

Don't all of the Ice Age movies have the same animation? I feel like the animation in Ice Age is only barely different from the animation of its easily inferior successors.

Gotta remember guys, that was 2002. But toy story is 1995 and it has better graphics.

22 Scrat is Predictable Now

Scrat NEVER gets that stupid acorn, its getting old

23 Collision Course (5th movie) killed the franchise

The third ruined it, the fourth made it unoriginal and the 5th killed it, I agree on that

24 Diego

Diego Is Still Fine

25 It's Gotten Worse

I have to agree. The first three were pretty decent. The fourth and the fifth one are going to kill this franchise, though. My favorite Ice Age movies in order are:1: Meltdown: In my opinion it was the best movie though many people view this as a horrible sequel. I also think it was a great sequel to the original.2: Ice Age: The original is only a bit worse than the sequel in my opinion. It was still a thrilling movie that I love. This and its sequel rank in my top ten favorite movies.3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs: This was also a pretty good movie with many characters such as Rudy, Buck, and Scratte.4: Continental Drift: This movie killed the franchise with its horrible dialogue and plot. Though there were a couple laughs here and there, I despised this movie and I think the fifth one will be way worse.

I don't think Fox is giving themselves enough time to write good storylines for the Ice Age Franchise. The first 2 were good, but the third and fourth were just awful, and had very simple plots.

Oh yes, for some reason I didn't like the 3rd one, I liked the characters but I guess the plot was boring. also how can manny identify mommy dino as a dinosaur, but not the children dinos? lol

I enjoyed the first one, the second one was good, the third, was okay, but it had such a dumb plot, the fourth, was like a worse version of the second, and 5... I got to see this with my family, and it made no sense

first, they replace louis the hedgehog with a stupid annoying teenage mammoth. second diego and shira were barely in it. now they want kids, which leads to more annoying teenage mammals now! third, some main characters completely changed personalitys,ex. buck sounds stupider. lastly, they ditch granny for some strange female sloth, may lead to kids by the way... when I was young, I loved ice age, now its back to loving madagascar, if their 4th doesn't ruin it..

26 Now It's A Cash Cow


27 Buck Isn't In The 4th Film

He made a tiny apperance while scrat was falling down earth, ( how predictable, once again )

28 They're Not Even Trying

Exactly, plots getting worse! along with reviews.

They're not putting any effort into their story.
Seriously? Dinosaurs? Pirates? Now aliens?

How did it go from a movie about three cool animals taking a sweet little baby human back to his tribe into the most random sequels the world has ever seen?

29 It Was Never A Good Franchise, But They Still Made Sequels

Seriously, none of them were good.

30 There Will Be More Sequels
31 Bathroom Humor
32 It's Way Too Well-Known
33 Ugly, Laughable Character Design
34 They Forget the Fact that It's the Ice Age

Throughout the sequels the directors slowly forget the material the actual Stone Age has to offer, like cave bears, maybe some wolves tempt Diego into attacking manny so they get a quick meal. Maybe they meet that baby as a adolescent. I like the jokes made about the ice age in the first one and I think they should try again.
