    Phil Tippett -- artist behind visual and creature crafting of Jurassic Park, Return of the Jedi -- worked on this film for about thirty years. Roughly a year prior to its release, the director had to be institutionalized due to a mental breakdown triggered by the stress. "[...] I will never, ever make another film like that", he said. Scrupulously arranging a nightmarish world through one of the most painstakingly difficult artistic mediums is genuinely a task that can break…

    Literally just Shrek, but 100x less funny & with awful animation. I mean, why do people say the Ice Age baby is ugly, when every other character is just as ugly?

    Ice Age is my favorite movie of all time btw.
