Review: Ice Age: Continental Drift in Digital HD #IceAgeDHD

One of the toughest things about having a DVD library is that the kids want to get their little paws on the DVD's and inevitably one of their favorites ends up scratched or warped because they're kids... that's one of the reasons that I'm so pleased that I was able to review Ice Age: Continental Drift with Digital HD (DHD)! 

If you're not familiar with Digital HD (or DHD), here's a little bit of information about the format and some of its benefits:
  • For $15 you get a high-definition version of the film weeks early
  • Your HD movies are available round-the-clock—with no-fuss—as they are safely stored in a digital cloud, allowing you to stream or download them onto multiple devices from your laptop to your tablet to your smartphone—so your whole family can watch at home or on-the-go on many different devices!
  • You can say goodbye to security concerns! Download your Digital HD movie from trusted sites you already know,  like iTunes, Amazon, or Google Play, which provide you with the best picture quality without exposing your equipment to malware threats.
For me, downloading the DHD copy of Ice Age: Continental Drift was quick and easy - and they boys quickly made it a favorite to view on the iPad!  I also love that we can pull it up on iTunes on the computer too - and eventually (when we get the technology in place) we'll be able to pull our digital copy of the movie right to our TV!  I love that I can add it and remove it quickly and easily from the devices and it doesn't take too long to download either!  What I really love is that we now have choice - and that the digital copy is available before the hard copy!  You can also get the digital copy when you buy a combo pack - giving you a ton of versatility!

If you've had your head stuck under a rock lately... and don't know what the movie is about, here's a little blurb:

Sub-zero heroes Manny, Diego, and Sid embark upon a high-seas adventure after their continent is set adrift. Using an iceberg as a ship, they encounter sea creatures and battle pirates as they try to reunite with their herd. In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny, and the herd encounters a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home.

Showcasing the coolest cast of all-time, ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT, stars Ray Romano (“Everybody Loves Raymond”), John Leguizamo (Moulin Rouge), Denis Leary (“Rescue Me”), Queen Latifah (The Secret Life of Bees), Seann William Scott (Planet 51), Josh Peck (“Drake & Josh”), and Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead). Joining the familiar Ice Age family for this newest franchise installment are some of the entertainment world’s brightest talents including Jennifer Lopez (“American Idol”), Aziz Ansari (“Parks and Recreation”), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”), Wanda Sykes (Monster-in-Law), Heather Morris (“Glee”), and hip hop sensations Nicki Minaj and Drake. 
The other cool thing I discovered is that while you're checking out this great family movie, you can also get some great activities for your kids that help explain the science behind the movie!  Just visit for a great package that includes this fun and factual piece:

No matter which way you watch it... you need to be watching Ice Age: Continental Drift this holiday season - it's not just a sequel...  it's an adventure in itself!  Are you an Ice Age fan?  Have you seen Continental Drift yet?  Which format do you prefer?
