I don’t know about you, but Blue Sky is perhaps my least favorite of all the major animation studios working for Hollywood today. Sure, they may have released a couple of good films here and there and their films usually have visual splendor, but otherwise their humor has always been sort of forced. On top of that, I have never though that their stories were all that emotionally resonant or deep for that matter. For another thing, they are perhaps both well-known and infamous for their Ice Age franchise; at first the franchise was funny and interesting, but at this point the films are just annoying and feel like cash grabs. With that said, was the fourth film, Continental Drift, necessary at all?
