GSC Signature Gold Class & Ice Age 4: Continental Drift Movie Review

Last weekend I finally used my 2 free Gold Class movie vouchers at GSC Signature @ The Gardens. My girlfriend and I picked the Ice Age 4: Continental Drift as it was an early preview (official show date is 13th July). We went in late so I couldn’t take much picture in the already dark cinema, only towards the end I quickly snapped a picture with my iPhone when the audiences were leaving. The setup was pretty much the same as the other GSC Gold Class cinemas (the last one I went was GSC Gold Class @ One Utama), except this one has a pretty annoying yellowish plastic panel sticking out from behind the seats in front of us (you can see it in the picture below). Seats were comfortable as usual with the self-adjustable leather reclining seat, comes with a blanket and a small pillow. GSC Gold Glass offers 1 complimentary drink for the patron, and we chose mineral water over soft drinks offered. Popcorn was extra charged though but GSC always has the best  popcorn in town (apart from the expensive yet heavenly Garrett Popcorn) so we wouldn’t mind paying for it. However, GSC Signature totally needs to buck up their service standard as we waited a good one hour to get our popcorn served after few reminders to the waitress. We would have waited and brought it in ourselves if we knew it would take so freaking long. I need my popcorn when the movie starts, not when the movie is ending… grrrhhh!
After a good 15 minutes of advertisement, the movie finally showing with the cute saber-toothed squirrel, Scrat’s hunt for acorns which unfortunately triggers the break-up of the Pangaea continent into the continents as we know them today. Scrat has always put up his best show in all the Ice Age movies. Then, main protagonists which are the mammoth Manny, the sloth Sid, sabre-toothed cat Diego came in for the rest of the story line with Scrat running here and there for its acorns. The plot was very predictable, emphasizing the importance of friendship and family sticking together. Some of the lines were hilarious in the beginning, but towards the middle and the end I totally lost interest of the story. For some part when the animal pirates characters came out I was thinking, “What the heck!? Pirates of the Caribbean in animation!?” They did look and feel a little like Pirates of the Caribbean in some way. Luckily it was only a short 1.34 hour movie so it ended quite quickly with a big happy ending. But then again, what else do you expect for such a family animation movie?
