I’d like to speak about the film called “Ice Age” (2002). The director
I think it is a historical film though it has some elements of the comedy.
We found ourselves to the prehistoric age, when people can’t speak. The Earth is ruling by the Mammoths. At then time appears the danger of Ice Age.
People in this film use pictures to communicate with each other.
The end of the story is very sentimental. Friends bring the baby to his father and go back.
The film is full of humor. The main humor person is squirrel, but it has no communication with the main plot of the film. It makes a lot of funny situations. I think that this film is a real masterpiece of computer graphics and parents must see it with children.

My favorite film is “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”. It is based on the novel of J. K. Rolling. This is the first part of the book series about the adventures of young wizard Harry Potter. The story is about the boy Harry. He lives with his uncle and aunt, who don’t love him. His parents died in a car accident and he is an orphan. But on his 11th birthday, he learns that he is the magician and is invited to study at Hogwarts School of Wizardry. Harry learns that he was also cursed by the evil wizard, but he survived. At school he finds his true friends, learns magic and goes through various adventures. Harry learns about his devious plan to steal the Philosopher’s Stone, which gives immortality. The young wizard is eager to stop him. With the help of his friends, he manages to break the plans of VoldeMort. The film is fantastic. The actors are brilliant and the special effects are absolutely stunning.
