Dirs: Steve Martino, Mike Thurmeier
Voices: Ray Romano, Denis Leary
Running time: 92 minutes
IT is becoming a franchise longer in the incisors than Diego the sabre-toothed tiger, but Ice Age still hits the spot for warm, reliable family fun. Now in its fourth outing, all the old characters are back, including Queen Latifah and Ray Romano as Ellie and Manny, together with Peaches their daughter, who bears a remarkable resemblance to Sarah Palin, even if she is a mammoth (that's Peaches, not Ms Palin).
There are some new faces in the shape of a pirate crew who terrorise the seas. Still gorgeously drawn, still relying on the same story of a family in peril, and still loveable.
Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present (15)
Dir: Matthew Akers
Running time: 105 minutes
SOME of the many sides of the famous performance artist are presented to the camera in this enthralling documentary.
Matthew Akers follows her as she takes over MoMA in New York for a show that has her fans running through the door like teenagers after a pop star.
Though the meaning of some of the Belgrade-born artist's work might remain a mystery (a doorway made from two naked bodies, anyone?) she is a bold, honest, funny character, and there are some moving moments. As one contributor says, "Marina seduces everybody she meets." Besides being a fascinating portrait of a life and a half well lived, it's an illuminating look at the plainly lucrative business of modern art.

Seven Days in Havana (15)
Dir: Laurent Cantet and various
With: Emir Kusturica, Josh Hutcherson
Running time: 128 minutes
SEVEN days, seven directors (including Benicio Del Toro, who helms the first instalment), seven takes on the Cuban capital. As is usual with such pick-and-mix productions, the fresh mixes with the cliched (transvestites included), and sometimes the plain baffling.
