Ice Age: Collision Course Review

Good

With its fifth feature-length adventure, this franchise continues its preposterous journey at full tilt. As before, it's the zippy writing, lively vocal work and colourful animation that hold the interest. The story is merely a framework on which the cast and crew can hang a series of rapid-fire jokes, pop culture references and nonsensical action sequences. And it's still mindless fun.

After their previous escapades, the expanding herd of prehistoric critters is living a happy life together, thinking about love. Mammoths Manny and Ellis (voiced by Ray Romano and Queen Latifah) are struggling with the idea that their daughter Peaches (Keke Palmer) has fallen for the too-cheerful Julius (Adam Devine). Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo) has just been dumped and feels like he'll never find a partner. And tigers Diego and Shira (Denis Leary and Jennifer Lopez) worry that their violent nature will make them terrible parents. Then suddenly there's a bigger issue to worry about: a giant asteroid is heading for Earth, threatening them with extinction. With the help of nutty weasel Buck (Simon Pegg), they come up with an idea to save the planet. They also discover a magical place called Geotopia, ruled by the groovy Shangri Llama (Jesse Tyler Ferguson).

Yes, the plot is utterly insane, especially as it is driven by the antics of franchise star Scrat, who discovers a flying saucer in the ice, activates it and heads into space, where his acorn-hunting antics trigger all sorts of mayhem back on Earth. But then this series has never had anything to do with science or biology, throwing random animals together (the dinosaurs make another appearance) for comical value while cranking up whatever suspense the writers can think of to add some momentum. They also of course pack scenes with sweet "family values" moments, plus a sideswipe at climate change deniers who refuse to acknowledge the possibility of impending doom.

Most people are familiar with the big bang theory but not many people know just how significant Scrat is to the whole preceding. After a fluke accident (whilst trying to protect his beloved acorn) Scrat discovers a frozen alien spaceship and soon begins a collision course which will change the world forever.

Jon Stewart's Final 'Daily Show' Guests Revealed


Jon Stewart Amy Schumer Denis Leary Louis C.K. Donald Trump

As he enters the final week of his 16 year long tenure as host of ‘The Daily Show’, Jon Stewart has revealed the three guests he’ll be inviting onto the show before the final episode next Thursday, details of which remain shrouded in secrecy.

CNN Money reports that Louis C.K., Denis Leary and Amy Schumer – all friends of the departing host – will be appearing on Monday through Wednesday next week before the very last Stewart-fronted edition on August 6th. Schumer, of course, was recently revealed as one of the names Stewart was interested this year to replace him on the Comedy Central chat show, though she turned it down. Current cast member Trevor Noah has already been named as Stewart's successor.

Draft Day Review


OK

Essentially this year's Moneyball, but set in American football rather than baseball, this fast-paced drama is brightly made with an especially strong cast. But only die-hard fans will be able to drum up much interest in the plot, which is played as if it's the most important thing on earth. This insular approach is seriously alienating for audience members with even the slightest sense of perspective about life. Thankfully, the actors are likeable and entertaining.

It's set over the 12 hours leading up to the NFL draft, when teams select the top players from university teams. In Cleveland, manager Sonny (Kevin Costner) is struggling to hang on to his job, arguing with Coach Penn (Denis Leary) about who should be the first pick. And when he swaps with another team for the top selection, the team owner (Frank Langella) pressures Sonny to take the most highly desired player in the field (Josh Pence). But Sonny has his doubts, and amid backroom dealings and frantic last-minute swaps, he also looks at another promising player (Chadwick Boseman) while making sure the team's current quarterback (Tom Welling) is up to his job. Meanwhile, Sonny and the team's financial manager Ali (Jennifer Garner) are in a secret relationship and have just found out that they're pregnant.

Most of this takes place during phone calls, but director Ivan Reitman manages to make this visually intriguing using whizzy split-screen trickery. And while Garner's character feels utterly irrelevant, like a distraction to the main football plot , she adds the badly needed human interest element, as do two other actresses in smaller roles: Ellen Burstyn and Rosanna Arquette as Sonny's mother and ex-wife, respectively. There are also strong cameos from the likes of Sean Combs as a high-powered agent and Sam Elliot as a sporting veteran. And it's all anchored effortlessly by Costner's affable charm, providing resonance in Sonny's attempt to play a long game while being pushed to make the flashier decisions.

Peter Parker is facing a period of deep confusion in every aspect of his life. No longer is everything black and white, nor is it easy to know what the right thing to do is anymore. He's struggling to cope with the death of his dear Uncle Ben, while still feeling unfamiliar with his past in regards to his parents. He's also trying to hold down a relationship with Gwen Stacy, but she ultimately adds to his troubles when she finds herself in a dilemma of her own. Meanwhile in his professional capacity as Spider-Man, he's not finding it easy to differentiate between the villains, the heroes and the just plain hard-done by. He faces deadly battles with the formidable Rhino and the rage-filled Electro; the latter of who it turns out is just as frightened of his own power as everybody else is. It turns out that there is a darker force happening elsewhere, and when his friend Harry Osborn returns, he starts to see OsCorp's sinister involvement.

Denis Leary's 'Sirens' Fails To Lure The Critics - Reviews Roundup


Denis Leary Kevin Daniels

Loosly based upon the British series of the same name, Sirens follows three narcissistic, self-destructive paramedics with difficult interpersonal relationships as they try to save everyday Americans’ lives. The premise has been set in stone and was critically well ercieved in the U.K, but has Denis Leary’s adaption captured the essence of the original?

Sirens From Left to right: Jessica McNamee, Kevin Daniels, Kevin Bigley and Michael Mosley star in 'Sirens'

It would appear not. The critics haven’t slated Sirens, which is set to debut tonight on the USA channel at 10/9 Central, but positive reviews are hard to come by, and the general consensus is that of ‘could do better’ and ‘distinctly average’.
