'Ice Age: Collision Course' is the latest installment of the pre-historic film series.
The fifth film in the animated franchise, Ice Age: Collision Course reunites the eclectic starring trio Ray Romano, Queen Latifah and John Leguizamo. Although they don't actually get to see each other until they hit the road on the promotional tour.

They only went into the studio together once. "We tried in Ice Age 2," says Leguizamo, "but it didn't work because we all started talking over each other, and they couldn't separate the tapes. So they had to throw it away."

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.

Robert 'Bob' Mazur is a federal agent who has been assigned the task of going on an undercover mission to infiltrate Pablo Escobar's drug trafficking business that was rife in 1986. In this film we see Mazur pose as a slick money - laundering business man who can be of benefit to Escobar and his company. Emir Abreu acts as Mazur's sidekick after being teamed together in the staff briefing and they set out to infiltrate the gang by drinking and socialising with them, their main target being that of Roberto Alcaino who is one of Escobar's top lieutenants.

The social and economic strife in New York in the sixties and seventies gave birth to one of the most influential and popular subculture's in recent memory; hip-hop grew out of poverty, segregation and division, with DJs, MCs, breakdancers and graffiti artists providing a positive creative outlet for the troubled neighbourhoods all over the big apple. The South Bronx is incredibly important in the emergence of hip-hop culture, but before there was the abundance of music that exists now there were the Rubble Kings.
Directed by Shan Nicholson, this documentary tells the all-important story of the Ghetto Brothers, a historical gang active in the 1970s. They were one of many, and Rubble Kings touches on a host of other groups that were also active in this period, with first-hand experiences relayed from a variety of talking heads that were in the midst of the street culture some 40 years ago. The gritty imagery of tagged trains, neighbourhood riots and the anti-police attitude that was an undercurrent felt by all those growing up in the Bronx is showcased from the outset; drawing parallels between Walter Hill's 1979 motion-picture The Warriors, the famous 'can you dig it' scene actually went down in reality. 'Yellow' Benji Medendez, a founding member of the Ghetto Brothers, as well as Carlos 'Karate Charlie' Suarez (who held a formidable reputation) speak with intelligence about the conditions that saw gangs grow in popularity, and sparked a multicultural revolution against the authoritative powers who disregarded the interests of the poor and troubled.
The 60s is widely known as the peace era, but clearly America wasn't entirely populated by hippies and liberal thinkers; the violence and hardship in New York's boroughs was on a steady incline, reaching a catalyst in the early 70s, where the majority of Rubble Kings' story takes place. The South Bronx was a symbol of early decay. The situation emerged out of the shambolic Cross-Bronx expressway, a major freeway that cut up areas and divided neighbourhoods without consideration for residents. As they always do, the poor felt the squeeze, and landlords burnt down their own properties for insurance money, resulting in black families being left homeless and in severe poverty. Homicides increased, and the majority of income earned in the BX was acquired through criminal activity; street gangs that took influence from the Hells Angels ran the area, sporting swastikas and other offensive anti-establishment imagery like the rebels before them. Hip-hop pioneer Afrika Bambaata speaks about the pride gangs members had for their crew, and with poor living conditions breeding increased violence, gangs were spreading up like wildfire throughout New York, comprised of all creeds and colours; the segregation went beyond race to class and social standing.

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.
Mike's current life revolves around his girlfriend, a healthy amount of weed and his job at the local cash & carry but little does he know that things are about to dramatically change. Even though most people would think it unlikely - especially Mike- he's actually been programmed by the government into a super agent and has been 'sleeping' in this quiet town.
In order to survive, Mike must adapt and embrace his new abilities and find out who's out to kill him.

Maura and Jane have a lot of differences; Maura has a high-flying job at a hospital, though is recovering from a divorce and a little nervous when it comes to meeting other men, while Jane is, well, not. They're nonetheless the best sisters you could imagine and always bring out the best in each other. However, when they're parents call them back to their childhood home, they discover that it's been sold and they have to clean out the room they had as girls. Going through their old stuff brings back a lot of memories though, and Jane decides to encourage Maura to throw a huge neighborhood party before they have to leave. It's a time where they can re-connect to their teenage selves, hook up with some cute guys and get totally drunk. This is going to be messy.

There have been so many awful revenge thrillers lately that we've almost forgotten that it's possible to make a good one, and this is a rare example of striking the right balance of exhilarating action and dark emotion. Yes, there's a high body count, but this isn't a mow-them-down romp: there's a real sense of pain at all of the senseless bloodshed caused by one idiot's inability to conceive that his actions might have repercussions.
The film also gives Keanu Reeves yet another chance to cleverly reinvent himself on-screen as John Wick, a still-feared former mob hitman who left his job to have a happy life with his wife (Bridget Moynahan). But her untimely illness and death have left him a broken man. His only glimmer of hope is her deathbed gift of an adorable puppy to keep him company. Then even this is taken from him, when cocky Russian thug Iosef (Alfie Allen) steals his vintage Mustang and kills the puppy. In need of closure, John resurrects his past, which is a problem because his ex-boss Viggo (Michael Nyqvist) is Iosef's dad, and he knows that John is unstoppable. So Viggo reluctantly offers a massive bounty on John's head, taken up by John's former fellow assassin pals (Willem Dafoe and Adrianne Palicki). But it's doubtful that anyone can stop the legendary John Wick from bringing down the entire Russian mafia.
Intriguingly, everyone in the film knows this legend except the dim-witted moron Iosef, who blithely keeps on carousing while everyone around him prepares for Armageddon. Writer Derek Kolstad and director Chad Stahelski set the story in a fantastical criminal underworld that uses solid gold coins as currency in shimmering underground nightclubs, lavish spas and a mob hotel in which "business" is strictly prohibited. All of this is fiendishly inventive, with a striking visual atmosphere and an even stronger moody tone. At the centre, Reeves gives John a jagged sense of humour as he braces himself wearily for the inevitable carnage, all while trying to control his much deeper emotional pain.
