Girls Trip Trailer


You might have thought that all-girl vacations were a thing reserved for college kids, but this group of four brazen besties are determined to have one last weekend of uninhibited fun and freedom before returning to the daily grind of responsible womanhood. They decide to fly to New Orleans, Louisiana for the city's infamous annual Essence Music Festival, and they're hoping that their time will include plenty of drinking, dancing and no-strings romances, but - as you can expect - they're about to discover a whole lot more. It seems that one of these sisters in particular has already thrown away her youth - and not just in the wardrobe department - to the chagrin of her friends. Is this vacation really going to be enough to get her to loosen up about open her heart?

Ray Romano, Queen Latifah And John Leguizamo Reunite The 'Ice Age' Team


Ray Romano Queen Latifah John Leguizamo

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."

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.

Lil Kim Queen Latifah Missy Elliott

The 2016 VH1 Hip-Hop Honors returned to New York City after six years on Monday (July 11th 2016) and, as expected, it was jam-packed with hip-hop's biggest trailblazers. Plus, they were all women in a special edition dubbed 'All Hail the Queens'. This is the 8th ceremony since it made its debut in 2004.

Lil' KimLIL' KIM joins honorees at the 2016 VH1 Hip-Hop Honors

Leading this year's honorees at Manhattan's Lincoln Center was Queen Latifah who performed 'U.N.I.T.Y.' and tried to focus all attention on the issues in the press recently regarding racism, police brutality and Black Lives Matter. 'We all know that the world and our world is really tense right now', she said. 'It's a lot of tension. It's a lot of angst. It's a lot of hurt. A lot of pain. I'm hoping that we can somehow manage to channel all of these emotions that we have in a positive way and really do something to change our world.'

Bill Cosby Might Want To Delete The Internet For A While


Bill Cosby Queen Latifah

Bill Cosby asked his Twitter followers to "meme him" on Monday (November 10, 2014), which turned out to be a horrendous idea. Instead of mocking up humorous images of the television star, the social media world used the meme generator link provided by Cosby to create all number of risqué jokes.

Bill CosbyBill Cosby is probably regretting asking fans to meme him.

"If anyone is looking for a job, the Social Media Manager position for @BillCosby is about to open up.#CosbyMeme," joked one Twitter user.

22 Jump Street Review


Very Good

A consistently hilarious stream of in-jokes keeps the audience in fits of laughter even if there's virtually no plot to this follow-up to the 2012 hit 21 Jump Street. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum revive their amusing double-act to poke fun at sequels and franchises amid silly set-pieces and starry cameos. And it gives filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller their second terrific comedy of the year, after The Lego Movie.

Following their successful bust of a high school drug ring, undercover officers Schmidt and Jenko (Hill and Tatum) are assigned by their grumpy captain (Ice Cube) to infiltrate a university and track down who's dealing the new drug whyphy. But both get distracted by life on campus: Schmidt begins a romance with Maya (Amber Stevens), while Jenko finds his meathead soul-mate in football teammate Zook (Wyatt Russell). With their partnership in jeopardy, Schmidt and Jenko must refocus on a spring break trip to Mexico, where they discover an old nemesis (Peter Stormare) on the loose.

Using a non-stop series of gags about how follow-up movies are more expensive and less original, the filmmakers go about proving this hypothesis with amusingly overwrought sets and a chaotic, derivative narrative that has very little momentum. Meanwhile, they pack every moment of the film with witty humour that's played expertly by Hill and Tatum, who rekindle their chemistry with a steady barrage of gay double entendre that reveals the movie's true nature as a brom-com. On the other hand, neither the actors nor the filmmakers are willing to push things too far, so they settle for silly vulgarity instead of any black comedy or edgy humour.
