Ice Age: Collision Course Review

22 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ice Age: Collision Course is apocalyptic in the most literal sense, with the fuzzy, wooly heroes of the now 14-year-old franchise fighting off extinction by diverting a glowing meteor that threatens to wipe out every living creature on earth. When it comes to kids movies, this animated junkpile is bizarrely, awkwardly morbid: one of the promotional posters reads “kiss your ice goodbye” in big letters, and almost every joke, plot development and idea the movie flings at you is as off-putting, if not moreso.

It’s a genuine wonder how this fifth installment managed to find its way onto the big screen when it’s clearly meant to go the way of the dinosaurs. (And by “the dinosaurs” I mean those baby dinos from the Land Before Time, a franchise that had enough sense to go the direct-to-video route from the second installment on.) The series’ charm has been worn down for years, »

'Ice Age: Collision Course' Review: Thaw and Order

23 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

What's the use of getting all pissy about a kiddie cartoon? Watch Ice Age: Collison Course and see how you feel. The fifth entry in the Ice Age series is a loud, lazy, laugh-starved cash grab that cynically exploits its target audience (I use the term advisedly) by serving them scraps and calling it yummy. Even two-year-olds can see through the hustle.

You can't blame the animators, who do what they can to spark the visuals. But screenwriters Michael Wilson, Michael Berg and Yoni Brenner are running on less than empty. »

This week we have a double dose of space-related issues, and some skeletons in the closet that have come back to life.

Manny and Diego? Check. Sid and Scrat? Yup. All the new Ice Age characters along the way? They’re back too! And you can also assume that Scrat, once again, has something to do with what’s happening in Ice Age: Collision Course. In an attempt to hide his acorn, Scrat awakens an ancient alien ship that transports him deep into space where he happens to bump into a few asteroids and put them on a collision course with Earth. Back on Earth, Manny and Sid are dealing with problems of their own, »

Watch 'Difficult People' Star Julie Klausner on 'Fictional Characters I Hate'

19 July 2016 10:20 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The second season of Julie Klausner's blisteringly funny sitcom Difficult People is now in full swing on Hulu, in which Klausner and partner-in-crime Billy Eichner portray lightly fictionalized versions of themselves as they struggle to land a date, a showbiz connection, or just a quick payday. And in this exclusive video interview with Rolling Stone, the comedian uses her talent for cutting putdowns to call out four purely fictional figures she hates.

She starts in on Denis Leary's character on the FX comedy series Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, »

Ice Age: Collision Course: “Loud, obnoxious, shrill, bright, and just unbearable.”

Ice Age Collision Course review: Is fifth time a charm? Or is it time this franchise went extinct?

Ice Age Collision Course review by Luke Ryan Baldock, July 2016.

Ice Age Collision Course review

14 years the Ice Age franchise has been going on. Almost makes you feel old. The first Ice Age was a lovely little gem with smart, witty dialogue, a simple but emotionally engaging story, and great characters. From Blue Sky Studios, it was refreshing to see a company previously known for handling special effects, step-up for Fox and take on Pixar, Dreamworks and Disney. With every one of their films at least doubling their budgets, and the last two Ice Age films hitting close to $900 million, they are certainly a monetary success. But alas, the heart of the original has gone, and whereas before it wanted to create memorable memories for your child, now it just wants to »

Exclusive interview with Galen Chu, co-director of Ice Age: Collision Course, about the new adventure, Simon Pegg’s return and the franchise’s continued popularity

8 July 2016 3:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This July sees the release of the fifth installment in Blue Sky Studios’ Ice Age franchise, entitled Ice Age: Collison Course. While the film is still in the “final touches” stage, Flickering Myth’s Scott J. Davis was able to not only see some extended footage from the film, but sit down with the film’s co-director Galen T. Chu to discuss what the new adventure has in store.

Working with director Mike Thurmeier, Chu is the fifth film’s co-director and one of his first jobs was to help “up the stakes” of this entry:

“When Mike and I started working on the project we definitely wanted to put a little bit more “umph” into it because we knew it was the fifth installment of the franchise so we came at it with everything we had.”

The film is in part based on a small sequence in the »

Critic's Notebook: Who Will Write the First Great Rock 'n' Roll TV Drama?

1 July 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Denis Leary's FX comedy, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll kicked into its second season on Thursday night, the perfect antidote to a couple of big-swing, big-miss dramas trying to get at the heart of rock 'n' roll. Everybody who was hoping either HBO's Vinyl or Showtime's Roadies would be the rock music drama they'd always wanted (and TV so desperately needs), could certainly use the laughs. Given his ability to balance drama and comedy (see: Rescue Me), Leary could probably, in retrospect, deliver on the promise that's out there in the endless material. Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll already has dramatic elements, which sprang to life

Denis Leary Talks Season 2 of ‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’ and the Heavy Burden of ‘Rescue Me’

30 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When I sit down with Denis Leary, the comedian and writer currently starring in his creation “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll,” he’s coming off of days of edits, watching each episode of Season 2 over and over again, looking for the minute changes that need to be made. Confronting himself on screen doesn’t bother him if he’s working, but he recalls going to the premiere of “The Amazing Spider-Man,” in which he played Emma Stone’s father, Captain Stacy. He had to watch himself in 3-D. “I put on these glasses, and I’m sitting with my kids, and everything was great until my first time my guy showed up. You should never have to watch yourself in 3-D. My nose!”

Over nearly three decades, Leary’s made a career as a stand-up, actor, and writer, lending remarkable pathos to the a–holes he became famous for singing about. His »
