Ice Age Collision Course Review (2016) | Just Like its Prequels

Hilarious! Okay, so I will be honest. Ice Age Collision Course wasn’t really needed, and we could have lived without it, unless we were driving on a stupendous plane that would have thrilled us beyond limit like Pixar movies generally do. Despite the apparent, Ice Age: Collision Course still manages to pull it off, owing to their awesome sense of snappy humour and their fascinating CGI that makes everything appear stunning.


Ice Age Collision Course comes with a very banal plot. The implausibility of Ice Age keeps on degrading as we caper towards exploring new parts of the franchise. Maybe Blue Sky Studios have been milking its installments too much, so much that they are actually running out of material. No doubt there is always humour galore in their work, but at one point it becomes kind of pointless when there is nothing in their baggage and they still try to squeeze every bit to make jokes out of thin air.

The plot of Ice Age Collision Course is something as dumb as Scrat messing around with the universe. That’s what he does. He keeps showing up throughout the movie to accidentally mess with the fate of the planet. Things that avalanche therefrom aren’t exactly what we were expecting. It toys with everything – the story-line, the credibility, jokes, everything!


Remember Buck? Well, the awesome weasel is here as well, and he is probably one of the best things about the movie. Simon Pegg returns to voice the one-eyed chap who will take you on a joyride to saving the planet. He is just the way we left him in the prequels. Totally loco!

A side plot of JulianPeaches story was an impending steer, which was quite thoughtful. It tried to give the story a perspective and a good direction. Granny returns once again with her incessant nagging which never bores you. Oh and we should never forget the true antihero of Ice Age franchise, Scrat who always brings hilarity to no matter what he does.


I say the humour is way better than what the Angry Birds movie came up with. If you liked that you are definitely going to love this. If you didn’t, well, you are still going to like Ice Age Collision Course for its magnificent animation and rib-tickling humour.

The Equalizer Movie Review (2014) | The Badass Agent Everybody Needs

Even before The Equalizer movie begins, the first thing that would catch your attention is the score of the movie! The composition by Harry Gregson-Williams is sheer brilliance. It somehow reminded me of Jesper Kyd. Sent me back in time. Brilliant notes that wouldn’t let you lose focus even for a second. The Equalizer movie literally breathes on Harry’s brilliance. He uplifts even bleak scenes and makes them super rad. I was swaying even before the flick started.

Direction of The Equalizer movie

Antoine Fuqua‘s direction for The Equalizer movie is breathtaking as well. Every frame has a story to tell and he masters it superbly.

Denzel Washington remains mesmerizing. as ever. His face has this gravity that he pulls off so remarkably, that only a few could nail. As Chloe Grace Moretz puts it perfectly:

“Your eyes are not sad. They are just lost.”

The Equalizer movie breathes on gore. Super cool scenes of amazing kills, bullet time and Denzel’s sixth sense perception are absolutely thrilling to watch. The screenplay simply trickles down with thoughtful words.

The most badass scene in the movie is when Robert meets Teddy. Time stops by when they have “the conversation”.

If we want an agent or a merc, we want him to be like Robert McCall. Period.
