Neil deBuck Weasel:
The universe: A vast expanse of space and matter. It includes all that we see, and all that we know. Since the beginning of time, we have wondered how the universe came to be. A gloriously orchestrated plan? A chance series of events? Or something much, much... dumber?

"Ice Age: Collision Course" is easily the best of the entire franchise. And that is not only because the technology has gotten much better since the first "Ice Age" movie from 2002, but also because of the storyline and the comedy.
I sat down with my seven year old son to watch "Ice Age: Collision Course" and I think we ended up being equally entertained and amused with this 2016 addition to the "Ice Age" franchise. Personally, I sat down to watch this because of Scrat, as he is just hilarious, despite him only being a supporting character.
The story in "Ice Age: Collision Course" starts out with Scrat accidentally managing to trigger a cosmic event that comes to threaten Earth in his constant quest to acquire his precious acorn. With doom fast approaching it is up to the ragtag group of friends to come together with a plan how to save everything they love and hold dear.
The animation style and art style is just lovable, as it has been in all of the "Ice Age" movies. But of course this becomes improved with each movie as the technology becomes better. And the level of detail and finesse the animators manage to come up with never cease to amaze me. It is visually stunning to sit through "Ice Age: Collision Course", no doubt about it.
And it is also always a treat when they get the same voice actors and actresses to return to revisit their characters, as it gives a good continuation to the characters and you easily reconnect with the characters from that recognition of a familiar voice.
As for the voice acting, then they really managed to get an all-star ensemble of voice acting performers together for this movie. And aside from Scrat, whom is relatively unvoiced, then my favorite is Denis Leary as he puts a voice to Diego.
"Ice Age: Collision Course" is filled with lots of laughs and really funny situations that are so nicely animated and brought to life on the screen. And it is especially great because they continue on with the type of comedy established in the first movie and seen throughout the entire franchise, but also manages to add something new to each movie.
If you enjoyed the previous "Ice Age" movies, then you definitely do not want to miss out on "Ice Age: Collision Course".
