Monsters University: Movie Review

Published by

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY
As director Dan Scanlon noted in our interview with him, there just aren't a lot of good prequels. So it might be fair to say that Monsters University is the best prequel ever made. Though it may not soar to the lofty heights of the best of Pixar, this is defintely a solid film, and one of the better movies of the summer.

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY
Monsters University is the rare prequel that can cast its leading men as college students without anyone batting an eye. That’s the beauty of animation, and it’s great that Billy Crystal and John Goodman could reprise their roles as Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan for this rather good little prequel. We got a chance to interview the duo about returning to...

Monsters, Inc. 3D
This week, Mike and Sully swing back into theaters for Monsters, Inc. 3D. Pixar has given the family film a makeover.

It’s been some time since we’ve seen Billy Crystal do anything funny (or anything at all, for that matter), so it’s more than a little comforting to see that Funny or Die managed to nab the brilliant funnyman for a hilarious sketch that takes on the insanely annoying trend in Hollywood which states that all films must include at 73% vampire content.

Tooth Fairy - Stephen Merchant, Dwayne Johnson
If you told me ten years ago that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson would sport a pink tutu, and fairy wings I would have called you insane. But that's exactly what's happens in Tooth Fairy, a family comedy that stars Johnson as the fabled creature who takes children's teeth and leaves them money under their pillow. The film is directed by Michael Lembeck and he literally...
