The Coen Brothers are master craftsmen when it comes to making films, so expectations were high for Inside Llewyn Davis. Thankfully, it delivers as the picture brings us into a dark whirl of emotion that comes when nothing appears to be going your way, combined with a excellent folk soundtrack backing it up.

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.

Interview: Billy Crystal and John Goodman on 'Monsters University'

Published by

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 UNIVERSITY
Pixar's big summer movie this year is Monsters University, a prequel to the beloved Monsters, Inc., which puts Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James P. "Sully" Sullivan (John Goodman) in college as roommates who don't get along (at least at first) amongst an assortment of other scare students and would-be scarers.  The film opens in less...

The Hangover Part III: Movie Review

Published by

THE HANGOVER PART III
When The Hangover hit screens in 2009, it was a breath of fresh air after Judd Apatow and his consortium took over American comedies.  This was no feel-good comedy about people learning lessons, it was about guys doing dumb things they couldn't remember while in Vegas. It also launched Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper as movie stars. The second film,...

It's only been a couple of years since we last saw a Joel and Ethan Coen movie (True Grit) pop up in theaters, but for some fans including myself it feels like an eternity. Thankfully the two creative minds behind movies like Barton FinkNo Country for Old Men and many other films are back with their latest called Inside Llewyn...

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY
Pixar is putting out animated films once a year, and so 2013's big animated movie for the studio is Monsters University, their prequel to Monsters, Inc. The film shows how James P. Sullivan (John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) came to work together and be friends, but it looks like their relationship didn't start out that well....

'Inside Llewyn Davis' Trailer: The New Folksy Coen Brothers Movie

Published by

Inside Llewyn Davis
Like any good cinephile, we treat the release of a new Coen brothers movie as an event. Their latest, Inside Llewyn Davis, is the first in twenty years not to be shot by Roger Deakins, and tells the story of a New York folk singer in the 60's. After their recent run of movies (No Country for Old Men, Burn After...

Monsters, Inc. 3D

It's mainly to generate extra cash during the holidays, but also to prepare us for what's coming. Next summer, the studio's releasing Monsters University, the prequel to the 2001 original. So does the 3D re-release bring anything new to the table?

Everybody make way for the behemoth known as Argo. When Ben Affleck's latest movie first came out in theaters, every other film that came out before it was put in second place, awards-wise. It helps that Argo is a magnificent flick . Currently Oscar predictors are convinced the picture will have Oscar fame and glory. But will the front runner stay that way...

'Flight' Offers an Extended TV Spot

Flight
It feels weird that Robert Zemeckis's return to live action filmmaking isn't a little more buzzed about. The man directed Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Forrest Gump and Cast Away. But spending nearly a decade chasing motion capture technology (only to be trumped by James...

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY
With Brave hitting theaters this Friday, it's no surprise that Pixar has included a teaser for their next film Monsters University. But it's their marketing strategy where they've failed. They've offered four teasers that all pretty much say and do the same thing. Check them out...

Ben Affleck in Argo
Ben Affleck's Argo looks like a crazy-awesome, intense semi-comedy. Whatever one expected of the auteur behind Gone Baby Gone and The Town, it's hard to guess this would be the project. During the Carter Administration, an American embassy was raided and six of its employees went into hiding. Ben Affleck's character...

From fairy tales on, the supernatural and scary elements of children's entertainment has long been celebrated and decried. It all depends on the kids, but for every scaredy cat, there's the child who wants to watch Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas on a loop. ParaNorman is the latest entry in the genre of macabre children's tales, and...

Tom Hanks in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Is Tom Hanks Old Yeller in Stephen Daldry's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close? It seems likely. Honestly, it's surprising that it's taken ten years for Hollywood to make a film that uses (and perhaps exploits) the tragedy of September 11, 2001 to make a movie about death (and perhaps a chance to feel good about being alive). Hanks stars with newcomer Thomas Horn,...
