'Monsters University' joins Pixar's Ivy League

Our favorite pair of inseparable best friends are at it again, but this time, instead of being at Monsters Inc. headquarters, they're scaring up a storm as college students at Monsters University.

Get yourself some 'intern'tainment

You can't help rooting for them. After being laid off from their jobs as salesmen, good friends Billy (Vince Vaughan) and Nick (Owen Wilson) apply and are miraculously accepted as interns at Google. Full of enthusiasm and positive energy but pretty much technically incompetent, they find themselves struggling to compete with the best and brightest young minds for permanent positions at the renowned corporation.

Thumbs down to World War Z

Brad Pitt has indeed changed quite a bit. I still remember his square jaw line and stylish buzz cut in the 2005 spy film Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Eight years later, I'm slightly disappointed to see him in World War Z with a much more wrinkled face and stringy, shoulder-length hair. But that wasn't the only disappointment in the movie.

Cavill keeps it real as Superman in 'Man of Steel'

With his dark eyebrows deeply furrowed and gleaming white teeth firmly clamped shut, Henry Cavill winces when asked if Superman is treated like a terrorist in “Man of Steel.” His reaction is somewhat understandable. The charming British actor should feel very protective of the character — one of the biggest icons in pop culture.

Surprising 'Man of Steel'

It seems as if Zack Snyder's “Man of Steel” is the millionth Superman movie to come out. The plot predictably begins with the destruction of Krypton and ends with Clark Kent (played by Henry Cavill) saving the world, with Lois Lane (Amy Adams) simultaneously falling madly in love with him. However, the familiarity of it all doesn't make the film banal.

When life starts showing side effects

An intriguing movie always gives more than it at first appears to. Steven Soderbergh's latest thriller, “Side Effects,” revolves around depression, murder, medical ethics and deception, connecting the dots in ways audiences can hardly foresee. And it is most likely to leave viewers thinking it over after the movie ends, and probably plants some side effects for future reference.

'After Earth' a disappointing sci-fi tale

Humanity's home planet hardly merits the name-check in “After Earth,” M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi survival tale whose shipwreck action could (with the exception of a scene where our hero scrawls a crude map over Lascaux-like cave paintings) take place on any old life-supporting globe in the cosmos.

Tedium sets in long before we reach 'The Place Beyond the Pines'

Unwieldy, overlong and overly reliant on melodramatic coincidences, “The Place Beyond the Pines” is still better than it has any right to be, thanks to its cast.

'Epic' doesn't quite live up to its title

Derivative as all get out and plainly concocted by a committee, “Epic” is a children's animated film that is more entertaining and emotional than it has any right to be.
