When Harry Met Sally… is just a wonderful and damn near perfect romantic comedy from the tightly and sharply written Nora Ephron script, Rob Reiner’s creative direction and, most of all, the incredibly chemistry shared between Crystal and Ryan.

City Slickers is a fun and best yet, timeless, movie that resonates just as well today as it did back then. What especially works is the core cast of Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern and Bruno Kirby who work so well off one another.

Monsters University might be one of the weaker outings from Disney/Pixar since Cars, yet there’s enough here to make it an enjoyable experience for the entire family.

“Monsters, Inc.: We Scare Because We Care”

Monsters, Inc. isn’t my favorite film in the Disney/Pixar line of mega-hits – that will remain with Toy Story 1 and 2 – but it is one of the most endearing animated movies with lots of fun that kids will love and one the adults will be thoroughly enjoy, meaning it’s not so kid-friendly that anyone over 13 will still laugh.
