Pixar’s 14th animated feature, “Monsters University”, has shown itself to be an A-level movie and has opened at the #1 slot (as all the Pixar films have done) in the United States and Canada over the weekend! The prequel to “Monsters Inc.” earned a monstrous $82 million over the weekend, Pixar’s 2nd biggest opener ever (after “Toy Story 3”)! And to top it all off, the film has been receiving pretty much positive reviews!
Have you seen this movie? What did you think of it? If not, do you plan on seeing it? And if so, when? I personally haven’t seen it yet, but definitely plan to see it when it comes on DVD.

Ok, we’ve finally made it to “Lilo & Stitch”! When I made my list counting down the top 13 animated films that I didn’t like, but everyone else did, I put “Lilo & Stitch” on that list and pretty much all you readers didn’t like that! And of course, pretty much everyone left a comment saying that how I need to watch this film again so that I may change my mind. And I myself was actually looking forward to seeing this film again, since I’ve only seen it once before.
