Random Movie Review: World War Z & Monster's University

For a person who occasionally watches zombie flicks, World War Z in my opinion entertaining and is a interesting departure from the normal zombie movies (imagine hacking with saws, axes and crowbars). I like how the movie tries to get into the aspect of the world's population way of coping in an apocalyptic end of the world situation. The zombies are sufficiently scary and at times makes your blood want to curdle. The scares are scarce and when they do come, it is enough to give you the thrills and spills. It is a good enough movie and for what problems the movie had in production, it does a decent job at  providing good time at the cinema.

Random Movie Rating: 7.0/10.0

It tells the story of Michael "Mike" Wazowski and James P. "Sulley" Sullivan friendship during their university years at the prestigious Monster University.
Before delving into the movie, I was asking this question,  How to make a movie as charming as possible at a university setting. After all, Pixar's ingredients of  making a sure fire animation hit, would be a concoction of charming, nostalgic, fun, and beautiful crafted in the technical aspect.
Sadly, they aced the technical part of the movie, but not the story. In the 103 minutes of watching the entire movie, was seated to a very uninspiring seen it before story of finding one owns identity from the perspective of frat brothers and sorority sisters moments of stupidities at campus minus the gross out gags and pop culture reference. That itself had devoid  the movie with a sentimentality and charming sensibility from the first movie back in 2001.
Overall, the kids would love it but adults will  find Monsters University flat and ordinary. I know I did.

Random Movie Rating: 5.5/10.0

Hmmm. I liked BP after he did that great job in Snatched but zombies? Hmmm. Will seriously consider it.

katz tales: I have grown up with some good zombie movies in the past. Initially I was skeptical of WW Z, but it ended up being quite different from the normal axe/ crowbar wielding to kill the zombie cliche. So, yah, it was a decently good movie for me.
