    If you want to escape from the horrors of the real world, head straight to Pixar's "Monsters University," a delightful college comedy prequel that brings back the voices of John Goodman as Sully and Billy Crystal as Mike.

    REVIEW: "Monsters University"

    Review: 'A Hijacking' Is A Detailed, Gripping & Powerful High-Seas Hostage Tale
