Dan Gerson

Cancer has claimed yet another life too young as it's announced that the co-screenwriter of 'Monsters, Inc.' and various other Pixar films Dan Gerson has passed away at just 49-years-old. This comes following a battle with brain cancer, though he is thought to have died peacefully.

Cars Review


Very Good

Almost every major sport has a companion film, the one movie fans routinely point to as the definitive representation of their beloved competitive activity. Basketball has Hoosiers.

Plus, at 87 minutes, it's half as long and nearly twice as entertaining.

Both movies involve men facing financial devastation who traipse into uncharted territories in search of a valuable treasure that will put them back on their feet. Fortune eludes these guys, but they do discover a monkey - Kong in one, George in another - that follows them back to the mainland and proceeds to create havoc.

Monsters, Inc. Review


Excellent
The Pixar boys are at again with Monsters, Inc. taking their computer-animation talents from toys and insects to the magical world of monsters.

Magical indeed -- the way it works is that all those monsters that hide in the closet and scare little kids only do so because they have to -- they use the screams as energy to power Monstropolis, which exists just on the other side of every kid's bedroom closet door in the world.
