Monsters University

I love Monsters Inc!!! It still makes me laugh even though i have watched it so many times and i am so happy that they have decided to make a 2nd one Monsters University.

The film is set 10 years before Monsters Inc and it shows how Sulley and Mike meet. At first they are rivals at Monster University as the are studying to be scarers at Monsters Inc but they then become best friends. The first teaser trailer shows Sulley pulling a prank on Mike by turning him into a disco ball, and it also shows they Monsters acting like the typical college student. The trailer was funny made me laugh.

The voices that will be bringing our favourite monsters alive are John Goodman, Billy Crystal, Steve Buscemi, Jennifer Tilly, Frank Oz and Kelsey Grammer.

Monsters University will be the first prequel that Pixar have ever produced and is set for release on the 21st June in the US and the 12th July in the UK

Check out the Trailer

Friends with Benefits

I didn't get the chance to see Friends with Benefits when it was released at the cinema last year so when i saw that it was on Sky Premier this week i finally got the chance to watch it.

I love Justin Timberlake and his films always have me laughing and this time was not different. Dylan (Timberlake) is an art directer for a small Internet company in LA and Jamie (Mila Kunis) is an executive for a recruiting firm in New York and is tasked to convince Dylan that he should move to New York and become the art director for GQ, which he does.  As we go through the film we see their relationship change from being friends to being friends with benefits (wasn't a surprise). One of my favourite scenes happens when Dylan takes Jamie home for the holiday weekend (her plans fell through) and Dylan gets stuck on the Hollywood sign and has to be air lifted off. The story line is virtually the same for this film as it is for every other romantic comedy, girl meets guy, they fall in love, they break up and then they get back together, so there weren't any shocks when it came to the story line of the film, you knew what was going to happen.

I thought the partnership between Timberlake and Kunis was brilliant and they worked really well together and there were some great comedy moments in there. Jenna Elfman who played Dylan's sister Annie was brilliant, the scenes she was in made me laugh a lot. Also Emma Stone made an appearance right at the beginning of the film which was also a highlight. Bryan Greenberg, Woody Harrelson, Patricia Clarkson and Shaun White also make an appearances.

So if you live in the UK you should watch Friends With Benefits on Sky Movies now.
