Reviews: Monsters University & World War Z

This double feature review was originally posted in my column atTowleroad

Another Month.Another Apocalypse

If the world can be powered by screams,asMonsters,Incand its new prequelMONSTERS UNIVERSITYclaim,then we've surely got a surplus to run on for decades to come.The horror genre in all its shapes,sizes and moods (including children's film) has rarely,if ever,been more popular.Brad Pitt warns a surely soon-to-be zombified family inWORLD WAR Zwho have holed up in their apartment that "movement is life".They should run!But where are they supposed to run exactly?Zombies,werewolves,vampires,serial killers,and monsters are everywhere on film and television.Even outside the horror genre,dystopias (Hunger Gamesanyone?) or apocalypse awaits;at some point every superhero and action movie now blows its (budget) load on laying waste to New York City and/or its counterparts across the Globe.If pop culture is mass catharsis for our intangible mood,than we are all terrified children and in need of much therapy.

Apologies for the armchair psychology but this must surely be why we've made our zombies crush-worthy (Warm Bodiesjust arrived from Netflix as I was typing this,no joke,-Hiiii,Nic Hoult!),our vampires twinkly,and our monsters cuddly.I mean just look at this guy "Art"to your left!He's practically built for wrap-around hugs...

Best Written TV Shows?

If you haven't read the 101 Best Written Television Series list (voted on by the Writers Guild of America),chances are you've been on a wee internet break for the past 24 hours.But I kinda have been (#sorryboutit) so I've included it here for discussion purposes and with a few notes...

1.The Sopranos
3.The Twilight Zone
4.All in the Family
6.The Mary Tyler Moore Show
7.Mad Men
9.The Wire
10.The West Wing

Mad Men(for many years now the best show on television) has won 11 WGA nominations and 6 wins in its six year run...but what I find fascinating is when groups like the WGA vote for something they didn't originally get behind in a big way;The Wire,for example, makes their top ten all time list despite a measily 3 nominations and 1 win in its entire five year run.

91 more series after the jump

Conversations with Link People

Two must reads
Monkey Seea terrific insightful piece on the current state of the Romantic Comedy and what's wrong with it.Hint: It's not the common complaint that there aren't enough believable obstacles in modern romance.The most surprising bit -- but I totally was sold on it -- was how today's internet sport of actress-hating (see what's happening with Hathaway and what often happens) is part of the problem.
