Our movie date team, Kristen Meinzer and Rafer Guzman, review three new movies this week: John Goodman and Billy Crystal reprise their roles as Sulley and Mike in the computer animated film "Monsters University"–the prequel to Disney/Pixar's "Monsters, Inc." which was originally released in 2001.
Meanwhile, Brad Pitt stars in the highly anticipated "World War Z", a zombie apocalypse thriller. "Before Midnight" also hits the big screen–this flick is the third installation in Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy's love story, following "Before Sunrise" (1995) and "Before Sunset" (2004).
In addition to hosting the podcast every week, Rafer is film critic for Newsday and Kristen is culture producer for The Takeaway.
