Yeah, I generally like MU more than most other people do.

Yeah, same here. Not only does it have so many quotable moments, the core theme/message is actually pretty surprising and something I really connected to. Plus it ties itself so neatly into its successor in a way that few other prequels have done!

I LOVED Monsters University, it was my favorite movie of 2013! Though I haven't seen it since it was in theaters, what, 2 years ago? I need to watch it again. I also need to watch Toy Story 3 again, I haven't watched that in, I think 3 years even.

I haven't seen either of those in a while. I can't remember the last time I saw MU but I know I last saw TS3 around Christmas.

I'm going to go a little off topic here but are any of you fans of Star Wars? I am personally a huge Star Wars fan (not a big fan of the prequels, I mostly watched the original trilogy). My favorite film in the saga is easily Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, which in my opinion is one of the best movies of all time. I love that film because of it's good character development, great writing and acting, good story, good visual effects (at least in the original version and not in the special edition), for having one of the most memorable plot twists in all of cinema, it's cliffhanger ending, and it's darker tone.

The latest trailer for The Peanuts Movie is out: http://www.traileraddict.com/peanuts/feature-trailer

I have high hopes for this; if this is successful, I would be up for sequels or a few television specials.

When I heard that Blue Sky was doing a CGI remake of the Peanuts, I had very low faith. But the animation, the tone, the humor all seems to be a loving tribute, and I am actually looking forward to it! I am especially impressed with how they adapted the animation to CGI.

You're not alone. Most people I talked to had that fear. I myself always knew it would work. It certainly doesn't hurt to have Schulz's son and grandson writing and producing.

At the moment Peanuts is my most anticipated animated film. I have a lot of faith that it will be good.

Ikr? The three films I am most excited to see for the rest of this year are Star Wars VII, The Peanuts Movie, and The Good Dinosaur. My family is a big fan of the Peanuts and I cannot wait to see it. In my opinion, the 3D models of the gang look perfect and the animation looks beautiful. I really hope there are references to a lot of the older comics as well.

I love Star Wars! I have to admit, I only watched the films about two years ago, when my brother (a HUGE Star Wars fan) introduced me to them. Can't say they're my favorite films, but I like them a lot, my faves are Episodes V&VI. Of course, I already knew the twist from Episode V, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the film. :D My brother urges me to watch The Clone Wars too, but I don't feel like it. Maybe someday.

I've only seen a handful of TCW episodes and I guess they were good. I'm not too into the prequels or the idea of the clones but I found the show enjoyable for what it was. I don't plan on watching anymore episodes, though.

OOoo, I didnt know that! Charles Schulz actually lived near where I grew up and in the town where I went to Community College. I've gone to his ice rink he built plenty of times, but never the Charles Schultz museum which is on the same property. This movie certainly repeaked my interest in his works and I hope to go to the museum sometime this summer.

I'm not a big fan of the prequels, but I liked Episode III. I got a little bored watching the first two, though. What I enjoyed most about them was John Williams's score.

^ Same. John William's score was amazing in the prequels, even if the films weren't so amazing. Duel of the Fates is one of the best pieces of music he's ever done IMO.

I saw Terminator Genisys yesterday in good ol IMAX 3D. It was good but not great. It was entertaining and seeing Arnold again was awesome but the story was kinda eh. I liked Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor but Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney could've done better. I'd give it a 7/10.
