Pixar rewind the clock and send the loveable stars of Monsters Inc., Mike and Sully, off to university so that they can get educated before they are incorporated. The big question is, how does this latest Pixar feature stack up? Has the studio got their mojo back or are they just treading water?

First up in this new series is a game that every PlayStation owner should be more than familiar with; the brilliant, gorgeous and action-packed, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Rank the Films: Pixar

As any regular reader of feeling fuzzier will know, lists are pretty darn nifty. We have a profound appreciation for straight-up lists. This is the thinking behind Rank the Films, a regular feature that pulls apart the pros and cons of a series of films, ranking them in order of bad to good. 

With Monsters University hitting cinemas at the end of June, we thought it was a great chance to take a look at Pixar's back catalogue of films (from Toy Story to Brave) and settle upon which is best and which is worst.

Film Review: The Great Gatsby

The new judges for Strictly Come Dancing

Set across one hot New York summer, The Great Gatsby is a film that always eluded one definitive and quintessential big-screen adaptation. Enter Australia's Baz Luhrmann, known for colourful extravaganza's Moulin Rouge!, Romeo + Juliet and Australia. Big, brash and bursting from the screen, Baz Luhrmann's take on F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby is a film that most viewers with either love or love to hate.
