This week we're back in the saddle with Marc Shaiman to discuss his score for City Slickers, a film about three miserable white dudes from the city approaching a midlife crisis. We can relate.
As far as Pixar movie standards go, Monsters University is a bit of a mess with sloppy plotting and and unclear motives as to who the movie is actually made for... and yet, it's still extremely endearing and funny getting a solid B- for its efforts overall.
Dork Shelf talks with the one and only Billy Crystal about returning to school as Mike Wazowski in Disney Pixar's Monsters University and how the themes of his recent film still pertain to his life today, what his grandkids think of the him, what scares him, how his university days differed from his younger, more diminutive altar ego, what serves as a source of friendship and strength to him, and much, much more
We talk to Canadian comedy icon Dave Foley to talk about coming back to work at Pixar for Monsters University, why it’s great to have a film to show to his kids, rumours of Kids in the Hall getting back together, how KITH was a lot like the fraternity at MU, and if he ever had any roommate troubles of his own.

Monsters, Inc. solidified the Pixar formula and proved that clever, emotionally rich, and technically stunning work could be produced by the CGI dream team at will. Now that the film is (get ready to feel old) 11-years old and sliding back out into theaters in 3D, it’s clear just how special of a family flick it was. The movie remains just as funny and warm as ever, with a rather ingenious central concept strong enough to make the upcoming sequel something to look forward to.
