Movie Review Roundup: Week of June 21st 2013

Here's this week's Rotten Tomato round up of new releases.

World War Z - 70%

It's uneven -- and fans of the book may be annoyed by how thoroughly it diverges from the source material -- but World War Z still brings smart, fast-moving thrills and a solid performance from Brad Pitt to the zombie genre.

Monsters University - 77%

It doesn't scale the heights of Pixar's finest efforts, but Monsters University is still funny and thoughtful family entertainment for viewers of any age.

The Bling Ring - 59%

While it's certainly timely and beautifully filmed, The Bling Ring suffers from director Sofia Coppola's failure to delve beneath the surface of its shallow protagonists' real-life crimes.

Maniac - 52%

Shocking and bloody. Maniac is smarter than your average psychological slasher, but it's often undermined by its excessive gore.
