Now You're Thinking with Portals: Our 10 Favorite World-Hopping Movies

"World-hopping" becomes spectacularly literal in the climax of the now-classic Pixar flick Monsters, Inc. Even before they become the focus of a chaotic, death-defying set piece that ranks among Pixar's best, Monsters, Inc. does quite a bit with the idea of mass-produced interdimensional portals.

These portals are, of course, simple closet doors – the delivery system that a world of monsters uses to harvest valuable fear from the children of our own planet. When scare-agents Sully and Mike accidentally bring a human toddler back across the threshold between universes, they set off a chain reaction that uncovers a conspiracy and leads straight to that final, hair-raising chase back and forth between worlds.
