School never looked this scary.
A look at the relationship between Mike and Sulley during their days at Monsters University — when they weren't necessarily the best of friends.
There's been an attitude recently that Pixar has been "losing it" that I frankly don't agree with. The studio might be "losing it" in that they haven't produced a masterful film since Toy Story 3, which was only 3 years ago, but their films have never really gone less than competent. Cars 2 erroneously got panned for being too childish, something they were intentionally going for, and Brave pulled out of a terrible production hell history to be an ultimately decent attempt at a standard Disney princess story. Now we have Monster's University, the prequel to 2001's Monster's Inc., and while it's not one of their more masterful films, it is still a sign that even when Pixar is being…
If I could sum up “Monsters University” in one word it would be “unnecessary”. Pixar originally wanted to do a sequel but couldn’t stand to tarnish the happy ending note of “Monsters Inc.” and they probably should have stuck with that sentiment. Instead they caught onto the prequels-area-all-the-rage frenzy and made this film. I admit Mike & Sully were enjoyable characters in “Monsters Inc.” but they weren’t so deep and compelling I had to see their origins. While this movie isn’t what I’d call “good” it’s still superior to Pixar’s Parvum Opus “Cars 2” in every facet.
Listed below are a couple of criticisms I have towards the film:
*The Film’s Message Subverts Itself: One of the better aspects of the…
Monsters, Inc. is my favourite Pixar film which is both a blessing and a curse when approaching this prequel. On the one hand it is great to spend time with the characters again but on the other it is always going to come off as second best compared to the charming original. Unsurprisingly, it is in the interactions between Mike and Sully where Pixar’s latest finds the majority of its laughs and hidden heart, the only problem is that it is marred by such a formulaic and pedestrian plot.
Monsters University explores how everybody’s favourite monsters became friends during their eventful time at university. The film follows the well-worn path of rivals becoming best buddies as Mike and Sully must…
Monsters Inc. was a film that took me a long time to like. I wasn't really looking forward to its sequel, nor was I opposed to watching it. I felt indifferent and that is more or less how I feel now.
Monsters University feels like a film that only works because of the huge amount of talent involved. It probably shouldn't exist, comes across as a money grab and reeks of an easy opportunity to churn out tonnes of merchandise. Yet it still manages to be better than most recent animated movies that have come out.
The Pixar name seems to be a bit of a double edged sword. Whenever that logo appears, expectations become stellar and have people looking…
Perfect movie for eight-year-olds who are also college students.
From the creators of animation classics like Toy Story trilogy, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, WALL·E & Up, Pixar Animation Studios' 14th feature film marks their first foray into prequels & although it's an enjoyable, entertaining & quite satisfying ride for the most part, it ultimately falls short of the quality of cinema we expect from Pixar.
A prequel to Monsters Inc., Monsters University focuses on the relationship between Mike & Sulley during their college life, where they started off as rivals studying to be scarers. After the two are dropped from their courses for causing a fight, Mike takes part in Scary Games competition to prove his worth & reluctantly includes Sulley when his team falls short of one member.
- personagens queridos, excelente dublagem de voz
- não se iguala ao original por perder o frescor da novidade
- excelentes piadas, linda animação
- orçamento: 200 milhões
- bilheteria: 270 / 744 milhões
A maior virtude de UNIVERSIDADE MONSTROS é não se apoiar exclusivamente no seu predecessor para cativar o espectador. Divertidíssimo ao associar as peculiaridades dos "monstros" com as nossas dentro de uma universidade, o filme explora bem as piadas e sua estrutura narrativa é impecável - seu roteiro, aliás, é inventivo e jamais cai no lugar-comum.
better than people give it credit for.
It's adequate, and it also doesn't need to exist.
not one of pixar's best, but a decent animated film
not pixar's best but still better than cars 2 lol
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Tenía Monsters University en mi lista de pendientes desde hace tiempo y ahora que hay fiebre de Pixar por el estreno de Inside Out la he tachado de mi lista.
Esta es la precuela de Monsters Inc y como tal funciona bastante bien, vemos a los dos protagonistas conocerse y entablar una amistad poco a poco.
Como Pixar nos tiene acostumbrados la animación es excelente, en cuanto a la ambientación tenemos el universo de los monstruos, colorido, alegre y que funciona a la perfección, en contra posición tenemos el mundo de los humanos, el cual solo aparece unos pocos minutos pero que llama la atención cómo está plasmado, oscuro, triste y taciturno que hace que te preguntes por qué los…
I think that the prequel of the succesful Monsters Inc. is a quite good movie, but it can't reach the level of its precursor.
Of course there are a few nice gags that really made me laugh, but in my opinion there is a big lack of a good story, like you can find it in Monsters Inc.. There is no real plot and so there is no suspense created. That is really sad, because this movie is very well animated and looks just exceptional. But that just doesn't make a good movie.
All in all, this is no waste of time. This is really no bad movie, but definitely not Pixar's finest hour.
Monsters University was just as good as it's predecessor and it was funny and felt really connected to the first one and it introduced new lovable characters.
