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…
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.
After two unsuccessful attempts Pixar finds its way back. Monsters University has everything that we expect to see in a Pixar movie: Wonderful creativity, lovely characters, unforgettable storylines and the respect for friendship along with technical superiority and visual astonishment. Like other Pixar movies what powers this nice and memorable adventure is its emphasize on the value of friendship. There is nothing deeper than that. Pixar’s characters learn that the only thing that gives value to a living soul is his/her ability to connect to others. They can only succeed when they unite with each other, helping your friend is the only way of being successful. Nobody’s perfect and each person’s unique abilities can help the group so no one…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Okay so!!!!!! I'm really passionate about this film!!!!!!!!!!!!
So the bases: solid plot, gags that are child-appropriate, but also adults will also appreciate, like the absurdity of the art club, but like nothing feels cheap! Everything is really tasteful and it sets up the story and connection to Monsters, Inc. really well. Monsters University is really, really creative, the accommodations for the monsters in the school and the variety of believable personalities is wonderful and really keeps the viewers involved and fascinated. Really skillful and subtle animation on show here. (It's of note that Monsters University won't have as much weight to viewers who have not seen Monsters, Inc.) That being said, it has a really high rewatchablilty value.
Pixar demuestra que sabe hacer bien hasta las películas "del montón". Claro que decir que esta peli es del montón es injusto.
This might be Pixar’s most uplifting movie in years. It lacks all the depressing and über-dramatic moments, that often make me enjoy their movies a little bit less. But still, this is no masterpiece. I’m not saying it’s bad, but I didn’t go crazy for it.
It IS a very entertaining campus comedy though and for what it is, it’s very good.
'Monsters, Inc.' is my favourite Pixar film. My niece went through a phase of wanting to watch it all the time, and it really cemented my love for it. I think it's unbelievably clever, riddled with little jokes that you only pick up on after repeated viewings. Billy Crystal and John Goodman are on top of their game, and Mike and Sully are such sweet friends. It's a workplace comedy, so that's obviously a plus for me as well.
College/university films is another big favourite sub-genre of mine, but this failed to really get me involved. It sticks too closely to the standard storylines and doesn't poke enough fun at the cliches. I found it weirdly dry.
Dave Foley and Sean Hayes steal the show as Teri and Terry, a two-headed monster with two distinctly different personalities.
Sequência de Monstros S.A. contando como o Mike e o Sully se conheceram.
This felt like when Disney had a ton of TV shows based on their movies running in the 90s. If you're familiar with them, you'd know that it wasn't a slam but not exactly praise.
Just a day of animated prequels. A sub-genre with a pretty amazing success rate.
A lot of heart and a truly fun movie to watch.
