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…
Perfect movie for eight-year-olds who are also college students.
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…
You're not even in the same league with me.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit disappointed that for the last few years every time Pixar announced a new film on their calendar it ended up being either a sequel, prequel or spin-off of previous works. I know many do, but I don't consider Monsters, Inc. among Pixar's top echelon of films so the tale of When Mike Met Sulley seemed a bit unnecessary to me.
With that said I was pleasantly surprised by a solid, if not original, film. With the disappointment of Brave still fresh in my memory it was nice to find out that the Pixar Charm still existed even if just in…
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.
Surprisingly enjoyed this one. It may not be as emotionally engaging and as ingenious as the first, maybe because of familiarity with their world, but the inspired humor and colorful characters still made this a pretty solid movie.
P.S. Squishy has become my all-time favorite Pixar character.
I remember watching this back in 2013 and being completely shocked by how amazing it was because i thought it was going to be some cheap cash crab. I was wrong
MU was good. I don’t know how younger audiences would feel about it, but I felt like college kids only liked it cause they could relate. It was also nostalgic to see characters from the original movie. However, I feel like Pixar movies lost their substance and deeper morals that made them so enjoyable and memorable to watch. MU was a good movie, but it was very surface-leveled. It didn’t make me feel or think much after leaving the theatre, and that’s what I loved about the older Pixar movies.
A slip-up for Pixar. Nowhere near as good as the predecessor, not even in the same ballpark.
I love the first film but found this sequel a real chore, basically churning through the same ideas in a different setting.
Nunca fue lo que se esperaba.
A solid entry into the Pixar canon. Even if it doesn't have the trademark innovation and deep, emotional touch of the best of Pixar's movies, it is still decently entertaining and colorful. The movie also does a solid job expanding on the world of Monsters, Inc.
Top notch animation as expected, but the first part of the story didn't quite work for me. Once the scare games started, all was well though. Some of the characters were quite clichéd though and I think a prequel for Monsters Inc could and should have been different!
Help me out with this one guys.
"It's Mission Impossible!" is the true peak of cinéma.
bad literally starts at cars 2, pixar really can't do wrong.
