Even though Monsters Inc. isn't Pixar's greatest accomplishment, it's still damn terrific and is my personal favourite Pixar film. I mean what respectable kid couldn't like this movie. You have funniness, it's Pixar (who can always be trusted), and you have a whole world of cool monsters. Adults will enjoy it too because of its talented voice cast, deeper message, and everything I mentioned in what I said kids will like. The animation is also stellar and Pixar has given us easily …

With Age, A Roadmap To Success in the Industry
   If, like me, you find yourself wondering what makes the big guys in the entertainment industry so big, you’ve come to the right review.  We all know Pixar has established itself as the premiere computer generated feature film studio, but as if gems like the Toy Stories aren’t proof enough of their supremacy, enter Monsters Inc.  Nine years old already, this one manages to push all of the right buttons of what a CG feature film could and should be while managing …

A favorite growing up! So excited they're making a sequel! (Fingers crossed, hope it's good!)

I recently re-watched this film (the last time having been when it was int he theaters), and found it just as entertaining to both myself and my child movie-watching companion.    THEN: I went to the theater with two young (6 and 3) boys, who were enthralled throughout. The younger boy demanded a Boo doll for Hanukkah.    NOW: Watched it at home with my 3 year-old niece whose attention did not waver (and that's a trick) throughout the whole movie. She was …

Some of the best stories for children have presented their worst fears only to have the menace brought down to size. "Jack and the Beanstalk" works that way perfectly. 'Monsters, Inc.' helps to tuck the kiddies in and give them the giggles, too. Taking near day-glow colors, the Monsters in this fluid Pixar picture are hideously cute. They live in a "green" world where the renewable resource of children's fright powers the Monster community. Looking like the sorts in (Lucas Films, Ltd. is credited …

Since the very first bedtime, children around the world have known that after their parents turn off the lights, monsters lay waiting behind closet doors, ready to emerge. But what they didn't know is that the monsters are as scared of us as we are of them! By watching Monsters, Inc. you get the whole story and a new light what goes on behind those closed doors. Monsters, Inc. is a superb movie, filled with all the great characters, comedy, and CGA that the movie-going audience has come to expect …

"Monsters, Inc." is a funny addition to anyone's Pixar library. It's funnier than "A Bug's Life" and has a storyline that holds up better than "Toy Story." Sully and Mike are a great duo in this tale and it's fun to watch them interact with each other and Boo. The opening sequence in the test "Scare" room is funny, and the following sequence at Sully's house is hilarious. Steve Buscemi is a standout as Randall, the conniving culprit of the movie. He's devilishly funny and Mr. Waternoose isn't so …

If you have small children, movies such as this are worth their weight in gold: the kids love it (our two year old can barely start the day without at least seeing scare trainee Mr. Vile whose friends call him "Phlegm" and his ill-fated run through the bedroom simulation), and since the kids love it, you'd better get used to the idea of YOU watching it OVER AND OVER AGAIN.   And here Monsters, Inc. (along with the Toy Story movies and the outstanding Shrek) really shows its mettle: even …

Pros: Great FX and funny.     Cons: None     The Bottom Line: A fun adventure from the folks that brought you the "Toy Story" series. This is not to be missed.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot. The ritual of putting children to bed has been something that parents and adults have had to deal with since the start of time. Who can ever forget the requests for a glass of water, a nightlight, or a story …
