Excerpt: Ever wonder how Monsters, Inc.’s Mike and Sully met? Me neither, since their friendship is so well defined in that vastly superior original film. But Monsters University takes us back to their college days anyway, when the optimistic Mr. Wozanski and the cocky Mr. Sullivan first crossed paths.
Excerpt: Mike Wazowski has always wanted to be a top scarer, with dreams of working the scare floor at Monsters Incorporated. Now he has taken the first steps toward that dream, as he has enrolled in the scare program at Monsters University.

Summary: Pixar remains the benchmark by which all other computer animated films are still measured. I can’t tell you how they will compare, but I can promise you a wonderful stay. If there’s an animation studio out there who thinks they’re as good as these guys, I have bad news for you.
Excerpt: I was not sold on the idea of Monsters University. In fact I thought going back in time before Monsters Inc did not make much sense. Especially when the audience knows they will become employees of Monsters Inc. Guess what? I was wrong. Monsters University is an amazing movie.
Summary: Most sequels or prequels seem contrived, but “Monsters University” makes sense and makes for solid entertainment. It may not be as inventive as the original, but there’s still plenty here to coax a smile, and it’s still great family entertainment.
Conclusion: Monsters University is yet another entry in Pixar's lesser canon, following Cars 2 and Brave . Will Pixar ever regain its footing? MU is a step in the right direction I suppose, but it still doesn't live up to its potential or surpass its predecessor, the indispensable Monsters Inc.
