Prequel that has some refreshing elements

sreekirch, FilmCrave

  • Excerpt: It is party time! A prequel now! Monsters University has come onboard by Pixar and Scanlon. Pixar knows Scanlon as their story artist since Cars and Toy Story 3. Now he has a big job. He has to direct a prequel of Monsters Inc. For those who have watched Monsters Inc, there are no big surprises, as we know that both Mike and Sullivan are the best friends. But now they are in the university, to scare people. Hey is this necessary? I am doubting too much on this question.

  • Summary: 'Monsters University' is a fair prequel to 'Monsters Inc'. The story is predictable and there is a severe lack in humor. The personalities and creative designs of the new characters offsets some of that. The last third of the film does offer a couple slight turns in plot. It's another decent effort from Pixar that will please kids more than adults.

Monsters University review

FilmCrave
30 October 2013
  • Excerpt: The film evolves around Mike and Sulley's adventure in Monsters University. It starts of slow then it becomes interesting especially during the plot twist where you would think everything is alright with Mike's ability to scare. The background characters were funny, soundtrack was apt and screenplay though more serious than Monsters Inc., was still entertaining. It's great to see more depth between the friendship of our protagonists and its enticing how they all started.

An unnecessary story to be told

  • Excerpt: In comparison to Monster's Inc. this one is nothing. 3D to me is just a depth. Dont know why movie industry only relies on depth. Is there any law in US that not to make 3D popup flicks??? I would not advise to buy it as you probably will not watch it again.

An Origin Story Worthy of the Pixar Name

Chris Kavan, FilmCrave
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I admit that I have always admired Pixar because of their ability to create quality original films. Wall E, The Incredibles and Up are not just among my favorite animated films - but they are just some of the best films around. Recently there has been a rash of sequels (both released and upcoming) and I also admit it was a bit worrying. I thought the Toy Story movies continued to get better and better, but I didn't think many other films needed any more help.

A Rare Quality Prequel

Looneymanthegreat, FilmCrave
22 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Pixar was once a huge deal. They were huge innovators in the field of feature animation, and their early films, especially Toy Story, reinvented how studios look at family films. Nowadays, unfortunately, Pixar is a brilliant innovator in name only; they still present awesome visuals, and occasionally above par stories, but they are no longer going were no animation studio has gone before. Monsters University may not be a new American classic, but I really like it.

Continues Pixar's Extensive Winning Streak

JLFM, FilmCrave
21 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Almost 13 years ago, I, for the first time, stepped into a movie theater and saw the film, Monsters Inc. I scarcely remember the experience itself, but having seen the movie so many times since, the film has stayed with me. Personally, I think Monsters Inc. is the definition of a perfect film.

Better than Cars 2

Dan-Thompson, Flicks
6 October 2013
  • Summary: Pixar! What's happened to you? Better than Cars & Brave, worse than Toy Story, Up, The Incredibles & Wall-E. Lower your expectations and you'll have fun. Kids will like it.

Good entertainment for the family

Lucy-Power, Flicks
6 October 2013
  • Summary: Not as good as the first Monsters Inc. movie, but still enjoyable. Good for a laugh with friends or if you have kids. Don't expect too much from it; it's not one of the "clever" Pixar movies.
