The uses of enchantment haven't changed; kids still need, maybe more than ever, the special comfort of fabulous threats they can control.

It's a terrific piece of work: smart, inventive and executed with state-of-the-art finesse.

It's funny, the characters are endearing, the monster world is cleverly developed, and the Pixar gang really has fun with this one.

[A] fixedly sweet bedtime story and exercise in imaginative possibility.

...the movie becomes a giddy, kiddie inversion of time and space.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

[I] really don't see the point of paying extra for children under eight. Their eyes are still developing, their noses are still small for slippery glasses, and... isn't a trip to the pictures enough for them in any case?

If anything, it improves with age.

Monsters displays wonderful imagination which makes it worth reliving in an extra dimension - particularly the energetic chase scene along a conveyor belt of doors.

Pixar's soaringly lovely fourth feature ...

[An] exciting, imaginative and very likable adventure.

January 16, 2013
Despite its eternal message about physical differences and the importance of love over fear of the unknown, Monsters, Inc primarily remains an ambitious concept film.

It's in the visuals that 'Monsters Inc' comes to life, from the jazzy, Norman McLaren influenced opening to the hilarious, shakycam amateur-dramatic recap over the closing credits.

Another chance to see Pixar's most dazzling premise, now spruced up with a third dimension.

Now in 3D, the filmmakers have created a wonderful reality - the reality of Monstropolis, which like the worlds of Oz and Pleasantville, whisk us far, far away on a magic carpet of fantasy
January 6, 2013
A shrewdly timed reminder of Pixar's early, heady days, when the animation powerhouse could do no wrong.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

This didn't need 3D to work. It long ago passed the kids-wear-out-the-DVD-rewatching-it test.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

There's really little reason to check out Monsters, Inc. 3D in... well, 3D, rather than going for a good old-fashioned 2D screening instead.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 20, 2012
It does well, but not brilliantly: an amusing trifle from a studio whose best work still lay ahead of it.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
December 19, 2012
Not quite a Pixar classic, but funny, witty and visually spectacular enough to be enjoyed again on the big screen.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.25/10
