Monsters University Reviews
Monsters University doesn't have that fresh, revolutionary CGI look or the same catchy OST music as did Monsters Inc., and it's not as emotional or dramatic as the original movie, but it's still in my opinion another good film, though not excellent, from Pixar especially regarding the climax where Sulley scares off the human adults and also the crap out of the heartless devil Dean Hardscrabble. So overall, I enjoyed this movie thoroughly, but not as much as Monsters Inc from 2001, it's not an excellent prequel but it's still an acceptable one.
It was also a good set-up for the first movie. It expressed how Mike & Sulivan got to the stage they were in at the start of the first movie.
It was well directed & animated by Dan Scanlon, well produced by Kori Rae and well written by Robert L. Baird & Dan Gerson.
It's nice to watch a movie like this every now and then! Overall, this was a FANTASTIC movie that is TOTALLY worth your time!
Personal Grade: B
Technical Score: 69%
That's not the case in this prequel, which actually goes back to how they first met, at the 'Monsters University' of the title. Of course, they are immediately rivals, with this story detailing how they came to be the best of friends (along with the usual moral lesson along the way) ...
Personally, I felt that this wasn't quite as good as the original, but it was better than some of Pixar's other more recent outputs.
