Matt's Review of Monsters University
Was it necessary for Pixar to make a prequel to "Monsters University?" No.
Am I glad they did? Yes.
It doesn't reach the heights of classic Pixar, but "Monsters University" is their best since "Toy Story 3." This delightful and beautifully-animated coming of age tale is loaded with fun moments and heartfelt storytelling. And while it retains the spirit of "Monsters Inc.", it does so without simply copying and recycling what made that film so successful.
"Monsters University" is well worth a watch, and charms with a great theme for kids and adults alike, of learning to become yourself, and being proud of what you have to offer... Plus, the movie is accompanied by another outstanding new short film.
