Monsters, Inc. DVD
There's nothing more toxic or deadly than a human child.
James Sullivan (voice by John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal)
make a great team...a great monster team that is. Monstropolis, the city
of the monsters, gets all of its power from the screams of little human
children, and though scarers such as Sulli work real hard, sneaking through
children's closet doors and scaring the daylights out of them, there just
doesn't seem to be enough power. But, when a human child (toxic, like
all children) sneaks into Monstropolis, Sulli and Mike find themselves
in real trouble. They can't tell the good monsters from the bad monsters,
but it's up to them to save the day! [Color, released in 2001, with a
running time of 1 hour, 33 minutes.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Monsters, Inc. Collector's Edition,
and boy am I happy! This movie is an absolute masterpiece. The story is
clean enough for any kid, it is extremely funny (I loved it!), and it
is just the right balance of being suspenseful but not too scary for the
young viewers. The monsters themselves are funny, creative, and very well-done.
Now, let's talk extras, this CD collection is crammed full of them. It
has an all-new short (Mike's New Car, which my little ones had to watch
three times in a row!), the short seen when the movie was in the theatre
(For the Birds), outtakes, the Monsters Inc Company Play (it's kind of
hard to explain, you've got to see it), Monster World (for the new Monsters
Inc employee), a game [pant, pant, pant], and so much more.
OK, if that's not clear enough, let me put it this way: Buy this CD set,
you WON'T regret it!s film is that, no matter what state you come to see
it, you will leave with a smile on your face and a joy not often given
to us by movies. This is a movie to warm the heart, the spirit, and the
corners of your mouth, not to mention your stomach as you laugh.
The folks at Pixar can do no wrong with Monsters, Inc., the studio's fourth feature film, which stretches the computer animation format in terms of both technical complexity and emotional impact. The giant, blue-furred James P. "Sulley" Sullivan (wonderfully voiced by John Goodman) is a scare-monster extraordinaire in the hidden world of Monstropolis, where scaring kids is an imperative in order to keep the entire city running. Beyond the competition to be the best at the business, Sullivan and his assistant, the one-eyed Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal), discover what happens when the real world interacts with theirs in the form of a 2-year-old baby girl dubbed "Boo," who accidentally sneaks into the monster world with Sulley one night. Director Pete Doctor and codirectors David Silverman and Lee Unkrich follow the Pixar (Toy Story) blueprint with an imaginative scenario, fun characters, and ace comic timing. By the last heart-tugging shot, kids may never look at monsters the same, nor artists at what computer animation can do in the hands of magicians.
