Movie Review- Monsters University

Movie: Monsters University

Mini Review by Lauren

IMDB Summary: A look at the relationship between Mike and Sulley during their days at Monsters University — when they weren’t necessarily the best of friends.

Review: Monsters University is the prequel to Monster’s Inc. With all the sequels out there, it’s fun to have something a bit different in terms of a “second movie.” Basically, this movie is all about how Mike and Sully end up where they are in Monster’s Inc.

I enjoyed how the movie started with a young Mike. It shows how he becomes obsessed with the idea of being a scarer, as well as how he’s always had to rely on his own belief of himself. Sully, on the other hand, comes into his first class at Monsters University believing he can do anything as he’s part of the amazing Sullivan family.

If you loved Monsters Inc. then you should definitely see the prequel. There are random characters (beyond Mike and Sully) from Monsters Inc that show up in the movie…as well as a lot of fun, new characters. Plus, almost all the main characters are voiced by some great actors like Dean Hardscrabble (Helen Mirren).

Monsters University is a fun film perfect for families…or even a group of friends all in their twenties who loved Monsters Inc!

  1. I still haven't seen Monsters Inc, and I am in my twenties and unabashedly love Pixar, so I'll have to remedy that. Going to troll Netflix for it now. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed the prequel, it sounds really fun and cute!

    I didn't realise this was a prequel movie, but I'm definitely looking forward to seeing it soon. Monster's Inc is one of my old favourites. 🙂 really glad you enjoyed it and lovely review!

  3. Oh Lauren, I loved this too!! I mean, nothing could truly live up to the original in my eyes as it is one of my all-time favourites, but I thought they did a truly fantastic job with this one. I loved all the inside jokes and nods to the original!

  4. Ohhhh yeaaahhhhh..I forgot about Monsters Inc. That was a cute movie. I was going to see it this weekend, but went to see some good old zombie action instead! I guess the zombies won out. As did blowing up the white house too. Double feature day.

  5. I really loved this movie too-it was so cute and emotionally satisfying! The reviews I read weren't that enthusiastic but I'm not sure why because I thought it was just great.
