Editorial Reviews

Experience the film that captured the hearts of critics and fans around the world in a breathtaking new way. MONSTERS, INC. is "visually dazzling, action-packed and hilarious," raves The Boston Herald. Lovable Sulley (John Goodman) and his wisecracking sidekick Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) are the top scare team at Monsters, Inc., the scream-processing factory in Monstropolis. When a little girl named Boo wanders into their world, it's the monsters who are scared silly, and it's up to Sulley and Mike to keep her out of sight and get her back home. Open the door to a phenomenal world of excitement and imagination that will have you screaming for more. Loaded with sensational bonus features, including the theatrical short "Partysaurus Rex," MONSTERS, INC. is hours of fantastic family fun.|MONSTERS, INC., shattered every DVD-era home entertainment sales record when 11 million DVD/VHS copies of the film were sold during its first week of release. Only THE LION KING, released in the "pre-DVD" era, sold more units when it debuted on VHS in 1995.|Typically, voice actors record their parts individually and never meet their costars -- but John Goodman and Billy Crystal broke animation protocol for MONSTERS, INC., and recorded their parts at the same time. Says Crystal: "I did the first session alone ... and I said, 'You know, this is terrible.'" Director Pete Docter "kept wanting all different line readings of the same line," Crystal says. '"Why am I doing all of these?' I asked. He said, 'Well, in case I change the scene around, and I'll get John to do it.' I said, 'Isn't that just silly? When we can be together and do it together and play the scenes?' And that's what we did. "|Singer-songwriter Randy Newman had been nominated for an Academy Award® 16 times -- and never won -- before he finally won for the song "If I Didn't Have You."

Format: Blu-ray
Before anyone starts saying this has not been released yet and there cannot be a review of the Bluray edition let me tell you this, this movie has been available in Japan and Mexico for quite some time now, and I was able to get a copy of the Mexican edition, which was at one time, identical to the one to be released in the US. It is a 3 disc edition (2 BD plus DVD copy of the movie), this has now been changed to a 4 disc set in the US to include the additional digital copy.

Disc one starts with an intro by director Pete Docter, in which he pretty much explains all the contents in this 'glorious' high definition version of the movie. A mini documentary on the 'Monsters, Inc: Ride & Go Seek ' ride in Disney Japan is also included. The highlight to me was the creators 'Round table' in which they talk about the process of creating the movie, some deleted scenes not included in prior DVD versions are shown here and they finally explained to me why is it so difficult to get a reservation at 'Harryhausen's' if all the staff from the scare floor seems to hang around there!

The Pixar shorts 'For the birds' and 'Mike's new car' (originally made on 4:3 format) are also included in HD format (as previously released in 'Pixar shorts)

The movie is presented in 1:85:1 aspect ratio. The word that comes to mind to describe how this looks is simply 'Beautiful', the colors, the textures, Sullivan's fur, the character's skin textures, Roz' sweater. Details pop up, colors are bright and clear. I had never noted that the real name of 'Boo' is actually in the movie until I saw it on Bluray!

The audio is another improvement of this BD edition. Presented in an uncompressed 5.

This is one of the best DVD's I've gotten to date. The movie itself is wonderful and includes the voice talents of Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, John Ratzenberger, Jennifer Tilly, and James Coburn. As you probably already know the storyline, I'll just talk about DVD.
You get 2 discs- one contains the movie itself (with the "full screen" or "widescreen" versions, as well as a director's commentary option)and the second disc is chock full of goodies! You get "For the Birds" the 2001 Academy Award winner for Best Animated Short Film (shown in theaters before the movie), and "Mike's New Car" (exclusively created for the video and DVD release, as well as an exclusive sneak peek of "Finding Nemo", the newest upcoming release from Disney starring Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, and Willem Dafoe. Plus, if you choose the "Human Door" option, you get a tour of the Pixar animation studios by the makers of the film. They'll show you deleted scenes, 3-D location flyarounds, and animation gags and "inside" jokes. The "Monster World" door is where the real fun starts- train for your first day at Monster's Inc.; see the employee handbook, and play the "Boo's Door Game", which works like a CD rom-type game. Use your remote control to go through doors and find pieces of Boo's door that come together like a puzzle. The kids and I had tons of fun playing this together. Even our 4-month old son laughed heartily while rocking in his swing. Definitely a DVD for familes to own- worth every penny for the amount of material you get. Buy it, buy it, buy it now!

Who doesn't love a good Monster Story? If you have children, you can seriously relate to "Monsters in the Closet". Both my children had that fear, and My niece (who is two (2) years old) has started in on her fear of it. I actually bought this movie so I could show Lexi (my niece) that there is NOTHING to be afraid of. Sounds silly right??? Well it worked! Lexi had a bad fear of Monsters, even the mention of one would throw her off. After a few times of watching this movie, we have since learned there are NO Monsters at Aunt Francine's house. There are NO Monsters hiding in the closets or under the bed. Like on the movie, we've explained that these awesome fury little things want to make us laugh, and have a good time. Because "Our" laughs are what keeps their city going. I know y'all probably think I've lost my mind by now, however I am telling you the truth. I had a plan when I purchased this movie and it worked. I would recommend this movie for children of all ages. It's not scary, seriously a very good wholesome family movie.

Children and adults alike appreciate the role reversal - monsters who are actually afraid of children. The corporate set-up of the Monsters Inc. world is brilliant. The attention to detail is amazing...having Boo draw a picture of her monster, closeups of textures in the couch and her monster costume. The movie shows how learning about one another eliminates fear and invites cooperation. There are many doses of humor - slapstick, low brow and high brow, in order to appeal to a wide variety of audiences. I still love this movie after repeated viewings, and having it right on the computer is great for travel. Thanks for putting it on amazon prime!

Monsters Inc. brings back fond memories of watching the movie in Business Technology Concepts because of the technological aspects involved. On top of that, it’s a really cute story about a Monster with a heart who grows to question his role as a scary monster when Boo sneaks onto the scare floor. In its own way, it teaches a very useful message about daring to confront the things that scare us or we don’t understand. Further, there are elements of the seedy nature of the corporate America and what one might do to stay on top of the heap. That’s where these movies excel, in that they entertain the kids, but give the adults in the audience something to think about.
