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."

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
If you have any questions about this review, feel free to message me.
The problem, however, was in the shipping. My order arrived on time, but came only in one of those slightly padded envelopes. I opened it up only to see that my item arrived damaged! Luckily it was only the plastic packaging and not the disk itself, but still not cool of the seller.
Essentially, I am writing this review to warn others that if you order from these guys there is a very good chance your item may come in broken.
Picture & Audio
Like with every Pixar film on BD, it's not surprinsing that Monsters, Inc. debuts on HD with a completely mesmerizing transfer. You will see every detail in crisp clarity and awe at the level of animation that this movie has. Some aliasing appears in Sulley's fur but I think is inherent to the source and shouldn't bother you. An amazing transfer through and through.
Likewise, the 5.1 DTS-HD MA is demo quality. it will envelop you with Randy Newman's amazing score and you will be literally transported to Monstropolis. An audio presentation that can't ger any better.
This is a 2-disc BD set that its full of chocked full goodies. You have everything from the 2-Disc CE DVD that includes hours upon hours of making of featurettes, trailers, two shorts, an audiocommentary, publicity and much much more. New to this BD is an excellent piece called "Filmmakers Round Table" where Peter Docter and crew sit down and reminiscence about the making of the film. Also you have a view of the new ride of MI in Tokyo and an interactive game.
