Movie Review.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised by Pixar's latest all digital movie offering, Monsters Inc. I did not have too high expectations for the movie, thinking that there was no way it could top this years smash hit Shrek. Well I'm happy to report that although it is perhaps not quite as good as what Shrek was, Monster Inc. is still an excellent movie and a must see for all animation lovers.

What's more the story is delightfully adult in its theme of plain working grunt monsters just wanting to do a honest day's work, but being sidelined by the company politics which threaten their livelihoods. The computer animation is of course absolutely superb as we have come to expect from Pixar's past movies Toy Story 1 & 2 and A Bug's Life. On the main green hairy monsters body, 'Sulley' ( voice by John Goodman) you can see every individual strand of hair which ripples as he moves. Monsters Inc. also moves at a cracking pace, so much so you might need multiple viewings to really appreciate all the subtle things happening in the background at times. But re-watching Monsters Inc. should not be such a hardship believe me. You are sure to crack up every time a 23-19 event occurs.

The sound at the V & A I'm happy to report back was really good. The same cannot not be said for their new very narrow hip pinching seats. Anyway there are plenty of surrounds used, with enough great bass to make your trousers flap. Monsters Inc. will be a killer DVD when it gets released sometime next year. For now Monsters Inc. is one of those holiday movies you cannot afford to miss. 9 /10

A film review by Steve Rhodes
Copyright 2001 Steve Rhodes

It's a question of scale. On an absolute scale, Pixar's MONSTERS, INC. is an imaginative, funny and beautifully computer generated film that's a terrific choice for the whole family.

The problem comes from comparison with all of the Pixar films (TOY STORY, A BUG'S LIFE and TOY STORY 2) that have come before it. Relative to them, MONSTERS, INC. is a bit of a disappointment, being more thinly plotted and containing almost no memorable lines. The lead characters are well drawn, but the others are just barely sketched in (double pun intended).

The movie starts quite well by providing a great warm-up act. I'd call it a cartoon except that it's really a computer animated short story. Called FOR THE BIRDS, it is completely adorable, is fast paced and serves brilliantly as the appetizer for another Pixar main course.

The plot, as we all know, having seen the trailers about a million times, concerns the monsters who live in kids' closets and who come out to scare them at night. The monsters incorrectly believe that kids are toxic, so the monsters are much more scared of the kids than the kids are of the monsters.

Monsters, Inc. is a company that is bottling kids' screams as a power source. The corporation's number one frightener currently is James P. 'Sulley' Sullivan (John Goodman), who is aided by his wisecracking sidekick Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal). Number two and closing in fast is the evil Randall Boggs (Steve Buscemi).

One disastrous night, Sulley accidentally lets out a toddler, whom he nicknames Boo (Mary Gibbs). She goes through the portal from her room to the monster's world. The movie concerns Sulley's attempt to return her to her bedroom. (Some may get a little queasy since the corporation sends out men in decontamination suits, viewing Boo as something akin to a biological hazard. Most kids won't notice. It's their parents who may be a tad uncomfortable.)

Boo is a sweetheart who can barely talk. Instead, she merrily babbles, cries and laughs. Sulley, a big, green and purple monster, is a lovable teddy bear sort who treats Boo with a boundless reserve of love, kindness and protection. We should all be blessed with such monsters in our closets.

The last act is easily the most fun. In pursuit of Boo's door, we careen down a conveyor belt of doors, popping in and out of the human world. It's like a Disneyland ride -- and probably will be in the future. The final scene is a real charmer. If I could just get the other three Pixar movies out of my mind, I might really get excited about this movie.

MONSTERS, INC. runs 1:24. It is rated G and would be fine for all ages, with the possible exception of easily frightened kids under 5.

My son Jeffrey, age 12, gave it ***, saying it was good and funny. There with his seventh grade class, friends and relatives, most of the kids gave the movie *** or *** 1/2. Sam found it annoying and Noveed thought it was too cutesy, but most of the others were enthusiastic. Typical was Caitlin, who thought the movie was "really, really good." Several of the kids compared it to SHREK, and those that did all liked SHREK a little better.
