MONSTERS, INC. (Theatrical Release USA 2001)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

Monsters, Inc.
—outstanding storyline with highly innovative characters—becomes a classic film for children and adults from its opening to its closing scenes. A sweet message comes through this film that provides excellent opportunity for after viewing discussion between parents and children to help instill compassion and a strong understanding of the necessity to protect life even when one’s own reputation and means of maintenance may be threatened. The dialogue is excellent. The scenes are exceptionally well-timed. Especially appreciated is the deep richness of the story. There is no lack of story, as sometimes seen in other movies, where there is a visible struggle to fully fill the time requirements to meet standards for the movie to be classified as a full-length film.  WOW! What a Bravo! movie. It is completely rewatchable and one of those ‘must add this to the family home video library’ movies. Great work for Directors Pete Doctor, David Silverman, and Lee Unkrich.
