Review: Monsters Inc (3D)

World of Blackout 77-Word Film Review

Monsters Inc. (3D)
Cert: U / 92 mins / Dir. Pete Docter

While the 3D is nicely retrofitted to this timely re-release, it adds little, and the actual animation is starting to look a little dated. The only reason that's even noticeable is because of Pixar's continuing high standards. With storytelling this strong it wouldn't really matter but Boo is... well creepy-looking a lot of the time.

This is still a fantastic movie, but maybe save the cinema visit for the sequel?

Is the trailer representative of the film?

Did I laugh, cry, gasp and sigh when I was supposed to?

Does it achieve what it sets out to do?

Pay at the cinema, Rent on DVD or just wait for it to be on the telly?

Will I think less of you if we disagree about how good/bad this film is?

Will I watch it again?

Is there a Wilhelm Scream?

And because you won't be happy until I've given it a score...

*1 I didn't hear one, anyway. Let me know if I missed it.
